There were hundreds of comments beneath the thread in response to the CiF pieceBurqas and bikinis(an utterly breathtaking display of rationalizing terrorism and hatred for the West) by Priyamvada Gopal.  Gopal’s essay was inspired by that now iconic photo of an 18-year-old Afghan girl whose ears and nose were sliced off by the Taliban, as punishment for running away from her abusive in-laws.  Her narrative suggested a moral equivalence between the violent misogynistic brutality of The Taliban and the treatment of women in the U.S. and other democratic countries.

Among the comments to the piece was this thinly veiled, threat (still not taken down by CiF editors at the time of this writing) by “Khoda Saadi,” in response to a commenter critical of Gopal’s piece.
