Muslim Fanatics Furious Over German Muslim Playgirl

Topics: Understanding Islam

Sila says she subordinated herself to various societal constraints for years, and the Playboy photo shoot was a total act of liberation. A Muslim kebab shop owner, asked on German TV what he would do if Sila were his daughter, he replied: "I would kill her. I really mean that. That doesn't fit with my culture."

From The Sun: Fanatics' fury at Muslim Playgirl:

Sila Sahin has been branded a "whore" and a "western slut" after appearing topless on the cover of the German edition of the men's magazine.

And Islamic fanatics have posted threatening internet messages.

Sila, raised in Germany by conservative Turkish parents, says she fears being "spat at" and "shamed".

Her parents are said to have reacted with "horror" at the 12-page coverage, and her mother has apparently cut off all contact.

Sila, 25 - star of German soap Good Times, Bad Times - claimed the shoot was a reaction to the "slavery" of her youth.

She added: "What I want to say with these photos is, 'Girls, we don't have to live according to the rules imposed upon us'.

[...] The Islamic Community of Germany has called for a boycott of Sila.

About three million Muslim immigrants live in Germany, which has seen numerous honour killings in recent years by fanatical husbands, fathers and brothers.

In 2009, an asylum seeker was sentenced to life after killing his "too independent" German wife.

One police intelligence officer said of Sila: "I think what she did was either very brave, or very stupid.She will be double-locking her door at night for a long time to come."

This is clearly a very brave woman, it's the fanatical Islamic culture that "acts stupidly" when they commit violence against women and place so many restrictions on them.
