Tunisi: Amina che voleva entrare nelle Femen internata in manicomio? Timori per la sua sorte

lunedì, aprile 1st, 2013

Amina, la ragazza tunisina che voleva entrare nel gruppo delle “Femen”, è stata rinchiusa in un manicomio che pratica l’elettroshock. Da Cronachelaiche questa informazione del giornalista Pino Scaccia, ma a seguire un resoconto di Mondoweiss che invece smentisce l’internamento di Amina Tyler. Infine però Policymic conferma l’internamento. Quale è la verità?:

Amina internata in manicomio

Salvata dalla lapidazione, la ragazza tunisina condannata da una fatwa per essersi arruolata nelle “Femen” è stata rinchiusa in un ospedale dove si usa l’elettroshock.

Ricordate la storia di Amina Tyler, la studentessa tunisina vittima di una fatwa per essersi arruolata nel movimento delle “Femen”? I predicatori musulmani avevano invocato la lapidazione per blasfemia dopo che si era mostrata a seno nudo rivendicando la proprietà del proprio corpo. Per giorni di lei non si è saputo nulla. Ora sappiamo dov’è grazie alle informazioni che ci sono giunte confidenzialmente da Tunisi. Questo è il messaggio: «Amina internata nell’ospedale psichiatrico Razi Mannouba della capitale. Non c’è più il pericolo della lapidazione, ma è stata dichiarata pazza per il gesto inconsulto fatto in Paese islamico. Da paura il metodo che ad oggi adottano: elettro shock. Molti entrano per nulla ed escono folli per la vita. Un medico mio amico sta tentando di saperne di più ma è molto difficile. Peccato davvero. Se ci sono novità, ti faccio sapere».

Sembra che sia stata la stessa famiglia della ragazza, che ha solo diciannove anni, a consegnarla alla polizia. Scongiurato il rischio della morte, l’attende ora un destino forse ancora peggiore: diventare pazza. E’ la legge scellerata di tutti i regimi. Gli oppositori o comunque i nemici si uccidono oppure si dichiarano folli perché secondo la perversa tesi dell’estremismo da sana non avrebbe mai potuto commettere un atto simile. Sicuramente, più che per la foto, la condanna è arrivata per quello che ha postato su Facebook: «Il mio corpo mi appartiene e non è di nessuno» scritto in arabo sul suo corpo nudo.

Del resto gli Imam salafiti al termine di un processo religioso che in un Paese dove vige la sharia ha tutti i connotati anche legali avevano chiesto nell’ordine: la quarantena (trattandosi a loro dire di una malattia che potrebbe divenire epidemia e quindi potenzialmente coinvolgere altre ragazze), la fustigazione (dieci frustate alla schiena, magari in pubblico, per dare l’esempio) e infine la lapidazione: “finché morte non sopraggiunga”. Già, una malattia. Il morbo della libertà: pericolosissimo.

Amina Tyler’s naked activism

by  on April 1, 2013

Here’s the story of Amina Tyler, a 19-year- young woman who has brewed a storm of controversy in Tunisia. Tyler around 10 days ago posted two photos of herself topless on Facebook. The first image showed Amina with the words “F*** your morals” written across her chest. The second has the words “My body belongs to me and is not the source of anyone’s honor” written in Arabic.

Apparently, she told a Tunisian newspaper that she posted these pictures to make the voice of Tunisian women heard and stand up against oppression.

Tyler became the founder of the feminist movement FEMEN in Tunisia in February. FEMEN is a well-known activist group popular, as some readers will know, for protesting against Putin and former playboy Prime Minister Berlusconi. Amina has officially carried this movement to the Middle East.

Women played a huge part in rallying alongside their fellow male citizens to bring down the dictators ruling their nations. The main political beneficiary of this change, as we are seeing, is the rise of Islamic movements. Many are now saying that as a result of this trend the rights of women are under threat.

Rumors circulated around the web that Amina disappeared and was placed in a mental institute. A lawyer representing Tyler’s family then denied these rumors. Amina is apparently safe and back at home.

Millions of women around the Arab World are all supporters (if not participants) of protests for gender equality, especially in a countries like Tunisia where technically speaking the government in the 1950s stipulated equality of sexes. Discrimination still exists obviously, and protests that denounce an article in the draft Tunisian constitution that describes women as being complementary to men are ongoing.

The question is though, should posing completely naked and posting the picture to the general public be the way to go about any gender-equality protest? Amina evidently has a lot to say and women will stand stand by the idea that she has, but most Arab women will not agree with her methods. If she is against objectifying women posing naked is definitely NOT the right way to convey that message. This is especially true in nations where Islamic movements are gaining traction. Such acts will only become fuel to their fire. Protests that will be productive are those that encourage a moderate Islam that supports gender equality.

There is much to be done in the realm of gender equality for the entire region, but are methods like those of Amina’s the way to go?

Il sito Policymic invece dice che è stata rinchiusa in mnanicomio col consenso dei suoi genitori. Ecco:

Amina Tyler: Tunisian Girl Outrages Islamic Authority With Nude Facebook Photos

A Tunisian girl is faced with criminal charges after posting a naked photo of herself on Facebook.

“My body belongs to me, and is not a source of anyone’s honor,” stated Amina Tyler, the 19-year-old founder of the Tunisian branch of FEMEN, an international feminist organization, which started in Ukraine.

Her actions immediately elicited death threats from Adel Almi, a prominent Islamic cleric, who told the Tunisian daily, Assabah News, that this young woman, according to Islamic law, deserves between 80 and 100 lashes, but because of the seriousness of her actions, should be stoned to death.

“This young woman, for her actions, could bring misfortune and provoke epidemics and catastrophes,” said Almi, the President of Al-Jamia Al-Li-Wassatia Tawia Wal-Islah (the conservative association for public awareness and reform), who represents the voice of Shariah Law. “Her actions could be contagious and could give ideas to other women. Therefore, she must be isolated.”

As of Sunday morning, Amina Tyler has been placed in a psychiatric facility by her parents, who have disowned her, possibly along with the help of the police.

The Facebook page of her organization, FEMEN Tunisia, was hacked by Islamists: “Thanks to God we have hacked this immoral page and the best is to come,” the hackers wrote, “God willing, these dirt will disappear from Tunisia.”

Feminists respond on the internet to these events by organizing a petition to keep Amina safe onChange.org, and an International Day to Defend Amina on April 4, signed by 40 prominent artists, writers, organizations, and members of the media, including Richard Dawkins, the scientist and Atheist activist.

The Ukrainian organization, FEMEN, was founded in 2008 by Anna Hutsol, as a protest against the trafficking and sexual exploitation of Ukrainian women. The organization has branches throughout Western Europe. Using toplessness as a media tactic, they have protested a variety of issues including sex tourism, pornography, international marriage agencies, the scandals of Italian politician Silivio Berlusconi, and the lack of public toilets in Kiev. They are fiercely against the legalization of prostitution in Ukraine and demand the criminalization of prostitution in other countries around the world.
