Islamic Beauty

Everyone knows that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But, Islamics don’t think that anyone should behold the beauty of a Muslim girl. Read about Ayten Ahmet, who wants to become Miss Teen Australia:

A MELBOURNE Muslim girl condemned by Islamic leaders for entering a beauty pageant has defied protests to be shortlisted for the Victorian final.

Ayten Ahmet, 16, advanced to the top 26 of Miss Teen Australia yesterday despite an outcry from some of Victoria's senior Muslims.
You can guess which picture is Ayten.

Perhaps if Ayten were to dress as the ladies in the other picture, she might be acceptable to the religious police. A friend of mine likes the one on the right because he says that she has “pretty legs.” I like the one in the middle because she has a pretty face. Come to think of it, maybe Ayten is in the latter photo and we just don’t know it. For that matter, how do we know they are actually females under those garbs?
