"Show me the face you had before your parents were born"
An Inquiry into The Mystery, which cannot be organized into a knowable form.
Will there ever be a day when hundreds of millions of women are not suffering under Islamic gender apartheid? Will there ever be a day when hundreds of millions of children are not brainwashed into believing superstitions, for fear of burning in hell when they die?
