Muslim women 'banned' from Facebook
by Nicola Harley
Muslim women should delete their Facebook accounts, not wear trousers or leave the house without their husband's permission under controversial rules published by British Islamic associations.
Online advice on the conduct of Muslim women has been published by the Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham which says women should not wear trousers as they "show off the detail of their bodies", even in front of their husbands, according to the Times.
It comes after the Blackburn Muslim Association, which is an affiliate of the Muslim Council of Britain, stated women should not be able to travel further than 48 miles without a male chaperone.
