Veena Malik Gives The Business To Muslim Cleric: True Empowerment With Grace and Beauty

posted at 3:00 pm on March 28, 2011 by

Veena Malik is a stunningly beautiful Pakistani actress. She also appeared on India’s version of Big Brother and, upon her return, did an interview for Pakistani TV.  Ed Driscoll over at Pajamas Media has the video, which he sets up with a quote from Michael Weiss at New Criterion:

A former participant on India’s version of “Big Brother” where she apparently smooched a man and wore revealing outfits, Veena returned to Pakistan, went on television and got confronted by a commissar-like anchor asking her if she didn’t feel that she’d embarrassed herself, her faith and her country by her behavior in an enemy land. She was then further insulted via satellite by a fat and furry cleric with one hand on his sacred book and the other on his heavy heart. He’d never watched Indian “Big Brother” yet one clearly sensed that his enmity stemmed from a knowledge that he wouldn’t know the likes of Veena’s companionship until those celestial virgins fulfilled their end of the nasty bargain.

The video is a must-see (if time limited, skip ahead to the 3 minute mark):

My only regret is that the cleric was not physically in studio with Ms. Malik – I would have loved to see her pop him in the nose. I also hope to see her one day take on this Egyptian cleric, who proudly and excitedly declares all the ways that beating one’s wife actually honors the wife; she should be ashamed if not beaten. There is etiquette, you see! You can’t hit her in the face, lest you make her ugly. How thoughtful! You also cannot use a long rod, only a short one otherwise that would be disrespectful.

I’d like to teach both these clerics a little something about respect. With my fist. (I know, I know. Two wrongs don’t make a right, violence never solves anything, yada yada. But, come on. They so have it coming.)

Muslim women like Veena Malik are incredibly brave and strong; they are the only ones speaking out and daring to confront the clerics. These women are just getting their first wave feminism – the real kind, not the kind that our “feminists” make up out of whole cloth while ignoring actual subjugation due to ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘being enlightened’. They speak out while in fear of their lives.

Literally. There are death threats against Ms. Malik now.

Actually two wrong do frequently make a right and violent does solve a great deal.

These women are just getting their first wave feminism – the real kind, not the kind that our “feminists” make up out of whole cloth while ignoring actual subjugation due to ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘being enlightened’. They speak out while in fear of their lives.

This is not a small problem. Islam is fundamentally different than Christianity. Woman were given their rights in the west by an all male legislature. That isn’t going to happen in Islam. Another major difference is that we in the west did not kill the women protesters, we did not rape them, we did not torture them and there was nothing in the bible or the culture that would have justified that sort of behavior. None of that is true with Islam.

It is like Gandhi and his non-violent resistance. It would only have worked with someone who is fundamentally decent. The Jews found out what non-violence brought you when faced with evil, and that was death.

Veena Malik is indeed a very brave woman but she is going to lose this fight and very possibly her life.

Her “beauty” has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Didn’t we just have a long talk about bullies? We’re dealing here with men who believe that the word of God tells them to bully women, persistantly and habitually, and to make a virtue of it.

A crashingly powerful physical response is not a complete answer. But it may be a first step.

That’s not a fait accompli, but I’m really hoping someone is willing to step in to help her out. I don’t think she’ll be able to fight this battle alone.

It isn’t a certainty but it is a very real possibility. If she remains quite then she will probably live but if she keeps it up things will get worse for her. As to someone helping her, who could that be? Anyone from the west would just make things worse for her unless she is willing to make a run for it.

She’s seeking asylum in a foreign country. I hope she does better than Salman Rushdie and gets off the hit list.

On reflection, it seems to me that there is a step that the governments of the West (and of China and India) MUST take, one of many that will be necessary before this scourge is “sponged and purged, and if need be, blasted from the earth”: The governments of the West must declare as enemies ANYONE who calls publicly and credibly for the murder, assasination, or enslavement of any person in the territories of those nations (collectively) or any citizen or subject of those nations anywhere in the world. And they must back that assertion by an active program to hunt down and kill any such person, wherever they may be or whatever authority they claim, by any means overt or covert.

And they must affirm their right to do so, and claim full credit, and if that results in riots then those riots must be put down. Deadly force, if it occurs, must be met with deadly force. Looters must be met with sufficient force, deadly if necessary.

Until that happens, until the leaders who call for murder and have murder occur are themselves held responsible, this contagion of blood and hate will spread.

Who really knows? It’s been done before.

gryphon202 on March 28, 2011 at 9:20 PM

Has she been arrested yet? You know the stones will fly after this.

Kudos to you Ma’am.
