disrespected
1 September 2019 | by muttaki-25464See all my reviews

I feel like this movie disrespects the culture of Islam. like i don't really have a problem with people becoming burlesque. But having a Muslim female in this while showing that she is Islamic is quiet disrespectful. like it wasn't necessary for her to choose between her faith and her job.

very disturbed
