(US) When she isn't singing songs, US pop star Alicia Keys is a philanthropist and human rights activist. On
the day after Donald Trump's 2017 inauguration, Keys protested during the
Women's March on Washington. She was one of the key speakers, and she spoke to
the crowd and said:
"We will not allow our bodies to be owned and controlled by men in government - or men anywhere, for that matter, we want the best for all Americans. No hate, no bigotry, no Muslim registry. We value education, health care, equality."
@aliciakeys @DiaryOf_Thought If you lived in a niqab-wearing society, and showed that leg, you'd be severly beaten. Signed, a Muslim woman.— SHIREEN QUDOSI (@ShireenQudosi) 28 March 2017
@aliciakeys @DiaryOf_Thought You do Muslim women ZERO favors when you push a cloth terrorists and fundamentalists have forced women to wear— SHIREEN QUDOSI (@ShireenQudosi) 28 March 2017
data-lang="en-gb">Myself as an Apostate from Islam simply cannot understand how so many do-gooders subscribe to this notion that 'Islam' is a peaceful religion and affords equality to women. It doesn't and if anybody wants to prove me wrong, please point me in the direction of any Islamic country in the world which does.
@aliciakeys @DiaryOf_Thought Why fundamentalist Muslims force niqab: our entire worth boils down to our sexuality. You just promoted that!— SHIREEN QUDOSI (@ShireenQudosi) 28 March 2017
