September 1, 2016: In a column published by Toronto Sun on August 30th, 2016, Tarek Fatah talks of how easily the liberals of the West can be so easily manipulated as a result of even the slightest movement by the Islamists. This was showcased by the “Burkini ban” incident that took place on 30th August, at France.
- France affected by Islamic movement
- Woman told to take off one layer of her Burkini wrap or leave the beach
- Burkinis worn by Muslim women, raising a fit. A wetsuit worn by French Catholic? Not so much.
- Double Standards or just Culture?
The “Burkini” ban in France raised a fit in the lives of Muslim women, when a middle aged Muslim woman was seen napping on the beech in a full body covered attire, in 35°Celsius, and was told to take off one layer of her Burkini wrap or leave the beach.

And Tarek Fatah raises a very crucial point here, where he says “a video of a woman being beaten by a gang of Muslim men, somewhere in Europe or North Africa, barely raised an eyebrow, and didn’t make it to the front pages of any newspaper or TV network. However, the sight of a middle-aged Muslim woman napping in full body attire, being asked to leave the beach, or take off one layer of her burkini wrap, was enough to raise cries of racism, misogyny, bigotry and every possible human rights violation in the UN Charter.”
He also talks about an image he saw on Tumblr which showed two women in almost identical full-body swimsuits, with the title:
“French Muslim in Burkini French Catholic in Wetsuit.”
Below the picture, the caption read:
“Only one will be asked to remove her swimming gear at gunpoint.”
To him, that picture raised a question – “If both swimsuits provide head-to-toe cover, why don’t these Muslim women wear the wetsuit? Why do they insist on the burkini?”

And he also answers this himself. According to him, the Sharia Culture of Islam forces their women to cover their bodies in clothing from head to toe even in modern times, for no reason except for their objective to prove their women as pious and pure and promote “slut shaming” which is showcased by the Western women or Muslim women who wear traditional beach suits or one piece, who apparently have a “loose character”.
His opinions are downright straightforward and there’s no doubt that the Muslim women are not only being oppressed by their own culture, but also being discriminated for following the ideologies and traditions of their ancestors.
