A Muslim girl was captured on camera twerking in Britainstahn and has received death threats for being an independent spirit. Dancing, music, singing, comedy, laughing and saying nice things about Jews is forbidden in Islam, (the last one is okay if you're only saying the nice things to trick the Jew for whatever nefarious reason) so twerking obviously falls into that category known as haram.
Since the video went viral, the poor girl has apologized for "disrespecting" Islam. But the question that comes to mind is: how does one disrespect an ideology when it's inanimate? Ideas have no feelings to disrespect.
The girl, whose name is unknown because she values life and dance, was criticized after the video filmed in Birmingham showed her having fun by twerking. She happened to be wearing a piece of cloth around her head known as a hijab, which identifies her as Muslim and a prime target to be killed by other Muslims for twerking. Over a million people viewed the video on social media and it received thousands of negative comments by people with opinions on how you should lead your life. Some of the comments included death threats.
One extremely pious and devout person, possibly having just finished Salat al-'asr (late afternoon prayer) tweeted: "F*****g s**t someone give me her address I will kill her." Followed by another person, possibly an extremist imam: "Stupid b***h needs to be killed."
They only watched the video 72 times--one for each virgin they can't wait to score.
Evidently, these two found twerking more offensive than their language and threats.
A conservative YouTuber Ali Dawah, called the girl's dance "really bad" and "inappropriate." Dawah, a conservative Muslim interviewed the girl on YouTube and she apologized for disrespecting the religion after his repeated reminders that the community is judging her actions and is hoping she will identify herself with her home address.
Dawah asked her why she'd twerked in public. She said, "I was out with my friends, we were going shopping and there were these people playing music [OMG!] there was one song that a girl want to dance with me," she said, adding that she has mental health problems and often can't "think straight."
Dawah got the girl to a point where she began crying. He forced her to apologize for her unchained moment of joy.
"To all the girls that wear hijab and wear abayah I'm sorry for disrespecting it," she said. "I've learnt from my mistake . . . I'm just hurt, I just want everybody to leave it alone and keep everything away.
"I don't want it to be how it was and I'm not gonna do anything like that again and I'm sorry for disrespecting it and thank you to all of you that helped." [While thinking 'and please don't kill me'.]
His co-host Musa, said in the show, "this is why music is haram [forbidden]."
Maryam Namazie, an Iranian critic of sharia and proponent of secularism, criticized those social media jihadists who demanded the girl apologize. She tweeted: "Why the hell does she need to say sorry".
Islam, the tolerant, softer religion of peace.
