Muslim Actress Sila Sahin Loses Her Top

..for Playboy, that is.

The Sun is there (warning: link contains photo of wardrobe malfunction).


Photo from Sahin's Playboy shoot (just the head; the rest of her body is cut out, which is kind of the opposite of what you could expect if Islamists got hold of her)

A MUSLIM actress has caused a storm by posing naked for Playboy.

Sila Sahin has been branded a “whore” and a “western slut” after appearing topless on the cover of the German edition of the men’s magazine.

And Islamic fanatics have posted threatening internet messages.

Sila, raised in Germany by conservative Turkish parents, says she fears being “spat at” and “shamed”.

Her parents are said to have reacted with “horror” at the 12-page coverage, and her mother has apparently cut off all contact.

Sila, 25 – star of German soap Good Times, Bad Times – claimed the shoot was a reaction to the “slavery” of her youth.

She added: “What I want to say with these photos is, ‘Girls, we don’t have to live according to the rules imposed upon us’.

“For years I subordinated myself to various societal constraints. The Playboy photo shoot was a total act of liberation.”

But Islamic internet sites are being monitored by the BND – the German intelligence agency – after threats were posted about her “shaming Muslim womanhood” and “prostituting herself for money”.

One poster on the Jihad Watch website wrote: “She needs to be very careful…” Another simply said: “She must pay.”

A kebab shop owner, asked on German TV what he would do if Sila were his daughter, replied: “I would kill her. I really mean that. That doesn’t fit with my culture.”

The Islamic Community of Germany has called for a boycott of Sila.

About three million Muslim immigrants live in Germany, which has seen numerous honour killings in recent years by fanatical husbands, fathers and brothers.

In 2009, an asylum seeker was sentenced to life after killing his “too independent” German wife.

One police intelligence officer said of Sila: “I think what she did was either very brave, or very stupid.She will be double-locking her door at night for a long time to come.”

While the reaction of some of her co-coreligionists is disturbing (yet strangely predictable), I think it’s pretty sad that many women think that liberation means showing what they ate for breakfast.

    let us be honest….there is no concept of tznius in the muslim culture

    only the concept that the female form is evil and women must be subjugated

    why else would you cover up a 3 year old child

    she didnt do this to feel liberated…she did it to throw a big middle finger to her people

    and good for her

    whats that i hear??? oh…silence from every lefty blogger and news outlet

    BTW, the comment in the article from Jihad Watch…Jihad watch is a site that tries to educate people about the ugly and dangerous sides of Islam. Reading the article, you would think it was the author of the site who made the comments "she must pay…" and supported that viewpoint; far from it. It was commenters at his site predicting that her Muslim compatriots would make her pay, hence she should be careful, and being sarcastic ("she must pay").

    puttting aside our teachings,and looking at the girl in general she is a soap star,a very good looking young woman who must have thought about the actions she was about to take and advised her family i would imagine.
    she may infact have decided this form of action for the reasons she states,even though ther'e are less drastic measures she could have taken,but it may/would have been the case that some-one within the fanatics movement would have made a case against her,so you might as well be hung for a sheep,as a lamb,she may have had some problems doing her actress work,and getting naked pays better and is a quicker route to the top.
    lets be honest putting aside our teachings,any red blooded man,(tzniut-talmud)to one side,would not turn away to look at the ground if he could look at a beautyfull form,and you would be hard pushed to find the radical thinkers who condem her looking at the wall instead of her,infact i shudder to think what could happen to her in their hands,they say you cant do this/other but we all know among a large amount of these people they are doing that which they condem others for.

    Whatever, she’s NOT a true Muslim, she says I’m a Muslim then she poses nudes, where’s the point?

    She’s stupid after all.
