  • Muslims have a very bad attitude to homosexuality, they're very intolerant … And women. For them women are second class citizens. What we are witnessing now is a clash of civilisations, not just between states but within them.
  • Islamic apologists in the West argue furiously that child marriage has nothing to do with Islam, and that the idea that Muhammad married a child is the invention of greasy Islamophobes. In reality, few things are more abundantly attested in Islamic law than the permissibility of child marriage.

Hustmyre quote is from a non-notable source and is more relevant to Left-wing politics page. Spencer quote is irrelevant to the topic; no mention on women in Islam. Xsaorapa (talk) 10:26, 20 July 2018 (UTC)Reply

w:Draft:Hermeneutics of feminism in Islam



I came across this promising w:Draft:Hermeneutics of feminism in Islam (relating to women's rights) and myself supported the same editorially too. IMO since topic potential is vast many Reliable sources on Google scholar seem to be available hence the article needs more editorial hands for some more update and expansion along with appropriate references.

Pl. do join to update and expansion, your help will be most welcome.

Thanks and regards

That is not a reliable source and cites a Bible verse, which has nothing to do with the Quran. I think that this and all the similar pages on Islam need to be checked and cleaned due POV. Rupert Loup 15:50, 16 August 2020 (UTC)
