It’s Ramadan. Which is always a good time for the fanatics / forces of darkness / narrow-minded crazies, who have been in the driver seat of muslim culture for too long.. its a good time for them to come up with all kinds of stuff..
- In Sudan, a woman was jailed, after a judge find her guilty of indecency. Why? She wore trousers.. Read the BBC story..
- On the internet, someone just launched a Halal search engine. Meaning: it supposedly only returns results in line with some ultra conservative/fanatic interpretation of Islamic teachings.
- Also on the net, someone launched a ‘pure’ YouTube. Meaning: It shows pre-checked videos that are in line with the above mentioned ‘teachings’. This also means that absolutely no women appear in any video. And music is stripped off videos.
And no, I won’t link to those sites because:
a. I don’t want to increase their Google rankings
b. They already have enough traffic. There are a lot of people who believe that sites like these are good.
