WOMAN UNDER NON-ISLAMIC CIVILIZATIONS
Woman, thus, is greatly suffering from the misery of the modernsociety, being maltreated by man and inhumane social laws.
This hasbeen ever so since the primitive times up to the present modernmaterialistic civilization.
These man-made laws and cultures havealways viewed woman as a commercial commodity in life, a means ofpleasure, a prisoner who has no freedom and a creature who enjoys nohuman merits that have been bestowed on man.
Actually, she isconsidered a source of evil in this world, a cause of sin, and a filthfrom which one needs to purify oneself.
Historically speaking, woman has been exploited.
In the pastcivilizations like that of the Greeks and the Romans, she was deprivedof her civil rights and was subjected to maltreatment by her father,brothers and her husband who only regarded her as a heavy burden, ameans of pleasure or a slave to toil.
According to Jewish concepts, deviated from the original laws ofMoses, she was looked upon as a cause of sin.
The myth goes evenfurther, saying it was the woman who caused Adam to sin and be drivenout of paradise.
The Torah - the fabricated Torah of the Jews - says:"Woman is more bitter than death" and "the good man before God shouldavoid her".
Under this Jewish misinterpretation of the divine religion of Moses,woman is regarded as an inheritable property.
