Every time I see or hear extremist clerics of Islam spread violence hatred and intolerance, I wonder what they think their prophet would think of their actions. I also wonder why their followers don't ask the self same question of their religious "leaders". Then I remember that faith is as blind as it is destructive and is the main source of human suffering.
The latest target of the archaic zealots is Amina Tyler.
Amina is a 19 year old Tunisian girl who recently posted a topless photo on Facebook in protest at the inequality and subjugation of women in her (Muslim) society.
Amina is being detained by her family under house arrest - incommunicado - and with the help of local police. She has received numerous death threats after appearing with the words "Fuck your morals" and "My body is mine and not the source of anyone's honour" written across her torso.
Her brave and noble campaign has since inspired world wide protests in support of her actions.
You can also read the inspirational words of fellow blogger SoggyMog on her valiant effort to highlight Amina's plight.
Amina is extremely brave to stand up for her rights in a society where such actions can easily lead to her death.
I know the Islam preachers of hate will try to break her bones, but will they ever break her spirit?
I sincerely hope not.
I ask all my blogpals to please support Amina by spreading this campaign through social media.
Together we can make a difference.
