Questions to Think About

Brian Mann of North Country public radio has a provocative piece today on Morning Edition. The piece explores what happens when traditional values collide. Mann went to Toronto, where, in reporting for this piece, he spoke with Ally Hindy, a self-described fundamentalist Imam who heads the Salahadin Islamic Center.

Mann: Hindy also says many basic Canadian values are sinful — including the notion that women should be free to make choices independent of their fathers and husbands.
Hindy: If she wants to remove the hijab or live by herself, I can't force you. But you're going to meet your God, soon. This is judgment day.

How to reconcile those points of view?
