No laughter in Turkey? Seriously?

Post by ice cream » Wed Jul 30, 2014 5:19 pm

Arinc's controversial remarks came as part of a speech to mark the last day of Ramadan on Monday. "A man should be moral but women should be moral as well, they should know what is decent and what is not decent," he said. "She should not laugh loudly in front of all the world and should preserve her decency at all times."

But many Turkish women are doing exactly the opposite, laughing loudly in front of all the world. And now, the world is getting on board.

With all that is going on in the world, we could use a lot more laughter. What a sad, pathetic little man he is, coming up with such nonsense. Laughing is indecent, yikes the world is in trouble if anyone bought into this nonsense.

Good on the Ladies to make him look like a fool, as his statement is foolish, utter nonsense. I worry that he may try to punish those that defied his ridiculous statement.

I had seen a social media image with women laughing but I did not know what the context was for Turkey specifically. So far, this is a deputy Prime Minster providing his own opinion.

In Malaysia, non-Muslim publications cannot use Allah, the Muslim term for God, as the court ruled it could convert Muslims. http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/24/world/asi ... index.html
