Appreciation of beauty transcends most things, even religious taboos.
My hijabi sister who disapproves of most things on telly for being too obscene cannot help but appreciate beauty when she sees it – even it happens to be of male variety. My sister was surfing through the tv channels and stopped on one showing Travie McCoy’s Stereo hearts featuring Adam Levine. After watching the whole song, she switched off the telly, threw the remote on the sofa and left the room saying, “I wasted good 3 and a half minute waiting of one decent shot of Adam Levine and there was none. Why would anyone want to watch the video if there are just 2 frames of Adam Levine and that too fully clothed.”
I was quietly watching it all and have now come to the conclusion that my overtly religious hijabi sister may frown upon romantic scenes between Sadia Imam and Humayun Saeed, but Adam Levine’s bare torso will make her forget her standards of fuhashi and how awesome is that.
What do my other hijabi sisters think? If super fit beautiful men agree to flaunt it, would they let go of their inhibitions?
PS: Trying not to blog about what happened in the Supreme Court today because if I write what I feel like writing, I will probably be hauled in for contempt of court. I have been told that even “Chaudhry Iftekhar Hai hai” can be considered Tauheen-e-adalat.
PPS: I also feel vindicated for the 2973 time that I did not support the restoration of judiciary movement back in 2007 because I was smart enough to see through the clutter for what it was – power struggle between two men, one in khakis and the other in black robes.
PPPS: I may have gone overboard with the pictures but hey, its the weekend and the festive season – enjoy.
