    I vote yes to a movie about her but a different casting choice. Let’s not condone ‘white-washing’ in the media.

    They were advocating Angelina direct, not star. :D

    Honestly I got a bit teary myself. I first came across her when I purchased a second-hand book of her children’s stories (now one of my most precious books). There was an old newspaper cutting in the back about her and I was all ‘Whaaaat? This is one person? The same person did all this stuff…?’ and did a bit of research and yeah, she was such a glorious weirdo who did such amazing things and I also couldn’t help but think, ‘what would I do?’, too.

    Why are we whitewashing her as a Sufi? She was Muslim. Say it aloud!!! All Sufis are Muslim BTW.

  11. Jason Porath

    I specifically say she’s a Muslim repeatedly. I mention her Sufism because of its emphasis on pacificism and not lying, which are contradictory things for someone signing up to be a spy.

  12. Shah Wahid

    But not lying is an integral part of Islam. Oh well.
