( An extract from the article)
The fairer sex seems to be in an apparent bid to take over control. It’s happening right at our backyard with the women-only train coaches, taxis and now Malaysia’s first women’s radio station in Capital FM 88.9. Maybe it’s time for men to re-affirm who’s the boss … or not.
( In the hard copy of the this edition of The Star, besides the columnist’s photo, noted a caption in bold and red letters: ”
Ouch!! Looks like men will be kicked out of the bedroom to the kitchen.
The Obedient Wives Club should protest against such an emasculating statement”
MEN, watch out. If we are not careful, sooner or later women will take control and kick us out of the bedroom. Don’t give me that quizzical macho look! The signs are there. Women-only Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad coaches. Then women-only taxis. And now Malaysia’s first women’s radio station Capital FM 88.9. To paraphrase Helen Reddy’s song I am Woman, women are roaring “in numbers too big to ignore”.
Comments from Nur Muhammad Bulletin on the above article:
Allah has decreed:
“Men are leaders and guardians of women because God has favored some more than others and because they (i.e. men) spend out part of their wealth. In their turn, righteous women are meant to be devoted ( to Allah and her husband) and the one who guards ( her honour and whatever that must be guarded) during the absence of her husband, with Allah’s protection and help. As for those women on whose part you fear ill-will and nasty conduct, admonish them (first), (next) leave them alone in beds (and last) beat or separate them (from you). But if they obey you, then seek nothing against them. Behold, God is most High and Great. ( An-Nisa:34)
A train coach and taxis only for women are alright. Just say it is to help reduce men overpowering the ladies because of free social interactions. I ( a female ) had been knocked from behind by a male private part (within his trousers ) during hustling ( while standing) in a crowded bus.
But if the motive for this gender segregation is for women to show their authority, that is unlikely. Because, Allah has prepared during the Mahdi’s time in future, all these modern women will submit towards the male leadership. At that moment, all wives will certainly obey their husbands willingly and with pride!
