1.0 out of 5 stars the caged virgin, 25 Jan. 2010
This review is from: The Caged Virgin: A Muslim Woman's Cry for Reason (Paperback)
It is clear that she has suffered in the hands of the somalian people but she is also confusing religion with culture. Alot of the suffering she has faced were due to culture and not Islam, this shows that there is a fine line between religion and culture and often it is easy to mix them up. I myself am a muslim girl and have NEVER faced any problems, this may be due to my culture being more liberal and hers being more conservative, but never the less one must educate themselves about both islam and different cultures before they make any statements. Again her sufereing was caused by somalian cultural beliefs and their misunderstanding of the religion. A true follower of Islam would know that these acts are strongly against our religion.

Her current suffering is because she is living under a death sentence, that is not cultural but religious fanatics.

She also lived in Holland and saw much there from a mix of Islamic cultures.

Mohammed was quite 'catholic' in his approach to the invention of Islam. He drew from pagan, Jewish and Christian sources to cobble together his new religion.

He also wove the backward cultural traditions of the region inextricably into Islam; the misogyny, violence and superstitions which hold back adherents of Islam today are intrinsic features of the original idea.

Sadly, few Muslims are honest enough to recognise this.
