A lot of Afghan women, like the beautiful actress above, are trying to break out of their religious prison but their shariaist society makes it extremely difficult (like this unfortunate actress). After all, this is just a small part of the mindset they’re living under:
“Allah permits you to shut them (women) in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves.
“If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; if they testify, confine them to houses until death [by starvation] claims them.”
“The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”
“In hell I saw women hanging by their breasts. They had fathered bastards.”
“And for those who launch a charge against their wives, accusing them, but have no witnesses or evidence, except themselves; let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies, (swearing four times) by Allah that he is the one speaking the truth.”
These quotes were collected from here (Bare Naked Islam). Now of course you can find very similar things in the Old Testament, the difference being that even Orthodox Jews of the Torah and Christians today have long since moved on from acting on such monstrous beliefs. More quotes here.
