There is a lot of innacurate information out there re muslims. If such sites as this are to be used as a reference for mulims and non muslims alike who are investigating islam the info needs to be accurate. I have had a look at the above and under sunnah of wearing clothes it states Males should wear a "topee" or turban. Females must wear scarves at all times. If something in sunnah it is a recorded saying or action of the prophet (swa) so putting anything re women in this section without saying something to indicate it was sent down in the Qoran is out of place as it is not a saying or an action. Also it is not mandatory for a woman to wear a scarf 24/7 and this also needs to be addressed. Acurate informtion is essential. There is already enough incorect information out there by the not believers but to contribute to to it outselves is very irresponsible

Bengali and Bangladeshi : The Identity Debate
I am revealing a secret to you. Most people do not know the difference between Bengali and Bangladeshi identity. They are two different identities. Bangladeshi people are often confused as Bengali. They are quite different. They (Bangladeshi) have separate language with accent, history, culture and geographical demarcation. A Bangladeshi may often claim to be but not exactly a pure Bengali.

Bengali language is originally based on Calcutta (India) dialect. It is originally spoken in both bank of the Bhagirathi (lower Ganges) river, from the Farakka (Barrage) to the Sundorban (Forest) in southern West Bengal. This part of land is original Bengal from view point of linguistic geography. To be specific, the districts of Howrah, Hoogly, 24 Parganas, Burdwan, Birbhum, Bankura, Nadia, Murshidabad, Jashohar are the land of original Bengal.

Bangladeshi people do not speak Bengali language. Bangladeshi people speak Bangladeshi language. It is quite different from Bengali language. Bengali and Bangladeshi is like or more than Swish-German difference or Hindi-Punjabi difference. Bengali is considered the official language of Bangladeshi people. Though officially Bengali is considered their mother tongue, virtually they speak Bangladeshi which is far different from being Bengali.

Bangladeshi people (except Brahmans) cannot be awarded Bengali identity. Brahmans are a race who originally comes from North India. They do not fall into the Bengali-Bangladeshi classification. The Bangladeshi language, accent, intonation, culture is quite different from those of Bengali. Bangladeshi people are known in different names to different neighbouring places. Such as the Bhatia (north Bengal and Assam), Rohinga, (Burma), Banggal (Kolkata), Diku in Jharkhand, etc. They are different from being Bengali.

Normally the people of Bangladesh claim Bengali as their official mother tongue and official identity. Virtually it is their step-motherly tongue and step-fatherly identity. But due to emotional attachment of 1971 war this fact is unknown to many and kept secret.

A remarkable fact is that all the great Bengalee personalities came from this part of original Bengal area. They are Raja Rammohan, Keshab Sen, Sabarna Roy Chowdhury, Netaji Subhas, Ishwar Chandra, Bankim Chandra, Sharat Chandra, Rabindra Nath, Madhusudan, Kazi Nazrul, Bibhuti Bhushan, Tara Shankar, Bidhan Roy, etc.

Those who migrated from east-Pakistan or Bangladesh are originally Bangladeshi. We find Bangladeshi scent / odour in their body and accent. But from second generation onwards they are identified as Neo-Bengali (or Nabya Banggali). And from third generation onwards they can be considered Bengali. Therefore virtually 3 identities exist, the Bengali, Bangladeshi and Neo-Bengali. (This is a part of a research book, with academic purpose.)

For someone who is looking into Islam as a religion, and seriously considering it, why not address the 800 pound gorilla in the room and talk about this issue of taking slave women and committing rape, or how Imams seem to advocate such violence.
Doing even the most basic research suggest that these actions are right out of the Quran and Sunna.
I would have no problem with 99% of what was revealed to the Prophet, however finding a way to reconcile these issues is a big deal, or should be to anyone considering conversion to Islam.
I am reading in the news so many atrocities committed against women and children all over the world, and have seen some of it first hand in the Middle East, Africa and India in my travels. Its not about Christian versus Islam, its about Islam versus Islam and what will be done about this!
