008-Re: Theo Van Gogh’s film Submission, Women in the Qu’ran

Most of you are not aware that the woman in the video ‘Submission’ is quoting and commenting on verses in the Qur’an, namely, Sura 4:34 (allowing a husband to beat his wife) and Sura 24:30-31, demanding Muslim women to cover their bosom, and veil themselves, except to their relatives (including their uncles). This movie, however repulsive, shows how easily verses from Allah can and are being used by Muslim men every day to abuse their women…what an indictment against the Qur’an. Theo Van Gogh was killed for making this film and when it appears on YouTube it often gets taken down. In this video I read out some of the verses against women that feature in the film so that you can judge for yourself if it should be censored.
