‘Islam is the most feminist religion’: Muslim activists fight on Live TV

Canberra: Feminist activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied who appeared on ABC’s Q&A program last Monday night defends Sharia Law with her statement “Islam as ‘the most feminist religion’.”

The 25-year-old Sudanese-born engineer and social advocate made her comment after Tasmanian independent senator Jacqui Lambie insisted that “anyone who supports Sharia Law should be deported.”

In heated clash with Lambie, Yassmin Abdel-Magied said,

“Excuse me, Islam to me is the most feminist religion, right.We got equal rights well before the Europeans. We don’t take our husbands’ last names because we ain’t their property.”

“My frustration is that people talk about Islam without knowing anything about it and they’re willing to completely negate any of my rights as a human being,” said Abdel-Magied after the ABC talk show Tony Jones’ intervention.
