Google promotes the Sharia’s dress code for women in their latest doodle celebrating the Islamic holiday, the Ramadan.
Houndreds of million of women all over the world live without the most basic human rights. They live under the brutal Islamic laws, the Sharia. The Sharia laws give husbands the right to beat their wife/wives (Quran 4:34) and allows them to have sex with girls down to nine years of age (because this is what their good example, Muhammed did). Besides giving men the right to abuse women and girls, Sharia robs Muslim women of their right to pick their own religion (leaving Islam is to be punished with death according to Sharia) and to chose their own sex parter(s): The family has to approve their husband, and should she wish to divorce her often violent partner, she needs his permission and will have to pay him for it (arabic: khula’). Sex before or outside the marriage is unthinkable (punishment according to Sharia: Death by stoning).
By marking the Ramadan with a veiled Muslima Google romantizies brutal religious suppression of women. If the Disneyfied woman on Google’s Arabified logo should chose to rid herself of the veil, leave her suppressive family and go find a man that she really loves – she would be killed.
Not so Disney-like, is it? The woman on Google’s Ramadan logo is not free, she’s a prisoner of her own religion.
So how does Google celebrate Easter? They don’t (though they do celebrate “The 56th Anniversary of Xingu Indigenous Park in Brazil”, “Mountain Day” and the Indonesian holiday “Mudik” – with a veiled woman…).
An expert in search engines explains here how Google in their search results promotes Islam and disadvantage critisism of islam.
Too bad, especially for the many Muslim women who see nothing romantic in having to wear several layers of warm cloth because nobody is allowed to see the shape of her body – or who dreams of just going of the the beach in a bikini.
