Fawzia Peer’s ‘sinful life’ defies Sharia laws
WITH reference to Nabeelah Shaikh’s article on Fawzia Peer (Sunday Tribune Herald, July 16), the purpose of life on Earth, for Muslims, is to be in submission to the commands of their creator.
To be able to do this, we must be thoroughly acquainted with his commands. The article outlining deputy mayor Fawzia Peer’s life shows it’s clearly in conflict with Islamic teaching. To me, it seems her sinful life, which is in the public domain, does not prick her conscience. She is a “progressive” Westernised woman, the antithesis of Muslim womanhood. They prowl the streets, rub shoulders with every Tom, Dick and Harry and project their voices in public.
Does Mrs Peer not know the pristine laws of the Sharia? Picture making/photography are forbidden, a nation will not prosper that assigns its affairs to women. Islam is a system of patriarchy and women may not emerge from their homes unless compelled by circumstances. When circumstances arise they must cover their bodies, face and hair. A ELIAS Asherville
