* Nothing to do with Islam, of course! Ask Irfan Yusuf, ‘White Ribbon Ambassador’- our very own indefatigable champion of human rights and equality for women, right Yusuf? Â Your comment would be most appreciated!

An 11-year-old girl has been set on fire by a relative in India’s northern city of Jaipur for wearing lipstick and being inappropriately dressed.
Police say the girl suffered burns over 90 per cent of her body and her chances of survival are bleak.
They’ve arrested her great uncle who allegedly poured kerosene on the girl and set her alight yesterday.
Investigators say the 55-year-old man, a conservative Muslim, told the police he was enraged at the girl wearing lipstick and being scantily dressed.
