What lay beneath the niqab sent an Arab ambassor running for the hills

Yet another reason for banning Islamic facial coverings surfaced this week after an Arabic ambassador to Dubai discovered to his horror that the woman he married was cross-eyed and had facial hair.

Always look under the hood before signing a contract

According the BBC, the woman had worn a niqab on the few occasions the couple had met.

The envoy, who has not been identified, told a Sharia court her mother had tricked him by showing him pictures of the bride’s sister.

He only discovered the deception when he lifted the woman’s veil to kiss her.

The court had annulled the marriage contract but rejected his compensation claim of $130,000 (£83,000) for gifts he had lavished on his bride.

    If I remember correctly, not too long ago a woman in Egypt filed for divorce after her husband had tried to take a peek under her veil after they’d been married for several decades. The ambassador and his marriage would have been okay if he had been less curious.

    …I think there are more problems in that marriage than her looks.

    Seriously, get married then divorced because she’s not hot? That’s stupid even without the niqab part.

    I just love this story. Well done, ex-mother-in-law. After all it is the men (mostly) who insist on women wearing the face curtain.

    At least we know that these Women will not be wearing “Deceptive Bra’s” to support Satan’s filthy Pillows.

    “A hardline Islamist group in Somalia has begun publicly whipping women for wearing bras that they claim violate Islam as they are ‘deceptive’.

    The insurgent group Al Shabaab has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to round up any women who appear to have a firm bust, residents claimed yesterday.

    The women are then inspected to see if the firmness is natural, or if it is the result of wearing a bra.

    If they are found wearing a bra, they are ordered to remove it and shake their breasts, residents said”.

    What a hoot. Apparently Allah hates women’s exposed faces more than he hates divorce, for this guy had no compunction about dumping his bride whereas he wouldn’t dare take a peek under her veil before the wedding.

    It could have been worse, imagine he lifted the veil and found a massive set of hairy balls and a willy swinging around, who would the court fine then?? 😛

    Try before you buy.
    That’s my motto.

    Poor sod, It’s false advertising I tell you!

    btw BarryD you’ve repeated the last sentence of the article.

    it’s his own fault. I bet he’d never buy a second hand car without checking under the hood first. If they are going to buy and sell women like cars then sharia law needs a ‘sold as seen’ clause added

  10. CybrgnX says:

    Sari-Ass Law does not say the wife has to be HOT. And actually punishes any woman trying to be HOT (ie wear bra).
    The court should have asked only ONE question – Is she a virgin?
    If yes then to hell with the schite for brains islamic male…
    He gets NOTHING.
    But then I think one of their stupid rules is a man can do anything.

    Ha Ha, let’s all enjoy a good gloat as their stupid rules blow up in one of their stupid faces.

  12. barriejohn says:

    @Stonyground: “blowing up in their faces” could prove a rather unfortunate choice of phrase there!

  13. Smith says:

    @Talitha: Your post is as credible as your reference!

    @all: Shariah allows, infact recommends, men to have a ‘look’ at ‘her’, before making decisions.

  14. Heather Flight says:

    You mean to tell me he married her without ever taking off her cover? She could have been a fella or anything. He never took the cover off? She might have had a big cock!
