What!?!

I rarely comments on the insanity that comes out of the Muslim world. Yeah it's a cultural gap, they have different customs than we do. This story still boggles the mind and let's us know how far some Muslims have to go.

So now a woman isn't allowed to hug a man...
Photos in the Pakistani media have shown Bakhtiar being helped by a male instructor during a charity parachute jump in France last month to raise money for victims of the devastating 2005 earthquake in Pakistan. Another picture shows a woman -- apparently Bakhtiar -- hugging the instructor.

This was ''an illegitimate and forbidden act,'' the clerics said in their edict, or fatwa.

''Without any doubt, she has committed a great sin,'' the fatwa said. It declared that Muslim women must stay at home and must not venture out uncovered.
Hmmm, I must say this isn't right. Too bad that Muslim women aren't at the point where they're tired of it. It's very unfortunate.
