Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin - America's Unfortunate Interfaith Couple

Posted: 24 Jul 2013 07:07 PM PDT

"Across the country, Desi moms can barely contain their glee at pointing out to their daughters how Weiner is what you get when you marry out."

For those who aren't acquainted with the term 'Desi' - it designates someone of South Asian decent. The Facebook page that carried this amusing message last night revealed a sub plot to the Weiner sex chat saga, namely that Weiner and Abedin are perhaps the highest profile interfaith couple in America and the troubles in their relationship have the potential to be used as another case in point of those issuing dire warnings about interfaith marriages.

Anthony Weiner, as you know even if you live under a rock, was exposed (ahem) Tuesday as having continued to engage in sex chatting with young ladies for over a year after he lost his congressional seat due to the last sexting scandal in 2011.

When the news emerged on Tuesday, the mayoral candidate promptly held a press conference. There, standing next to him, was his wife Huma Abedin, to whom he apologized repeatedly. Weiner told the reporters that he had asked for Abedin's forgiveness and she had given it. Abedin then spoke:

"It took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where I could forgive Anthony. It was not an easy choice in any way, but I made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage. I made a decision for me, for my son and my marriage."

After watching the press conference yesterday afternoon a secular Muslim friend of mine emailed me his reactions: "It struck me, seeing them there together, that here was a Muslim and a Jew, and how hard that might be."

After watching the press conference a couple times I have to say that my heart went out to both of them. They obviously have been through a lot and are trying to make this marriage work -- in part because of political ambition, but as Huma said, for the sake of her son, and the sake of the marriage itself.

Interfaith marriages can be difficult under any circumstances and research shows that people with different religious beliefs tend to have a slightly higher rate of divorce.

Although Weiner and Abedin appear to be more secular in their observance, which probably makes them more similar in their world view than a secular person married to an religiously observant person of the same religion, the religious tension in their marriage was revealed in one text during the original sexting scandal in 2011.

Gawker reported that Weiner complained in a text that he had never been accepted by Abedin's parents. "A lot has to do with religion,' Weiner said, '"They just believe I should be Muslim or convert... it makes for a lot of uncomfortable meetings."

Canteen In Changing Room , FACTS That You Should Know

Posted: 23 Jul 2013 10:37 AM PDT

I have visited the school just now and here are the findings :


  • The school canteen was facing problem in accommodating 350 students who go for recess at same time. This was happening since January 2013

  • The students were siting around the canteen (perimeter) as the canteen is small and could not cater all of them

  •  The HM who saw this decided to use one of the changing room which is located FEW meters RIGHT in front of the canteen. 

  • This changing room which were equipped with chairs and tables has been operating SINCE March 2013 and not recently as claimed by some blogs. This was an initiative taken by HM to avoid pupil from sitting around the canteen under hot sun.

  • Until the beginning of Ramadhan ALL students including Malays were using this room as their 'canteen'

  • There is NO..I repeat NO.. toilet located anywhere near by the changing room (currently used) . There is NO toilet located in 30 meter radius. There are only two changing rooms for male and female respectively located side by side as per pic below

  • You can argue why there is sign of ' Tandas' here.. well that is not 'tandas'. It is changing room. There is NO toilet bowl at all and if you watch closely the student is actually taking out shoe to enter the 'Tandas'.The shoes are out there..why?? Anyone who goes to toilet does that? In which school? 

  • HM decided to use one of the changing room (male) bcs it has facilities like water supply. It is also placed very near to the canteen as in few meters. The female changing room are also placed with tables and chairs but not being used at the moment. Let me repeat there is no Toilet nearby the 'canteen'. 

  • Some people asked 'Why not used classrooms or library?' The temporary room has better facilities..water...sinks... and placed just few meters in front canteen..Classrooms and library dont have all these..and located far from canteen. Since my day of schooling we dont practice eating inside classroom...
