insulting
4 May 2015 | by Anas-lvSee all my reviews

This film insulting Muslim women !! And insulting Iraqi women !! It seems that the aim is to tarnish the image of Islamic headscarf! Those who made the film, Are they from the first world countries, as they say ?! Where is the science and knowledge that they claim! Before you talk about the habits and traditions of others, you should learn it first and look out for it in the books then, do what your conscience dictates you! Any Arab Muslim woman will not do anything like the fake personalty in this film, She will never wear the headscarf in this way if she want to wear short pants and reveal her arms until the shoulders! this film reflect your naivety and silliness! it's disgusting
