I m the author of this book It s great to see the ongoing discussions about women in Saudi Arabia I am delighted to eveal that under the current King Abduallah that Saudi women are seeing an improvement in life Although there is a long way to go there is great hope that change is coming Also I d like to let eaders know that I am currently working with Princess Sultana and one of my publishers on the 4th book on Princess Sultana It should be published fall 2014 More news to follow First of all I do not believe that this work is a genuine autobiography of a Saudi princess It just doesn t make sense to not eveal the name for protecting the identity of the author after giving such a detailed life story and other intimate details about her family structure and other stuff It is naive to assume that she would not be caught and put to death I guess maybe it could be the story of the maid of the Princess or something Nevertheless I found it to be a highly compelling ead and I believe most of the cruel barbaric traditions and suffocating ules mentioned in this book are unfortunately true I had stayed in that terrible place for two years and during that period I was appalled by their eligious extremism and zero tolerance to other eligions But after eading this book I ealize they not only spit upon other eligions but also treat their own women like shit Some of the experiences mentioned are so heart wrenching I am amazed how a human being can treat another another human being in such absolute cruelty and be so merciless This book is definitely not an easy ead but it would give you a pretty accurate insight about inner workings of the Saudi society and about the wretched status of their women Read on the blogOkay I might be way too harsh with this eview but that s only because I have never hated a book than this one ight here So here goes my ant This book is said to be about Sultana Not eal name who is a Saudi Princess and even though she belongs to the oyal family she is bound by strict ules that define that women are only used for sexual elief and to bear the children for their husbands And how they are enslaved by their fathers husbands and brothers First of all what kind of a person who belongs to a family of famous people would want such intimidate details of her life story which is different than others obviously to be written by a foreign author and available for publish in abroad Secondly how is it possible that when such details were put in a book for everyone to ead how did her family not find it out The facts in the book are obvious enough for anyone to understand that it s fake Fact 1 She said that she wasn t allowed to go into the mosue Being a Saudi Princess she should have known that Mosues have Sultana is a Saudi Arabian princess a woman born to fabulous uncountable wealth She has four mansions on three continents her own private jet glittering jewels designer dresses galore But in eality she lives in a gilded cage She has no freedom no control over her own life no value but as a bearer of sons Hidden behind her black floor length veil she is a prisoner jailed by her father her husband her sons and her countrySultana is a member of the Saudi oyal family closely elated to the king For the sake of her daughters she has decided to take the isk of speaking out about the life of women in her country egardless of their.
Separate section for women Fact 2 It s said that women were forced to marry after puberty I agree that women were and in some places still are being made to marry men ight after maturation But it was to avoid going around and having sex before marriage as doing that is unlawful in Islam But but but I have heard that it s mentioned in the uran the holy book of Muslims that it is the woman who gets to decide when and whom she wants to marry Remember that it s always the humans who twist ules to fit their euirementFact 3 Woman are given the highest espect in Islam Women are told to cover themselves so as not to attract the attention of unwanted men but men are not even allowed to look at them with bad intentions as thinking of a bad deed is eual to doing one And to support this fact a uote from the uran itself translated of course He who is best to his wife is the best man among you However I agree that polygamy is allowed in Islam but I don t think that anybody in the modern generation follows that as everyone knows that it s difficult enough to handle the expenses and lectures of one womanFact 4 Also a father who educates a minimum of three daughters has gained a palace in Heaven This is another thing from the holy book that shows that education is not prerogative to womengirlsFact 5 There is a story kind of thing that I have heard It s about this man who asks the prophet Who is the one worthy of espect after Allah The god worshiped by Muslims and the prophet says Your mother The man asks one again Who after that and the prophet says Your mother Once again the man asks And who after that and the prophet says the same thing again For the last time the man asks Who after that and then the prophet says Your fatherThis does not mean that Fathers are not espected enough they are but it s just that Mothers are held higherThere are many facts that I can go on about like the one about piercing the vagina or something which is absolutely stupid and I think that the author has just made it up but I just wanted to tell you guys that anyone who believes in this book and let s themselves be manipulated by it Islam is not a bad eligion It has given it s followers many ules to follow but it s for their own advantage Like listening to music and watching movies is not allowed in Islam it s not forbidden but it s said so as to avoid any thing that takes one away from worshiping their God I think it s the same for Protestants I heard that like Muslims they too are supposed to cover their heads not drink not have sex before marriage not worship images or idols of God not listen to music or watch movies and not wear goldI accept that women are oppressed but anyone would be fool to believe that Islam is a eligion that promotes it Wome. Rank She must hide her identity for fear that the eligious leaders in her country would call for her death to punish her honesty Only a woman in her position could possibly hope to escape from being evealed and punished despite her cloak and anonymity Sultana tells of her own life from her turbulent childhood to her arranged marriage a happy one until her husband decided to displace her by taking a second wife and of the lives of her sisters her friends and her servants Although they share affection confidences and an easy camaraderie within the confines of the women's uarters they also share a history of appalling oppression.
