Prince Finds Islam Orderly
From Illume Magazine
Prince respects the “order” of Islamic countries.
The ‘Purple Rain’ singer believes Middle Eastern countries that dictate what their citizens can do and wear cannot just be dismissed as oppressive and wrong.
In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, Prince – who has been a Jehovah’s Witnesses since 2001 – said: “We can’t do what we want to do all the time. If you don’t have boundaries, what then?
“It’s fun being in Islamic countries, to know there’s only one religion. There’s order. You wear a burqa. There’s no choice. People are happy with that.”
When asked what he would say to Muslim women who are unhappy to be forced to wear burqas – which cover the wearer’s entire body apart from their eyes – he replied: “There are people who are unhappy with everything. There’s a dark side to everything. I don’t want to get up on a soapbox. My view of the world, you can debate that forever.”
