Muslim women and dating

01 Mar

But scarves and veils aren’t the only reasons Muslim women are targeted more than men – another big factor is attitude.Mussurut Zia, of the Muslim Women’s Network, explains: “Modesty in Islam isn’t just about the clothes you wear – it’s your behaviour and what you say as well. They’re all the things you’d expect someone to do if they were in danger.[If a Muslim woman was attacked] she wouldn’t raise her voice. But a Muslim woman wouldn’t because it’s not part of her faith.” • People grab our veils, call us terrorists and want us dead': What it's really like to be a Muslim woman in Britain As a convert this is something Kayani has had to learn.She once swore back at a racist who insulted her, but immediately regretted her actions.

She converted to Islam around eight years ago, and tells me she’s regularly experienced Islamophobia where she lives in Nottingham.A spokesman for the Monnickendam Police, where the incident took place, said: 'The boy in the video attacking a boy on crutches is a Dutch national'.Seconds later, Trump retweeted a video showing what is claimed to be a Muslim man destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary.Now she tries to react calmly whenever she’s a victim of hate crime, just like most of the Muslim women in her community.“We know being seen as a Muslim in public will have its challenges,” she says.
