In the bad old days you had to go around to the back door if you were of the wrong race. In the new Islamic order — here in the United States already, at least in this mosque in West Virginia — you have to go around to the back if you’re the wrong gender. This is a manifestation of the same law that oppresses non-Muslim dhimmis. But one Muslim woman is fighting back. This from AP, with thanks to Andy Bannister:
A woman is trying to break a gender barrier — in her West Virginia mosque.
Asra Nomani is filing a discrimination complaint against a mosque that asks women to enter by a side door. The Morgantown congregation also separates men and women during prayer services.
Three months ago, Nomani, her mother and niece entered the mosque through the front door and began praying in the main room.
Nomani claims the men then broke off the service and tried to intimidate her into leaving. She and her father — a mosque board member — have complained to police.
The mosque board plans to meet soon on the situation, but will give no other comment.
The dispute comes as research indicates more U-S mosques are separating men and women during prayer.
