Idiocy of Gender Equality: The Case of the Woman Imam

The title of this article is misleading but the author makes a good point. Muslims are tow-kowing to the demands and accusations of those who know nothing about our deen and haven't been so pro-feminist in the past or in the present society with the high statistics of poverty and violence against women.

"The moderate brigade constantly shout about Women’s rights in Islam as a means to deflect criticisms emanating from the secular camp without once thinking about the credentials of those who are dispensing the criticisms. Do the critics have the right? To answer this question we need to examine their track record against what they preach. If they pass the test only then it makes sense to entertain their charges. Otherwise it is a pointless exercise to entertain the words of hypocrites.

Verily, they will not be satisfied with you until you follow their millah...
