Women.. And that’s all I know..
Recently, whilst travelling through New Zealand I was chatting with a friendly taxi driver whom was from Pakistan.
I asked, are you mostly Hindu there?
He explained.. No, most certainly this is not the case. As he went on and on with a mumbling about Islamic culture I stared out the window wondering why Auckland hasn’t got a proper road to the city.
It was amazing how dated and old it looked in Auckland..
As the minutes rolled by the noise of the taxi driver slowly started to come back into my mind. I said to him something to the effect of – why do the women where the scarf, this mustn’t help with integration with the west, when you arrive here?
After some more mumbling and staring out of the window something stood out like a chisel in my mind.. He said, openly – this is our way of showing that the women belongs to the man and that we own them.
.. and that’s all I know..
