    Umm no

    I have human rights and i am legit british citizen

    I have every right to be here. We only have one world. Let’s share it together, cos we all got nowhere else to go
    Jews in Germany weren't attacked as soon as the Nazi party took power. They started with defamation campaigns for some time before any oppression happened. In Germany there was a major propaganda campaign against Poland before they attacked the Poles. They had to make the German people feel threatened before they invaded. They staged a fake attack in a radio station next to the German-Polish border and then claimed it was Poles who did it and then they invaded.

      Also, what kind of conditions would you require someone to have in order for your son/daughter to be allowed to marry them? E.g. do they need to be earning x amount of money etc.?

      :)
      Who am I to disagree? As long as they're marrying a muslim / muslimah than I'm okay with it (provided that they're marrying someone of the opposite sex).

          I'd encourage them (Im still young lol) , hate my bangladeshi culture, they prefer culture over religion (most) hence why they hit their own children over petty reasons and expect their children to bend over backwards but don't want to fulfil their duties towards their children.

          Luckily western bengali's aren't as extreme so future bengalis won't get beat up and berated over no reasons like I did. Still. Hate. This. Stupid. Culture.

          To mods: I don't know if this is considered backbiting my people (Bangladeshi's), if it is then please delete my post.

            Haha, I voted yes but I wouldn't necessarily say those who voted No are racist. Some people just want to preserve there own culture.

                Preserving one's ethnicity is not racism.

                      I asked my Saudi friend this question he said never because his whole society would turn against him so he fears the people. But if it was not for that he would allow it .
                      I truly understand your friend that's why I will say it depends on the situation of society and where I live ...
                      Ibn Al Qayyim may Allah have mercy on him said: ("
                      The heart on its journey towards Allah the Exalted is like that of a bird. Love is its head, and fear and hope are its two wings. When the head is healthy, then the two wings will fly well. When the head is cut off, the bird will die. When either of two wings is damaged, the bird becomes vulnerable to every hunter and predator..”

                            If your parents are traditional for them it would be awkward.

                            Advantage is that marriage will seem more exciting because you can explore your spouse's culture.

                            However I would be very careful to ensure the spouse and you can speak fluently to each other. Don't want miscommunications.

                              Learn from each other how to be more tolerant
                              Have children fluent in many languages lol (and possibly more open minded)
                              Meet different persons and understand different culture, history, food, etc
                              Maybe genetically strong off spring

                              On the down side :

                              Children identity (as Muslims, religion is enough)
                              Disapproval from family sometimes
                              Culture shock

                                I am sure there are threads that answer this Q, also you were married in a different culture so you must have an idea of the pros and cons....I have knowledge of this so if you need to ask a specific question then you can PM me...
