While I respect Frida Ghitis' intent to protect women's rights universally, her efforts are erroneously geared toward the Muslim world ("A Tragic Fire Unveils Saudi Arabia's Misogyny," Commentary, March 25). Muslim women are proud of their religion and their countries. Yet for some reason, some women of the West cannot get over the fact that these women cover their bodies instead of proudly flaunting their cleavage for the public.
Let us be reminded that the tragedy is the deaths of these young girls and not who impeded their rescue. Numerous Saudi newspapers have reported that the initial report about the "tragic" actions of the religious police was baseless. Yet these ill-intended attempts to shed negative light upon them has been a frequently used tactic by opponents of Islamic law.
