Topic info in this article[edit]

I've been working on editing the article, and in the process have been questioning the amount of content about issues (Sharia law, female genital mutilation, etc.) that is, or should be, covered in the main article. I'm not quite sure why the information is here.

Does anyone have an opinion about whether or not this material should be included?--CaroleHenson (talk) 03:34, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

This can be considered closed. Someone came along and finished the work on the article. Great job!--01:49, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

POV[edit]

  • This article relies extensively on biased anti-Muslim sources with overt political agendas.
  • The abuses that AHA works on, most notably are culturally based, with no basis in original Islam. Shari'a is a red herring.
  • Even where facts are stated about Qur'anic teachings, they are taken entirely out of context. For example, the complaint that daughters inherit only half as much as sons takes no note of other essential facts. For example, under other religions of that time, almost down to our own day, daughters inherited nothing, and women could not own property.
  • We need to add a Controversy or Criticism section.

From the AHA Web site

Ayaan urges policymakers to banish wishful thinking about Islamism. In a contribution to the Financial Times, she writes: “It is time to abandon the overconfident assumption that there is a moderate mainstream in the Arab world.” — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cherlin (talkcontribs) 23:38, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Hardly a serious Wikipedia article in this form[edit]

As this article largely consists of extensive (and unmarked) quotations from its subject's website, I think it should either be thoroughly rewritten, or be completely deleted. Hereticus obstinatus (talk) 19:37, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion: Move referenced info into appropriate articles and rework what's left.[edit]

I probably won't be able to do this myself, so all I can do is suggest this here.
