    Countries where religious law prevails social and political revolutions and revolts go to garbage box , it is good that there are these activists working for changes to be made but if they really want to achieve change they must question the root cause for every problem . In country like Pakistan a lot of people need change along with the women.

      Dr Aidennwitz 3 months ago +1

      @Vitor Oliveira
      Sorry, I misunderstood you then; to me, you appeared to share OP's point of view that there is something called "real feminism," implying the existence of "fake feminism," but there's no such thing. We can only talk about more popular or less popular trends, or those with less traction and more traction.
      Of course, radical splinters of any movement are also part of that movement, but the fact is that their importance in politics or anywhere outside the internet/campus is marginal compared to your typical pro-choice, anti-gender-based violence and workplace discrimination crowd.
      In other words, implying that Pakistani feminism is more "real" than western feminism is wrong, not only because there's no way to measure it, but because the implied undertone of such message is that there exists western feminism that does not tackle actual everyday problems, and that it constitutes a significant fraction of western feminist though, which is false.

    • Faizan A

      @Dr Aidennwitz I dont know what tumbrl feminist looks like. But of course i didnt said that, i said that if memes are a fair representation of any reality, like tumbrl feminists, its valid representation of the subject "tumbrl feminist". But as i said before, ther eare many forms of expression about feminism, so if a meme refers to tumbrl feminists, this meme wouldnt be a fair represenation of other different feminist groups.
      Like, is very common to see in any form of protest a major pacific group and a small violent group. The small one speaks for itself, not for the whole group. The same aplies to feminism.

      The origin of it is in a flock of illiterate village ladies fighting over nothing and started dealing low blows using religion. The ones who had numbers won.

I will answer just briefly that he waged war on them after tolerating their violence for 13 years. You can read about it in Islamic literature or Hazrat Muhammad's Islamic biography. Before imposing any more questions, first think that whether is your question based on research or Fox news' propaganda.

      @Nayyera Khan IF what you portray about yourself is accurate, and you are truly being honest with yourself, and not rationalizing away your indiscretions, and pretending to appear more pious than you are.... THEN, you are in the minority, and not the majority, as I have come to observe.

      I have also come to the conclusion, that one runs into as much less problems in generalizing people erroneously, than in NOT generalizing them when it is accurate, and suffering for it when they turn out to fit the generalization. I have no moral qualms with generalizing, so guilt-tripping me won't work.

      I put the onus on the individual to disprove my generalizations, than for me to give them the default benefit of the doubt. A lesson one learns with age and wisdom, instead of naive, youthful idealism.

    • Nayyera Khan
      Nayyera Khan 3 months ago

      @The Flaneur our religion never puts us down. Yes you might have seen some girls who pretend to be relogious but are not in reality but that doesn't mean to generalize this rule on every religious person. No one is pure, everyone makes mistakes and not all muslim girls who take hijab do this for show off. Many women take hijab because they love and obey their God and they also try to stay modest and pure (try to stay far from illegitimate relations as best ad they can). They bear too much criticism from their families, relatives, friends and society but they stick to their hijab no matter what because they have not taken it for the people, they have taken it to obey their God.

    • The Flaneur
      The Flaneur 3 months ago +1

      The irony being, that women hide behind the veil, and religion in order to pretend to be pious and have legitimacy in the community, AFTER they have slutted it up, and partied in their youth. And I speak from direct experience with this. I know girls who've slept with 500 guys, and other's who've been full on lesbian, but who pretend to be religious in order to settle down with some beta chump who will put a ring on it, when they are getting fat and old. Women in particular say religion limits them, but it is they who seek out such superstitious woo-woo, and in particular the collective, which most religions are.

      Very similar to nuns, and Christian church girls who sleep around in private, and use religion to virtue signal, to get people off "the scent" of who they are in private. Much like gays and pedos who hide behind the mask of the religion/church as well. I personally remember converting a girl to my religion, and then realized she did it just for show, and was the most sinister person I ever met. I then realized I could trust "religious" people the least, since they wear it as a fashion, and convenient one which suits their circumstances.

      Point being, people like her might complain religion holds them down, but it comes in convenient in so many other ways for them, later on. Though not for the actual ideological/spiritual purposes as we'd all come to expect from them.

    As long as there's a void within us, we live to only fill that. Once we have no void within, we begin to appreciate others and the outside world, for we then don't want the world to give anything to us, but for us to give the world.

      I definitely have a massive void within me.
      I spend on food, clothing, accessories, jewellery, stationary anything I feel I need. Sadly... I’ve spent thousands on self help courses, books, webinars, workshops.
      What’s going on? What void am I filling? What is this massive neediness within me I feel all the time??
      Loll sorry this talk is about something else.. I’m just reflecting on this cause I’ve hit rock bottom for like the 950th time..
      Any books or advice/information to help with this would be much appreciated!!!

      Nimra Faisal maybe you personally don’t have to experience abuse or violence and I’m glad if that is your reality because I do not want that for anyone and hope you feel the same. Please try and help your fellow Muslims to stop the violence against the innocents. No one wants violence against Muslims but most people who are not Muslims do not think in alignment or can ever condone child brides or the very strict subjugation of women across the board. Nothing should be forced on them. I would think most reasonable Muslims who are not extreme beliefs would be on the same page. Can’t we all agree to protect women and children? That’s my issue with what is witnessed in nations of Islam. Otherwise I am in agreement to live and let live as long as any religion isn’t committing crimes against others especially rape, violence or murder. There has to be an end to these practices.

    • A XMysterygirlX
      A XMysterygirlX 3 months ago

      Nimra Faisal I am not a person who spreads hate but one of abhorance for abuse of people especially women and children and that is under ANY nation or religion. I just want all of that to stop and for kids to grow up happy and peaceful with a chance to have a complete childhood followed by a chance to develop as a person without ever experiencing harm or abuse in any form. What’s so wrong about that? You basically say it okay in some cases for a young child to be married and have marital obligations instead of having a complete childhood with their own family if possible or extended family. I don’t hate Muslims I do hate what many people do in the name of it against innocents. I do not consider that belief to be wrong, to defend the poor kids. I do not condone violence against anyone I want for it to stop and help the ones affected by it. I wish it wasn’t protected under laws.

    • A XMysterygirlX
      A XMysterygirlX 3 months ago

      Nimra Faisal look you can argue what Islam teaches until you are blue in the face but that doesn’t erase or make it untrue all the countless witnesses ( and their stories) to what is done in the name of Islam worldwide. These people are the ones making your life harder by using Islam to defend or excuse their crimes. They are the ones doing this and people who are outraged over it are not “ immoral” as you call me. You are attacking people that want the violence to end.

    • A XMysterygirlX
      A XMysterygirlX 3 months ago

      Nimra Faisal then if they are not Muslims the rest of the Muslim community needs to go and stop what is being done in the name of their religion and god because this isn’t just a one off here and there as you almost seem to make it appear. This is a well known fact that abuses occur and it’s true and real. The people speaking out against it are people who care about what happens to those innocent kids who were unlucky enough to been born into it all.
      You shouldn’t be arguing with others but rather trying to stop it and YOU have far more sway or influence as fellow Muslim because we know that any outsider who isn’t a Muslim won’t be taken seriously and could in some nations be arrested for it. A nation has to stand up against it but again I don’t see those who benefit from the atrocities being willing to change.

    • A XMysterygirlX
      A XMysterygirlX 3 months ago

      Nimra Faisal explain why so many Islamic nations have these problems. You seemed to ignore this. Why are women who have been raped then stoned often by other family members? You are basically saying that everything that is out in the media or news worldwide and all the Muslims telling of their experiences of abuse are all liars. You are denying it. You are saying this is not Islam yet it occurs daily around the world. Yet all those people telling their story must be liars. That’s amazing.

      Stop exaggerating it. I’m guessing you’re from a very dramatic culture.
      Picking on Muslims. There’s almost two billion Muslims. From every culture. Speak every language. From every race. It’s not as black and white as you wish to paint it.

I am not saying that science and technology are not important but they don't teach us how to live. If there is no religion and people like hitler,

Are you suggesting the massacre that followed was somehow justified by what happened to those pilgrims? Hmm isn’t that the same logic that Kashmiri insurgents use? The Indian army has committed numerous human rights abuses in Kashmir, does that mean Kashmiris have the right to murder innocent indian civilians? If anyone needs to be introspective it’s you, your entire argument is totally contradictory

      Introspection is being done? Like I said stating facts will always be difficult as there is a BIG BJP MEDIA MACHINE, trying to brainwash 1.3 billion people in earth, which becomes more easy when music of patriotism is being played in background. So these people obviously will have more presence on social media will replicate that propoganda (not knowingly).
      Again if I request the report on human right violation has no specific mentions of right violation from Pakistan side (I wonder why?) BUT is clearly stating that the report is specially in focus of human rights violation by India.
      You have 700k army in Kashmir for heavens sake, what is that for?
      You my friend need to please help these people and us all.
      {By the way I live in area adjacent to Pakistan Kashmir and have never heard a single objection by them or seen anything that I as a human (not Pakistani or Indian) can feel bad a out.}

Although that article has been rightly ignored by the world, I suggest you read it in full. As it is saying those things for BOTH India AND Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
      '84 Sikh genocide (condemnable) happened AFTER India's action against Khalistani terrorists.
      '02 riots happened AFTER a train carrying Hindu pilgrims was locked from outside, and they were set on fire by some Muslims!
      So, BTW that's furthest from the truth.
      PS. In areas we do need to introspect, we already are, and that's why India is improving by leaps and bounds, and Pakistan is barely managing to stay off the bottom.
      PPS. Seriously INTROSPECT AND ACT, it's for your own good.
      Over and out lol.
