Muslim fury after bikini model claimed to be Pakistan's entry
Daily Mail ^ | September 7, 2006

Posted on 09/08/2006 9:35:06 AM PDT by West Coast Conservative

A prize winning bikini contest model who claimed she was the Pakistani representative has sparked outrage in the predominantly Muslim country.

Stunning Mariyah Moten, 22, won the 'Best in Media' title - for being the most photographed and interviewed contestant - at the pageant in the Chinese resort of Beihai.

But furious Pakistani authorities say she did not have permission to represent the country, where many women only go out in public covered in a veil.

They are now threatening the model, who grew up in Pakistan but holds a US passport after she moved there eight years ago, with restrictions on entering her homeland.

"We have asked our missions in Washington and Beijing to investigate this because it is against our policy, culture and religion," senior Culture Ministry official Abdul Hafeez Chaudhry said.

"She is an American passport holder. She is an American national of Pakistani origin, so how did she get entry as a Pakistani?"

Moten, a student of hotel management at the University of Houston, was born and brought up in the Pakistani city of Karachi.

Mr Chaudhry said Pakistan - which does not hold beauty contests - might take the issue up with China, depending on the result of the investigation.

He also said the government might withdraw from Moten special privileges offered to people of Pakistani descent such as visa-free travel to Pakistan.

I hope that she has security. What a shame. If the report is true, though, she should have gotten permission to enter as a Pakistani. I don't understand how, though, she could have done this without it. But I don't udnerstand how these things operate.

Ohmigawd! She won't be able to vist that backward, f***ed-by-islam sh**hole, where most women aren't even treated as well as the local beasts of burden? What a punishment!

Arabs are the worst lovers in the world - it's why they're threatened by any form of sexuality that's not brutish. Ever wonder why they have to repress women like they do? It's because women would leave them if they had the freedom to leave. Arab men are inadequate. Plain and simply inadequate.

Hi Twigs-

Why should she get "permission" to enter as a Pakistani if that was where she was raised? I could lobby all I want to be the American entry, but it doesn't mean I'll get the nod to be the final contestant.

Well-put! Being "punished" with exclusion from Pakistan is quite an oxymoron.

Those wacky muslims, they were born "furious" and seem cursed to forever remain so.

Do they even have a concept of happiness?

Wouldn't she be representing the country? Shouldn't they have input? But really, I'm on her side. I fear she's in real danger now. These people do not seem to understand the dangers inherent in their own culture. By aligning with Pakistan, she's really not in Kansas any more.

It's a learnable skill...if their cult would allow them to discuss the subject.

Hapiness on this earth is forbidden. No joy. No sex. No music. No dancing. No laughter. No forgiveness.
Only a lifetime of sore knees worshipping a false prophet and a false god. Then you die & find out it was all for nothing.
No wonder these knuckle-dragging troglodytes are pissed off at the world.

just a tiny point of clarification: they get on their knees, point their arses to the East, and worship a false god, while getting some bad nose hits of gas and smelly dirty feet.

I've often wondered about this as well. I think that it's because their egos are so fragile that the thought of a woman leaving them is intolerable. The whole burqa thing is just so they never ever have to compete with other men for a woman. While I take it as a point of pride to be seen in public with my attractive wife, the Arab/Muslim mentality sees only the threat of their women finding someone better than they are. The thought of a non-Muslim taking one of their women must send them right off the deep end. SICK!
