I’m glad Amrita drew my attention to Love Jihad. It’s an evil, depraved, low scheme. I’ve been married almost 7 years now but it’s never too late to be given a heads up. I’m so glad I caught on to the OA’s downright execrable agenda! I plan to take this to court too.
Not just the OA but my other brothers in law will be sued. We’re 7 or 8 Christian girls from, get this – the SAME family – all married to non-Christian guys from different parts of the country and the world. But I am positive it’s a conspiracy. And I’m going to rope Jawahara in to help me although I am convinced that she’d be a useless ally considering her own plan flopped so miserably! Actually any other women in inter-religious marriages who would like to sign up? And don’t listen to this lady either – she’s not rabid enough a fanatic to be on our side.
And thats not all – our husbands are going to try and get us to bear non-Christian children from our ‘Christian’ wombs. I assure you – my womb is a very Christian one – it even has a cross tattooed on it and I am horrified at what it has been victim to. The OA has successfully got two specimens from my womb.
But it will have to end with me. I’m going to be sending bags of condoms to my aunts and cousins – all blessed by …errr (damn, the Pope won’t be blessing them, seeing that they’re condoms – and I’m not Catholic so I doubt I’d get his blessings on any of my wild schemes anyway) – well, blessed by me then, so that their heinous plot is fouled. Apparently some priests are also on to this scummy scheme and have commented in – hold your breath – the Mid-day, that upholder of all that is true and well-researched!
The Hindu of course is talking through its hat! As is expected. I prefer to trust this “Omniscient” gentleman (gotta love the handle!) who has among other things made a blanket statement on the Hindu girls coming from richer families than the Muslim boys. And the boys coming from suffocating Islamic backgrounds. Wow – even my sarcasm is ill-equipped to deal with this. No more cracks at the poor OA are forthcoming. Sheer outrage at the idiocy of some of the commenters.
When I read shit like this it depresses me beyond measure. For every step forward that I imagine we’ve taken, there’s an idiot somewhere dragging us back by about 500 years and then some. For instance, here’s an adult woman admitting to have willingly converted and married her lover – who are we to jump in and tell her she’s mistaken and actually, without her knowledge, been forced into a larger, foul scheme? I’m thinking of calling up all the women I know who have made free choices for the sake of love – be it conversion, switching to vegetarianism or non-vegetarianism, moving cities or countries, learning a new language, taking their husband’s surname, taking on old and infirm in-laws or any of a 100 other things that you do for love – and informing them that they’ve been had. That this was not something they wanted to do. Oh no – something foul is afoot – and it’s a man who is messing with your head and you are nothing but a link in a larger evil plan. Capisce?
He couldn’t possibly have fallen in love with you for the person you are. Oh no – you’re certainly not worthy of his love. Now get the eff out of his way and let him get on with his plan. And there is certainly no credit due to you for being a thinking, intelligent woman who might have chosen to do something for the sake of your man, your marriage and your future life together. And no, we’re certainly not going to stop and ask what he might have done for your sake. No sirree, we have better things to do and snappier judgments to make.
And the cheek of it! The unmitigated gall… The parents are being given “custody” of their adult daughters. I’m just thinking my father wouldn’t live to see the next day if he ever tried something like that on me. It also amazes me that the courts don’t realise that at this point, the unhappy family will accuse the other of just about anything if their child marries against their wishes (speaking from personal experience here!). And religion, sadly, just walks neatly into that trap.
Just when I think we can raise our heads after the shame of the Rizwanur case (speaking of which, there seems to be no new development in the last year, although I did find this) we make a public ass of ourselves by coining such phrases, letting them go on record in a court of law *shudder,* oh the shame and ugh – people over the world watching us make a spectacle of ourselves over what is a private matter between a man and a woman.
When will we learn not to allow our lives and our loves to be manipulated by those with political ulterior motives.
Getting back to the matter at hand, my cousins shall be intimated tomorrow and we shall go to court against all the men who have married us against our wills, and made us pawns in their evil game. And custody of our poor weak minds and bodies shall be returned to our parents (I can see my parents packing their bags and heading off indefinitely to destinations unknown, at the thought of me being returned to them). See you on the other side of the court case then.
