Representing Oman

Many represent Oman in something to be proud of, be it our national team, tennis players, musicians and the list goes on and on... but this way?

I seriously find this annoying and so downgrading, insulting and offending to Oman and its people..Pictures speak a thousand words..


What would your view be on an Omani who appears on TV modeling some Bikinis and other revealing dresses?

This is the triumph of idiocy on all levels. Just remember that in this insane world we currently inhabit, to even bring attention to the fact that what this woman is doing is wrong is to bring the fury of everyone down upon you. You are not allowed to judge, nor comment on stupidity, much less condemn an action as wrong. I expect much more of this in the future.

If you are going to post this woman's picture and downgrade her by insinuation, you should at least fully explain what she has done that is so wrong and to outline your view of why it is wrong. From the picture, all we can see is a head, neck and some heavy make-up. That is nothing new. Even without providing pictures you can explain what the show on LBC is that has you so offended you and why. Still, I must say that I do not see how even the wearing of bikinis and the modeling of revealing dresses can downgrade the entirety of Oman. Oman is a country with much to be proud of. No one woman can blacken that. Furthermore, you should emphasize that, while this Omani woman has (possibly) chosen to dress provocatively on TV, the vast majority of other Omani women choose to dress onservatively.... Or do they choose that? If you insist that women must dress according to your standards, then you are negating their positive choice to abide by the cultural norms that you promote. So, would you rather have a community that is forced to dress in a certain way but does not agree with the beliefs or norms that underlie that dress, or would you rather have a community that chooses freely to abide by a collectively agreed on set of norms, with a few outliers who have the freedom to dress against your wishes on LBC? How can one woman on LBC degrade the hundreds of thousands of Omani women who choose to dress conservatively? For that matter, does honor really rest on dress? Are there not people who dress conservatively but live in total contradiction to your morals? And may there be some who dress freely but live morally correct lives? I believe it is simplistic moralism like yours that downgrade Oman.

We are quick to denounce the fundamentalist goat beard terrorist as not representing Islam or a single nation, so why do people get all in a fit when its the other side of the spectrum. She is representing herself and a minority. As an Omani women, I say more power to you Juhaina. I second Leo American’s post.

She does not represent the country you idiot, she represents herself as a citizen from the country.

How shallow of you though.

I think you are allowed to "judge, nor comment on stupidity, much less condemn an action as wrong."
Its free speech and you're allowed an opinion. Just don't be threatening any violence now... And remember, people are free to disagree with it.

I think this news is awesome, and would certainly like to see a lot more of Juhaina's portfolio.

An Omani woman, making it to the top in a challenging, competitive & well paid international career. And I bet she's a really nice person too.

I can only wish such a thing was not big news...

Is she Pure Omani???

ColOman said...

I dont have an issue with her being on the show,thats her own personal choice, but when speaks.................. oh NO, Darwin…………… Your theory is proofed incorrect.........

Elagante said...

Ps.

SHE IS NOT OMANI, not every one holds the passport is Omani,
a persone has to learn to respect them selves before their nationalities,,,

AGAIN she's not omani and I wont need to mention her nationality cause it doesn't really matter,
