British Muslim Miss Universe Hopeful Shanna Bukhari Receives A Death Threat

A while back I touched upon Muslima Shanna Bukhari, and her aspirations of representing GB in the meat market that masquerades as a Miss Universe contest.

The Akh has no issue with her particularly entering a meat market competition.

What I have a problem with is that she states:

“This is my passion and I want others to follow my example”

I’m sorry for being the morality police here, but for someone who has a university degree, getting your kit off isn’t the most empowering of choices, nor is it one that should be promoted to impressionable girls, the way in which the Guardian of all papers have tried to spin into a “Us V Them” narrative, complete with madcap Muslims giving Shanna death threats;

“One Facebook message calls her a “dirty Muslim” and asks why she is representing Britain “when you don’t even fucking belong here”. Bukhari said: “I actually replied to him in a very calm manner because I’m not one to retaliate, my family taught me to rationalise rather than react. Then I thought ‘why can’t I represent Britain?’ I was born here and am proud to be British. My parents are from Pakistan but I am not going to represent Pakistan as this is my country.”

This isn’t an integration issue, but one in how far people are willing to assimilate.

I have no issues with wearing the “British Muslim” badge, it doesn’t mean that to prove how British I am, I have to get steaming drunk on a Friday night and follow it up with a bout of vomiting and drunken violence….which the “British Lads” culture (or lack of culture) promotes.

Chances are the promoters were well aware of the controversy factor and the free publicity it would create for their sordid little event by having a Muslima involved.

I’m sure this will run and run….judging by the sheer number of people who are searching for this topic.

    Shame on you for not condemning the death threats. Also, ‘getting your kit off’ is actually rather empowering for a woman. She’s exploiting the men who in other, less civilized cultures, would be oppressing her and not even allowing her the right to do it.

    And I’m sorry but yes, this is an integration issue. A culture that doesn’t allow women to be assertive and do as they please with their own body is at odds with our own, and shouldn’t be tolerated.

    Why are you saying ‘shame on you for not condemning the death threats’

    There were NO death threats.

    This is all publicity nonsense.

      I’m not going to get into an argument about whether there were or were not any death threats, partly because they could have been removed and partly because it’s totally irrelevant. The article assumes that there HAVE been, so why was there no condemnation? Why on Earth would the writer focus on her backward morality toward nudity and female empowerment instead of the fact (or presumption) that a girl’s life has been threatened? An indication I suspect of a morality born of scripture rather than thought.

      Let’s hope it doesn’t take this progressive and liberal society as long to water down Islam as it did Christianity, another bronze-age mythology.

      • Ayeesha

        The original Guardian article mentioned ONE death threat. The person who – allegedly – made the death threat was then interviewed for the blogspot linked to before. Thus: no death threats.

        You ask why was there no condemnation. From whom? Bukhari is someone who is attempting to lead Muslim women away from Islam. I suspect – but do not know – that such an action in Islam is likely to lead to ‘severe punishments’. Thus it would not be that unusual if she really DID have such threats. That’s the key. Whether she is having an affair with a 42 year old married man, whether she drinks alcohol (both of which have been claimed – google it ) is not so important. It’s her actions in trying to lead people from Islam that are important – especially as one poster refers to her as a ‘female prophet’.

        To the non-Muslim then her deceitful actions in manipulating the press to garner votes is of more interest. ‘Muslim in a bikini’ -big deal. ‘Muslim getting or giving death threats’ – nothing much new then either.

        Spot the typo!!! Mr or Mrs KKK!!! Just another uneducated Islamophobe who feels so ‘liberated’ under the stealth dictatorship that is the so-called democratic world. A brainwashed imbecile who is part of the zombie nation of slaves to depravity. If, these specimen choose to damn themselves eternally by disbelieving, why do they feel it necessary to be so against the believers? And it obviously doesnt have a clue about history as christianity came well after the bronze age. This KKK creature is clearly amoral and can’t stand it when people have standards and are brave enough to defend them and is from Soddom and Gomorrah times. Worst still, it could be of muslim background, as there are plenty of enemies within.

    So condemnation is only warranted when disgraceful behaviour is ‘new’? That’s a strange criteria, one I haven’t heard before. I don’t buy your reasoning behind why death threats would be unlikely either, it’s not like the relatively ambiguous rules of scripture have never lead to horrible acts before, in fact it’s rather prone to it.

    I agree however that leading people from Islam is important, and religion in general. I wish more were doing it.

  8. Ayeesha

    I was unaware she had ‘behaved disgracefully’ before. Please provide further information. If she hasn’t then her current behaviour is indeed ‘new’.

    I did not give reasoning why death threats would be unlikely. So your ‘not buying it’ is a falsehood. I told you that the death threat (singular) NEVER HAPPENED. Go to the shannabukhari blog and you’ll see all the reasoning.

    When judging ‘leading’ it is important to assess where these people are being lead to. Many would say her current behaviour is leading her to hell.
    In Libya, for example, the coalition is ‘leading’ the rebels in the attack against Gaddaffi. Gadaffi is anti Al-Quaeda. Many of the rebels support Al-Quaeda. Therefore the coalition is now supporting Al-Quaeda.

    See how it is possible to manipulate people!

    Have you people seen a pearl? What is so special in it? Why is it so valuable?
    It is found deep inside the sea, covered and protected inside a shell. If it was spread all over the land no one would ever value it.
    Dear people women are like pearls. Her beauty is some thing which cannot be compared to anything in the world. It has to be covered and protected not exposed. May Allah guide you in the right path.
    Dear sister you are beautiful. Thank Allah for creating you perfectly while he has made so many people handicapped. Islam does not enforce strict rules on anyone. It is a guidance for the intelligent people. Fear Allah, the creator and sustainer of the universe.

    Salaams All,
    This girl minus the make up is just your everyday non-descript bore who craves attention more than a smackhead craves his poison. Nothing to do with jealousy. The fact is this, she is a corrupt hypocrite who herself is using Islam to create publicity for herself, knowing full well what she is doing goes against what ALLAH has prescribed for us as women. There are many really beautiful girls out there, who have an even more attractive quality that this fame hungry whore can ever have and that is modesty. Only the deluded, egotistical narcissists like her need to flash their flesh. She doesn’t look Muslim anyway, even though it’s more important what we are like on the inside, she doesn’t have the appearance of a Muslim and looks like your average coconut kabbadi- ( not the ‘sport’ but slang for crappy SE asians!!!)

    WHATEVER SHE IS DOING DOESN’T SUIT ANY GOOD MUSLIM GIRL BUT IN THE NAME OF RELIGION WHY THE MALES DOMINTATION OF OUR SOCIETY/RELIGION SUDDENLY TRY TO BE SO VIOLENT AND ABUSIVE, AS A MUSLIM WE BELIEVE THAT WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR ACTIONS ONLY TO ALMIGHTY ALLAH (SWT) AND NOT TO ANY HUMAN BEING IRRESPECTIVE TO THEIR RELIGION. WHATEVER SHE IS DOING GOOD OR BAD SHE’LL BE RECEIVING THE RESULTS ACCORDINGLY ONLY BY HIM TO WHOM WE ALL BELONG. WE SHOULD BE ONLY CONCERNED BY OUR OWN DEEDS THAT IS IT.
