Detroit School Sponsors “Muslim Safe Space”

In celebration of “traditional” Muslim culture, a Detroit high school recently hosted a girls-only prom for girls who would otherwise be prohibited by their ultraconservative Muslim families from going to the regular dance.

The Hamtramck High School event — called “Princess Prom” and held on May 6 — has been in place since 2012, when a group of five Muslim girls wanted a “safe space” prom, according to Heat Street.

The prom featured a strict “no boys” and “no cellphones” policy in order to allow Muslim girls — who normally are required to cover up with a hijab — to let their hair down and dress “American” in a private atmosphere.

Muslim girls and women from ultraconservative backgrounds are traditionally not allowed to expose their hair in public, among many other strict religious prohibitions for women.

The cellphone ban aimed to prevent photos of the girls with their hair displayed from being posted on social media platforms, such as Instagram and Facebook.

Attendees were able to dress up in “extravagant gowns, shiny stilettos and flashy makeup and hair styles,” particularly the more “Americanized” girls, according to MLive.

  1. If muslims wanted their sharia law in place why did they come to our shores? It was to take over and its not working. Its time to get out now or die. They started it and by god we will put them down in a hole where they belong. Obama is gone from here and theres a bounty out for him. There is no living with muslims.
