I was asked a question today which I feel I should shed light on here.

An international journalist is writing an article on segregation in Bahrain and she wanted to pick my brain on the certain issue.

One question which stuck to my head was: Bahrain is one of the most forward looking countries in the Gulf, why is this happening now?

Frankly speaking, I really don’t know.

The first answer which came to my head was: Parliament. But then how objective am I being? It is the scapegoat we can really throw all the problems on. But then, parliament bashing is a much easier option than thinking of what is really happening to this kingdom which is small in size and burdened with problems.

Why I blame parliament is because of the following:

Prior to 2002 (the Parliament), there wasn’t a venue for those voices to be heard: (Let’s ban the Nancy Ajram concert after the Ministry of Information gave its consent/Let's not give the go-ahead for a budget for the Bahrain International Circuit while the track was being built/Let's ban Big Brother while the programme was being aired LIVE and now Let's introduce segregation at the University of Bahrain after having a co-ed university since its establishment after the merger of two colleges in 1986!)

They may have had to discuss these issues in Majlises (meeting rooms) or during Friday sermons in mosques, but such backward motions would never have spread like fire in a haystack the way they do now and attracted international attention.

No one would have listened. No one would have bowed.

This parliament is Bahrain's first in its modern history… and I wouldn’t be sorry if it was Bahrain's last!

Segregation? Oh Please! Cute guys would have to worry a lot and may also have to wear protective gear to protect their behinds.

Otherwise, they would definitely be BUTT FUCKED!

After all, the message we are getting from parliament and all those morons advocating segregation is that women are "fitna" and are a major distraction to the poor boys who cannot concentrate on their studies because of the presence of girls.

Girls should therefore cover themselves up and wear loose abayas and the hijab, to stop luring poor innocent boys into their trap.

In return, I think that should segregation ever be sanctioned (hehehehehe), boys should be protected from the over-zealous righteous men, who will sure find a way of making it legal to attack studs on sight/site!

I really don’t know what this place is coming to. Anyway, I really am in no mood. I don’t want to know. I will continue to hide in-doors.

The world isn’t missing out on much. They have Saaedi's and Maawda's legs to look at. Why would they be interested in mine?

I have a friend who's a pharmacist who tells me that the fastest selling item is KY Jelly, particularly in the Southern region and Muharraq! I wonder why that is?

Bahrain's Islamists and particularly Al Wefaq aren't embarrassment proof, and past experience shows that if there's one way to make them think twice its by shinning the light of publicity on what they're up to - witness how quiet Majeed Karimi's gone on lingerie or Murthader Bader's silence on racial segregation in Manama after journalists caught them out. They were stopped in their tracks.

So its very interesting to read that now international journalists are now looking into the whole issue of segregation at the UoB, in particular how they cover Al Wefaq/Jassim Al Saeedi's role.

On the issue of parliament, I think its important to distinguish between the MPs and the institution of parliament. Yeah, its unfortunate that a lot of these guys have been shocking, but what's the alternative to elections?

By the way, this Blog's fantastic. Many congratulations.

I love the kitty!! This blog is supposed to be silly and girly!!
It is a running theme..it will change continuously.
I wanted the sunflower..until i realised that u had taken it for the wiki!!
And the glitch with the pages has been fixed Sir!

Mahmood Al-Yousif said...

thank you thank you thank you and it's YOUR blog so to hell with what everyone thinks! although I am grateful for the fix of the pages, the sunflower is yours for sure, as I think we will change the theme of the wiki once we get more content on it (and the arabian/persian thing dies down too, I seem to be fighting on too many fronts these days and it's not of my choice!). So you're more than welcome to the sunflower, and actually that reminds me of you! So you should keep it for sure!

What do you think of the ribbon?
I think it says a lot. Search for it.
You get a prize! The wicked weekend is coming up!!

Mahmood Al-Yousif said...

nice one that... red = aids, pink = breast cancer, blue = freedom of speach. We should all be covered in ribbons to support these worthy causes...

but then we don't have aids patients in our lovely isles now do we? or is it just 2 or 3 from blood transfusions from foreign climes?

Thanks ;)
I would like to take this opportunity to blame Mahmood for distracting me by insulting Kitty.
This, in turn, has made me focus on technical aspects of the blog, forgeting my role as hostess!
Thanks for your support and encouragement!

I was searching through Blogger to see if I can find some information on breast cancer research. I stumbled on your blog, as this was not quite what I was looking for about breast cancer research. I did however read your blog and found it quite interesting, keep up the good work and hopefully I will visit it again.
