Re: Why Irshad Manji, not Tawakkol Kamran, is media darling
Jalaluddin S. Hussain
I completely agree with Dr. Elmasry that both these women, Tawakkol Kamran and Asma Mahfouz, were ignored by the Western media, because they led their respective countries, Yemen and Egypt, towards "dignity, democracy, liberty and social justice".
These patriotic, and truly revolutionary women, do not appeal to a greater part of the Western media because clearly they do not want Muslim women to be shown in a favourable light!
