Western Armies Are Heavily Recruiting Muslim Women

Recently, the UK army organized a camp for Muslim women to provide them a taste of life in the army. According to a tweet by the BBC Asian Network, the UK army is looking for more Muslim women to join.

“The Army want more Muslims, especially women, to join the forces. As it stands only a tiny fraction of the 500 Muslims are female and now, regular activity days are being held for them get a taste of what to expect.”

But was this really a taste of what to expect as a female military officer? Well, let’s look at the past 10-20 years to find out what exactly are the perks that the armed forces provide women in these liberal western nations. This is what Jane Harman wrote in an article in the Los Angeles Times on the horrific treatment of women in the US armed forces.

She wrote:

“Women serving in the U.S. military are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire in Iraq.”

Yes, you read it right. Women in the US army could face more harm from their fellow men soldiers than the enemy. Remember, these are not words of some, as liberalism would portray, “backward thinking,” “unliberated” Muslim women. These are words of a woman, born and raised in a western liberal society, who once chaired the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence. Harman’s words are based on the following data:

“41% of female veterans seen at the clinic (VA health care center) say they were victims of sexual assault while in the military, and 29% report being raped during their military service.”

If the men in the armed forces are subjugating the women to rape and sexual assaults, imagine what would they do to the women of their enemy. According to a factsheet from Veterans administration, 1 in 3 women report military sexual trauma.

It turns out that the treatment of women in the UK military is even worse. According to a parliamentary report presented in the Guardian, nearly 2 in 3 women in the UK military have faced abuse of some form.

“Almost two-thirds of women in the armed forces have experienced bullying, sexual harassment and discrimination during their career, according to a parliamentary report that says the UK military is “failing to protect” female recruits.”

No wonder the number of personnel in the UK army has been declining over the years. The number of personnel in the UK armed forces were 305,800 in 1990. As of 2020, there are 145,000 personnel serving in the British army with only 500 Muslims. That’s 0.003% of Muslims in the British army. It seems the military’s focus is more on increasing “diversity” and not addressing the cruel treatment of women in the military.

The treatment of women in the armies of these colonizers is in stark contrast to the treatment of women in Islam. Yvonne Ridley, a British journalist, was captured by Taliban in 2001. In her book, ‘In the Hands of the Taliban’ she mentions the courteous treatment of Taliban men and was amazed by their respectful behavior. And she said all this not when she was in captivity, but after she was released. And she accepted Islam.

So, the questions for Muslim women living in the UK is: Is it worth joining the UK army as a Muslim woman? Is it worth risking your honor, respect, and chastity to be maligned for the rest of your life? Is it worth living with sexual trauma for the rest of your life? And even if you manage to avoid being assaulted by a fellow soldier, you would be supporting the regimes that initiated the unjust “War on Terror.” Regimes that have bombed innocent civilian Muslim populations and yet have the audacity to not claim any responsibility for their horrid crimes.

Compare this to what Islam promises women. Women do not have a responsibility to find a job and earn money to support their family. Before marriage, this is the responsibility of their fathers and later, their husbands, to ensure that they have all the necessities of life.

According to the Holy Quran (4:34):

“Men are caretakers of women, since Allah has made some of them excel the others, and because of the wealth they have spent. So, the righteous women are obedient, (and) guard (the property and honor of their husbands) in (their) absence with the protection given by Allah. As for women of whom you fear rebellion, convince them, and leave them apart in beds, and beat them. Then, if they obey you, do not seek a way against them. Surely, Allah is the Highest, the Greatest.”

I wouldn’t be surprised if these “Muslims” are for a large part Qadiani and Shia. The number is thus probably even much smaller.


Thats true, most likely qadianis represent those who join the army. Many of them even donate their own blood to the occupiers!


Why are they looking for Muslim women specifically? This is very suspicious, maybe they’re looking to ill treat them, given their history can’t say this can’t be true

They are trying to recruit Muslims in general not only women, but obviously they want to tick-box their politically correct diversity quota so that they can show off to the world that they have a diverse inclusive workforce which includes all the different ethnicities, races, genders, disabilities, and of course 5£xual orientations from within the Muslim community just as with their diversity quota from every other community.

Even in the most secular Liberal feminist countries they make sure to gender-segregate prisons because prisons are an institution fundamentally based on male violence which can be deadly to any women who stand in the way of the violent men. Likewise, the military is also an institution fundamentally based on men being violent, so it would be wise decision to reduce harassment and molesting, if militaries also gender segregate by having a separate female army and navy and Air force who operate separately from men, in their own female bases.

Afghanistan under American hegemony also used to have the same harassment and molesting problem, but now the new Afghan rulers have resolved that problem, simply by removing the entire female component of the military! Which itself is a controversial decision because some Afghan women who wanted to serve their country militarily are now being denied the opportunity to do so.


Gender segregation is not based on “male violence” or how come toilets are segregated?
And violence is not only a male problem.
Your idea maybe okay but you mentioned the wrong reason.

Even if they made a perfectly Islamic-friendly environment for Muslims in their army which they claim they have already done (such as providing halal food, facilitating Muslims to pray 5 times daily namaz/salah on time, military chaplain imams, hijabized uniform for Muslim women, and special permission to grow full beard), it is still not right for Muslims to join them.

This is not just because of whatever foreign war they were involved in. But also for a more fundamental basic reason, the exact same reason why a citizen of China or Russia or North Korea is not allowed to join their army, i.e. For us Muslims, any Western or NonMuslim country is not “our” country which we “belong to” (country meaning the political entity ruling over the land, not the geographical land itself).

Instead, the only country that we Muslims should identify as “our own country” or the country that we are patriotic to or belong to, is the country that was founded by Prophet Muhammad PBUH in the year 622 and carried on all the way until Ataturk abolished that country in 1922, AKA the “United States of Islam” or Islamic version of the UK (United Khаlifadom).

Muslims should treat all other countries as a “foreign country” from their point of view. Muslims who are born and brought up in the west, should consider their passport Western country as their “host country” rather than their own country, and consider themselves as some kind of guest of their host country rather than being a patriotic citizen of their host country. Like how Chіnese citizens living in the US are still patriotic to Chіna rather than their host country America, which is why they can’t and don’t join the US armed forces.
