Maryam Namazie,naked in support of Aliaa Magda Elmahdy   Leave a comment


Maryam Namazie publishes a calendar (NSFW) in support of Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, an Egyptian atheist who pissed off the authorities by posting nude photos of herself.

The calendar is designed by SlutWalk Co-founder Toronto, Sonya JF Barnett who says: ‘I felt that women needed to stand in solidarity with Aliaa. It takes a lot of guts to do what she did, and the backlash is always expected and can quite hurtful. She needed to know that there are others like her, willing to push the envelope to express outrage.’
Others who join the ‘scream’ include mother and daughter Anne Baker and Poppy Wilson St James, teacher Luisa Batista, We are Atheism Founder Amanda Brown, atheist bloggers Greta Christina and Emily Dietle, FEMEN activist Alena Magelat, photographer Mallorie Nasrallah, actress Cleo Powell, freethinker Nina Sankari , writer Saskia Vogel, and Maja Wolna.

There are a few ways this campaign can backfire but I won’t criticize. A calendar full of naked women who aren’t morons is the sexiest thing ever.

On nudity and the calendar, Mallorie Nasrallah says: ‘When a tool of oppression can be turned in to an assertion of power, it is a beautiful thing. Nudity when celebrated harms no one, and when made shameful and barbaric harms everyone.’

Indeed. Good for them and all those involved. At the risk of missing the point or offending my mother, anyone doing a straight guy version can count me in.

You can buy a calendar or download it for free (pdf).

Maryam Namazie, chair of the Committee of Ex Muslims and the One Law For All group, describes how the enforcement of religious laws, such as Sharia Law, is an attack on the rights of women, children and gay people, non-believers and people of other religions. Secularism is the only way to protect all human rights, and it is under attack from militant faith, globally.

Atheists reject the Sharia Law as it is currently being applied in Saudi Arabia, Iran and other States of the Islamic world, and propose that Sharia Law per se negates human rights. Muslims of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community show the atheists that their premise is wrong, and that Sharia Law is NOT being applied in Muslim countries, and that on the contrary, the intelligently-made laws of the Qur’an are being abused and distorted by rulers and Islamic scholars of so-called Muslim countries. The debate was held on 8th December 2011 at University College London, and this is the recording made by Muslim Television Ahmadiyya International (for original video, go to http://www.youtube.com/user/MKAUKVideos : Ahmadi Muslims Debate Sharia Law with One Law for All (Maryam Namazie) at UCL ). Read the only reasonable view on the reality of Sharia and politics in the world of today at: http://www.alislam.org/books/shariah/…
Also, read the clear PROHIBITION, made by the Imam al-Mahdi, of armed JIHAD at this present time, here: http://www.alislam.org/library/books/…
The Imam al-Mahdi was sent by God to reform Muslims who are divided into dozens of sects and sub-sects, and to bring them back to the TRUE ISLAM in which there is:
– No extremism,
– No violence,
– No hate-preaching,
– No death threats,
– No Saint-intercession of the Sunnis,
– No Jinn-possession of the Salafis,
– No fighting,
– No superstition or irrationality, which form part of the beliefs of ALL Muslims,
– No false propaganda, e.g. that made by the enemies of the Ahmadiyya Community,
– No abrogation of Qur’anic verses, as believed by ALL Muslims
– No insulting of the Holy Wives and Companions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), as practised by Shi’ites,
– No death penalty for apostasy,
– No death penalty for adultery,
– No death penalty for homosexuality,
– No disrespect to honoured religious leaders of all faiths,
– No desecration of places of worship.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only true representative of Islam today. All its practices are derived from those of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Ahmadi Muslims are the only ones to explain the Qur’an, Sunnah and Hadith in a rational way. All other Muslims have been fooled by their Imams and ‘Ulama into holding irrational beliefs and religious practices which the Holy Prophet (pbuh) did not introduce. Everyday, Muslims around the world are suffering and even losing their lives due to the horrendous interpretations their scholars make of the Sharia. When Muslims accept the interpretation of the Imam al-Mahdi, all their human rights abuses will come to an end. It is to the true Islam that the Imam al-Mahdi has called the whole world, so that people who are not protected by their Churches, Mosques or Temples against child abuse, people who are not protected by their laws against domestic violence or economic ruin, and people whose generations are being decimated by alcoholism, sex, drugs and crime, can all find real peace and communion with the True God, the Creator of the Universe, in the haven of security and love that is the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

Tutte nude in appogio alla blogger egiziana Alia Magda Elmahdy,   Leave a comment


 

Alia Magda Elmahdy

 

Unisciti al grido e spogliati. E’ l’invito rivolto alle donne di tutto il mondo dall’attivista per i diritti umani Maryam Namazie, iraniana che ha vissuto molti anni in India Ie adesso lavora a Londra. l Il risultato è un calendario di nudi femminili ‘rivoluzionari’ realizzato in solidarietà alla blogger egiziana Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, che lo scorso novembre ha pubblicare una sua foto nuda su Facebook e Twitter come «urlo contro una società di violenza, razzismo, sessismo, violenza sessuale e ipocrisia».
Dodici donne di ogni età e di diversi Paesi hanno scelto così di farsi ritrarre senza veli con un messaggio a favore dell’uguaglianza di genere e della lotta alla discriminazione: qualcosa che da noi ricorda il movimento femminista degli anni Sessanta e Settanta e che invece è drammaticamente di attualità in altri Paesi del mondo.
Mallorie Nasrallah, una fotografa ritratta nel calendario, spiega così la sua scelta: «E’ bello quando uno strumento di oppressione viene usato come un’affermazione di potere. La nudità, se celebrata, non ferisce nessuno. Quando è resa oggetto di vergogna e barbarie ferisce chiunque».
Ne è convinta anchel’ideatrice del progetto, Maryam Namazie, una donna con una lunga esperienza in difesa delle donne alle spalle, nei paesi islamici e non solo. Portavoce dell’associazione “Equal Rights Now”, Namazie lotta contro la discriminazione in Iran, in Inghilterra e negli Stati Uniti. «Dal momento che l’islamismo, come le altre religioni, è ossessionato dal corpo delle donne, che vuole vedere velato, legato, imbavagliato» scrive sul suo blog
freethoughtblogs.com/maryamnamazie, «la nudità può da sola rompere i tabù ed è un’importante forma di resistenza».
Il calendario è stato pubblicato in omaggio all’azione di Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, che era valsa alla ragazza notorietà sui media di tutto il mondo ma anche numerose minacce di morte, soprattutto nel suo Paese. «Ho sentito che le donne dovevano alzarsi in solidarietà ad Aliaa», spiega Sonya Barnett, la grafica canadese che ha disegnato il calendario. «Ci dev’essere voluto tantissimo coraggio per fare quello che lei ha fatto, e le conseguenze potranno essere dolorose. Ho pensato che avesse bisogno di sapere che ci sono moltissime altre donne come lei, che vogliono superare i limiti imposti per denunciare un oltraggio».
Sostegno all’idea è arrivato da tutto il mondo, tra cui da un gruppo di donne iraniane che hanno posato a seno nudo per un video (
guarda) «Il nostro corpo nudo è la nostra sfida al patriarcato, alla dittatura e alla violenza» ha detto sul calendario una delle ‘modelle’, Alena Magelat «Ispiriamo le persone intelligenti; i dittatori ne hanno invece solo orrore».
