British Minister walks out of wedding where men and women were segregated
A British Minister walked out of a Muslim wedding in the UK when he was told he would not be able to sit with his wife, as men and women were segregated at the ceremony.
Increasingly, this bizarre practise of gender apartheid at weddings is being enforced on Western Muslims by the Mosque establishment that takes its cues from Saudi Arabia, Iran or the Muslim Brotherhood.
I got married in Pakistan 35 years ago and even then, in that Islamic country, men and women were not segregated. Now, this backward Saudi custom has been imported in the UK, Canada and other Western countries. Some Muslim weddings have become joyless occasions where the atmosphere is more suitable for a funerals, not fun.
Good for this British MP. I wish all politicians put there foot down and boycott all attempts to relegate women to second class humans and depict them as sexual objects in the name of religion and multiculturalism.
