    If you are a male then get back to playing video games, don't prematurely end your life.  If you are a female then your clock is ticking, I would start utilizing rishta aunties on speed dial.

    Can you provide a source for this? Veiling predate Islam and was used to distinguish between classes of women, even before Islam slave women were not allowed to veil and even faced punishments. It has been associated by high status among all Abrahamic cultures before Islam.  @Ibn al-Hussain can perhaps shed more light on Shia law, from what I understand slave women are not required to cover their hair.

    Iran's unconditional backing of Assad and involvement in Syria has really damaged Iran's reputation over the past few years.  Before the Syrian conflict Iran had a generally positive image even amongst a lot of Sunnis.  As far as Iraq is concerned, they just want to be independent while Iran understandably seeks influence.

    They are jelly that Iran is not neo colonized like the rest and not afraid to assert themselves or stand up for themselves.

    Silence is not a solution  definitely. But calling out a bad person isnt either. If a person is truly tocic, walk away, before their toxicity poisons your entire existence.

    I've been married for 8 years and you are just being a control freak.  I know this because my previous wife left me for the same reason.

    Full article:

    Mr. Putin, 66, also said Russia had "no problems with LGBT persons… but some things do appear excessive to us".
    "They claim now that children can play five or six gender roles," he continued.
    "Let everyone be happy, we have no problem with that. But this must not be allowed to overshadow the culture, traditions and traditional family values of millions of people making up the core population."

    Fully agree with this bit, someone had to say it. 
    Meanwhile our socieities in the West are pushing this fringe minority agenda to the forefront of politics, culture and society at alarming rates. And we can't even speak out against it without being labelled a phobic.

    Generally the lack of Shia women is not the issue.  The reason most men opt for Christian women is because they are perceived to be sexually loose and appropriate for temporary marriage for sexual purposes.  A Muslim woman that has a sexual past is considered impure and hence hardly any father would be okay with this arrangement, and Shia women avoid it as well due to the social stigma.  Unfortunately, a lot of Christian women fall prey to some of these temporary marriages assuming there is something permanent on the horizon but are inevitably ditched because neither the man or his family would ever accept them.
    I am speaking in generalities here in terms of the perceptions, obviously there are exceptions.

    I disagree.  It is important for the Shia community to know about this and not to hide it, in case there are people out there who have been afraid to come forward and need help.  The OP is posting this on a Shia forum not on a general forum.

    Just exercise common sense.  Do not leave women, children and dependents alone unsupervised with people you don't know really well.  As far as the religious institutions are concerned they should have similar rules in place.  For example, there should be at least a parent present during religious programs for kids.  As Muhammad Ali said, religious authorities should not be alone with vulnerable individuals for both party's interests.  There are individuals in the community who do not have families and special care should be taken to make sure they are safe when dealing with representatives of religious establishments.

    You could not because it is impossible to make such a judgement from lack of proof. This case is now different because there is claim to such a proof and we need to wait for of while to know the certainty. Saying that he is innocent without proof does not clean his image. We need to be very open in this case because if we found it is truth, then we should be the first people to condemn him. The worst people are the corrupted Scholars.

    How is it an exaggeration of facts if it is fact? He is Shia and he was arrested, the media doesn't care because to them all Muslims are the same.  Also, what are final allegations? Allegations are allegations they are not final or not final. He is arrested and facing charges, that is pretty serious.  No one has mentioned he is guilty, but police in Canada don't just arrest people facing charges willy nilly.

    Religious leaders should avoid all situations which could lead to allegations. E.g. they should not meet women in any private places.

    You are certainly permitted if you intend to keep the eyes closed from the news material mentioned at the links and blaming a school of thought instead of a person makes you happy.
