Naughty Niqabis on the Olympics

Eiynah (“Nice Mangos”) is an ex-Muslim and graphic artist (twitter feed here, podcasts here, website here, click “continue”), who occasionally produces a series called “Naughty Niqabis”. (I’ve written about Eiynah previously.) Her strip resembles Jesus and Mo, but features just two women in niqabs (and burquas). Here’s the latest strip, which deals with the overly adulated Muslim-American fencer, Ibthjad Muhammad.

Like all Muslim reformers, Eiynah has been repeatedly threatened, and so keeps her real identity under wraps. After all, producing cartoons like the above is a capital offense to some Islamists.

    Big fan of Eiynah. She produces a podcast entitled Polite Conversations in addition to her aforementioned activities.

      I’m a big fan of Eiynah too. She’s also written a children’s book called ‘My Chacha (?spelling – uncle) is Gay’.

      “Naughty niqabis? I saw the headline and thought that must be a Muslim pr0n site.”

      I suspect the similarity to a porn site name wasn’t unintentional.

        On a similar note, I know they are the two character’s eyes but I see them now as something else. There is no hope for me!
        Also intentional?
