Little mosque on the prairie Youtube video: My reaction to a reaction!
This is something you should watch. I order you.

You get an exception if you are on a dial up connection. Then you cannot watch this, as it is going to take you a full month to load. If you have a decent (by Indian standards) connection, I suggest you click on the link below, wait till it starts playing, click Play, then click Pause in a second, and then wait for 20-30 minutes for it to load fully.

Little Mosque on the Prairie Youtube video

Little mosque on the prairie is a canadian sitcom that makes gentle fun at the way the entire hoo-ha about Muslims in the western world work, the problems, the insecurities, and all going nuts.

After watching the video on Youtube, I scrolled down to watch this reaction by someone with a username called 'amuslimsister'

This below is what amuslimsister says about the video.

I really dont like this show because it doesnt represent what really goes on in the Muslim world. All they did was put some kaffirs in hijab and call them"Muslim", and teach them some of our rituals. The part i hate the most was when they were praying, and someone in the bacround made noise so they all got to look. Its ridiculos and an insult.
And I wanted to react so badly. For some strange reason, Youtube was not posting my comments, and so here I am with them on this blog:

1. I really dont like this show because it doesnt represent what really goes on in the Muslim world.
The show is about a mosque on the prairie, not in the muslim world. I thought that was obvious.
Its about the Muslim world in Canada interacts with the world around it.

3. All they did was put some kaffirs
Yes. That is called acting. Sometimes, christians act as Hindus, Hindus act as christians, muslims act as jews (yes, that also happens. nothing new.)

5. The part i hate the most ....
It is built into the human nature by God / allah / whoever to look when startled. That quality helps humans to sense danger and avoid it. It is entirely divine.

So there.

Kargil Shias rubbish AISPLB nikahnama
...
Kashmir’s Kargil is saying no to the Shia nikahnama. The Shia-dominated town has in fact rejected the model nikahnama adopted by the All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB), which provides a Muslim woman with a right to divorce. Shias found support from the Sunnis too who said the nikahnama was against the Islamic law.

Rejecting the new nikahnama, Shia leaders said that Islam has given women the right to marry to any person of their choice but she has no right to divorce. A true Muslim cannot act against the teachings of the holy Quran, they added.

Terming the AISPLB decision as against the Islamic rules, they said only the man has right to divorce under Islamic law. Alleging that the All India Shia Personal Law Board was trying to subvert the Muslim laws, the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) too has said no to the model nikahnama.

There is widespread belief among the Shias in Kargil and Ladakh that the new norms were against the teachings of Quran and Prophet Mohammad.

Just a few days ago, on Novemeber 26, the AISPLB had adopted a model 'nikahnama' at a meeting in Mumbai in a bid to protect women not only in case of domestic violence but also provide security if the situation of a divorce arises.

The nikahnama was born considering that the women are the weaker sex and needed protection. However, with protests against the model code gaining in strength, it might end up as a still-born.
