how incredibly disingenuous to make out that bangladesh is 'the muslim world', when hindu india, right next door to it, has an even worse set of statistics for sex crimes and gender inequality. it's an issue with south asia generally, which is to say it's an issue with the developing world. this is not a 'muslim problem'. many muslim countries – as you well know – are extremely puritanical about sexual relations and any sort of public cat-calling.
the fact a guy was there too and they were staring also weakens the argument that it's some 'predatory' or 'sexually problematic' muslim culture. they are rich tourists dressed in a western way on a beach in a shit-poor part of the world. no shit that people stare. you will get stared at in china or gambia too. add that to the fact that the population density and lifestyle in bangladesh is very
different to the western norm: of course locals don't find it strange to hang around in huge groups on the beach. have you seen a street scene in dhaka?
if this girl wanted a remote beach island with polite (that is, subservient) locals who know not to stare at the wealthy tourists, she should have paid for the seychelles. instead she got bangladesh, a place whose GDP/capita is $1800. that's lower than angola and the republic of congo.
i think the more interesting question is why you constantly want to fight a vainglorious culture war against islam from the frontlines of new jersey. isn't it all, i don't know, a little 2004 and passé
? you're pulling out of your two-decades-long embarrassments now, you can all start forgetting about bad muslims.
