MUSLIM BEAUTY PEAGENT CHALLENGES WESTERN CONTESTS

The international beauty contest, World Muslimah Award 2014, was held from November 10 to 21, 2014 in Bogor Indonesia. 
Countries participating in the contest include Iran, Palestine, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Britain, the US, India, Malaysia, Canada, The Netherlands, Egypt, Trinidad, Tobago, and Indonesia, according to Irlita Dwiyanto, a spokesperson of Pertamedika Hospital in Sentul City on Saturday. 
All finalists will undergo medical and mental examination in Pertamedika Hospital on Tuesday (Nov 11). The examinations are meant to know their intelligence quotients (IQ), emotional quotients (EQ) and spiritual quotients (SQ). 
The contestants, aged 18 to 27, will be judged, among other things, by their intelligence in reciting Al Quran and how they wear their hijabs.
A Tunisian woman called for a free Palestine as she won a pageant exclusively for Muslims in Indonesia Friday, seen as a riposte to Western beauty contests.
Eighteen finalists, who include a doctor and a computer scientist, paraded in glittering dresses against the backdrop of world-renowned ancient temples for the contest in the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country.
Computer scientist Fatma Ben Guefrache(photo) was announced the winner and received a prize which includes a gold watch, a gold dinar, and mini pilgrimage to Mecca.
“May almighty Allah help me in this mission, and free Palestine, please, please, free Palestine and the Syrian people,” the tearful 25-year-old woman said. 
British contestant Dina Torkia said she hoped this year’s World Muslimah Award would not only provide a contrast to Western beauty pageants, but would also dispel prejudices against Islam.
