  Co-Ed Dervishes

Social Justice Posted by <Xnoubis> on Sunday May 07, @09:05AM
from the Rumi-nations dept.

The Turkish branch of the Mevlevi Order (founded on the teachings of Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi) is making a splash by allowing men and women to whirl together in the same room. This could be an encouraging sign that Turkey's secular democracy is blending with their spiritual heritage, planting the seeds of a genuinely progressive Islamic culture.

This is great news. One must wonder, nonetheless, how much this change is due to internal social demands and how much to external pressures. Religious establishments in Turkey are subject to high levels of coercion from a secular mainly military-run government that is trying to paint its country as one which is ready to join the European Union. Many changes by relious organizations have been imposed rather than voluntary. I hope this particular change is really one that the Sufis themselves desire.

Another interesting sign of the times in the Islamic world is Nefertiti TV, a new Egyptian attempt at mass media sex and birth control education.
