Texters in Pakistan better start watching their language.
Pakistan's telecommunications authority sent a letter ordering cellphone companies to block text messages containing what it perceives to be obscenities, Anjum Nida Rahman, a spokeswoman for Telenor Pakistan, said Friday.
It also sent a list of more than 1,500 English and Urdu words that were to be blocked.
It also included relatively mild terms like fart and idiot.
The reasons for blocking some words, including Jesus Christ, headlights and tampon, were less clear, raising questions about religious freedom and practicality. Any word could conceivably be part of a spam message.
The letter...stated that free speech can be restricted "in the interest of the glory of Islam."
Funny how the Left - which claims to be a women's movement - calls for the destruction of the liberal state of Israel, while supporting regimes who impose a rule of law that won't allow for women to discuss basic female hygiene (or shine their, ahem, "headlights") via text message. Well, no one said liberals were smart. Just angry.
But some subjects of Islamic misogyny are done waiting for their enlightened Western sisters to help them, and have begun to fight back for themselves. Like 20 year-old Egyptian blogger Aliaa Maghda Elmahdy, an atheist and self-described “secular liberal feminist vegetarian individualist Egyptian,” who posted nude pictures as “screams against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy,”
Hey, #OWS losers, listen up: This is what "A Rebel's Diary" looks like:
“The yellow rectangles on my eyes, mouth and sex organ resemble the censoring of our knowledge, expression and sexuality,”
Good luck fighting against that, imams...
If you want to see real women's movement - look to Islam. They are the most oppressed under the system, and they are refused the right to even address their identity, their sexuality, or even their basic hygienic needs. The men benefit from this slavery, so they ain't gonna fight for change. It is the Islamic women who will lead the way to freedom for those under the sway of the caliphate - see Sila Sahin "body of work", or the bravery of Pakistani actress Veena Malik, as she challenges an imam here, and embraces her femininity here.
Got get 'em, girls - and while those foolish bearded phonies pretend to claw their eyes out, kick them in the crotch and take back your nations:
