Must suck to have religion run your country.

Completely absurd. Muslims are so damn severe, but for what?

Spencer Control 12/15/11 12:09 PM

So not punk.

MelissaMDaniels 12/15/11 12:33 PM

That's complete fucked up. What's the threat, exactly? How does a hairstyle determine a moral path?

Anyone who has not read the book or seen the documentary should definitely check out Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam. It's an interesting documentary and high lights some of major struggle between Islam and the punk community.
