Afghan Muslim Qazi Nazir Ahmad Hanifi is a relic of ages past. He currently represents Herat province and is a member of the Islamic Ulema Council of Afghanistan. Of course, this means he’s an exemplar of all manner of 7th-century savagery.
When Afghanistan’s president moved to appoint the first woman to the nation’s supreme court, Hanifi reacted predictably. “Under Islam, a woman can only be a judge in small family affairs,” he commented. Of course, western feminists are silent about this obvious form of patriarchy, instead preferring to chastise men who sit with their legs too far apart on public transit. Because western feminists are too scared to criticize Islam in any way for fear of erroneously being labeled “racist,” someone else has to.
If Islam does not afford women the same rights as men as learned scholar Hanifi claims, perhaps those who claim Islam exalts women have some explaining to do. Islam treats women as being beneath men; YDM675 will demonstrate this.
Hanifi also reveals his idiocy to the world on his Facebook wall. He posted (paraphrased from Google Translate), “The mujahideen have answered colonialism with blood. They are icons of a nation and proudly sacrificed for their faith and their Qur’an… may the martyrs’ spirits soar on the wind.” Wow. So he hates women and supports jihad violence. Religion of peace. Totally not deserving of criticism.
