What have you done for us lately Islam?

May 13

Nothing more than dehumanizing women more than they were already.

The largest Muslim seminary in India, Darul Uloom of Deoband, has issued a fatwa against working Muslim women, saying working with men is not Islamic.

The fatwa says it is unlawful for Muslim women to do any job in government or private institutions that entails men and women working together and women having to talk to men without the veil.

The Deoband clerics say it is clearly mentioned in the Shariat that women should wear the veil in office and should not mix with male colleagues.

The fatwa has been endorsed by Muslim clerics of other schools of thought.

via Fatwa to working Muslim women: Don’t talk to male colleagues.
