Muslim Women Are Not Allowed To Have Facebook Account

Muslim and Facebook
There is a new set of rulings published by mosques and Islamic associations around Britain which states Muslim women should delete their Facebook accounts, must not leave the house without their husband’s permission and should avoid wearing trousers.

The statements provoked anger among anti-extremism campaigners and moderate Muslims, who have spoken out against "outdated and patriarchal" attitudes. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) is facing calls to demand that affiliated institutions remove online advice that curtails the freedom of women.

It comes after the Blackburn Muslim Association, which is an affiliate of the MCB, stated women should not be able to travel further than 48 miles without a male chaperone.

Justine Greening, the International Development Secretary, criticized the advice from Blackburn Muslim Association as "disgraceful" and said that such views had "no place" in modern Britain.

Other examples include, the Central Masjid of Blackburn who posted advice called the "Dangers of Facebook" and according to the Times, claims: "Facebook has opened the doors for sin. Muslim girls and women alike have become prey to this evil."

The Croydon Mosque and Islamic Centre published a document called "Advice for the husband and wife" and says a woman "should seek her husband’s permission" when leaving the house.

It also describes modelling and acting as "immoral acts."

Dr. Sheik Howjat Ramzy, a prominent adviser to the Muslim Council, has rejected the guidance as "offensive in this day and age", while the National Secular Society described it as "medieval."
