Very interesting video shows wide open prostitution in a Muslim country, Pakistan. A brothel is open for 2 hours in the city of Lahore every evening, with bribed cops looking the other way. The women all say that they are still Muslims, and they go together to a local Muslim mosque or shrine where they pray and petition Allah to be relieved of their sins. The praying, the petitioning to Allah for forgiveness and the use of the word “shrine” imply a Sufi overlay to these women’s Islam.
The women look very much like Indian people. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I would think that they were Indian Hindus. There does not seem to be much physical difference between Pakistanis and Indians, though Pakistanis like to think so. I knew a Pakistani woman once who hated Indians. I saw her on cam once, and I told her that she looked like an Indian. She got pretty upset at that. “No I don’t! I don’t look like an Indian! We don’t look like Indians! We are not Indians!”
This same woman told me that there was a ton of prostitution in Pakistan, even in smaller cities and all the way down to small towns and even villages. She basically said about every village had some of this going on. I was stunned to say the least.
The fact that there is open prostitution in Pakistan makes me think once again what a “Hinduized” form of Islam must be practiced in that country. The truth is that in much of the Muslim world, there is not a heck of a lot of prostitution, certainly not open prostitution. If there is a lot of open prostitution in a Muslim country, one legitimately wonders what sort of accretions have crept in to the syncretistic or schismatic form of Islam practiced there.
