Open Letter to JI Youth Islamabad

Back at it again with the salty roast posts. I'm so sorry guys, but what can I say. If something's on my mind, it will keep on circulating in my thoughts until it finally gets out in some sort of way. Let me start this post off by giving you some context.

On a fine Saturday, the 11th of February 2017, there was an event organized by JI (Jamaat Islami) Youth about "Haya Day". You must have even seen the pamphlet I shared on Instagram. Haya is often taken to mean modesty, which is true pretty much, however the pure meaning of Haya comes from Hayat which means the life. So Haya is extrapolated to mean modesty in every aspect of your life, from dressing, to manners, to... whatever else.

I thought this event was going to be fun cause it seemed like it was organized for girls and there would be refreshments and lots of interesting youth things. Boy, oh boy, was I proven wrong. Before I continue, I would like to make it clear that this is my blog. I will not take down posts unless I want to. Do not pressure me to remove this post. I would have told JI this personally (I wrote A LOT on their feedback forms) and I would have commented essays on their facebook page- if they had a facebook page. Seriously? This is the 21st century. You want to address the modern youth, but with your old school ways.

That's just asking for Kanra to dish salt out.
