    Exclamation Now a Moslem Miss England...

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/4212412.stm




    A teenager who was born in Uzbekistan has become the first Muslim beauty contestant to be crowned Miss England.
    Hammasa Kohistani, 18, said she was "happy to make history" and was looking forward to representing England in the Miss World championships in China.

    She was born in Tashkent, central Uzbekistan, after her parents were forced to flee Afghanistan.

    The brunette, who speaks six languages including Russian and Persian, was selected from 40 contestants.

    She was crowned on Saturday night following the two-day competition at Liverpool's Olympia Theatre.

    I'm making history and I'm very happy

    Hammasa Kohistani

    Dressed in an ivory white chiffon and silk ball gown designed and made by her mother, the teenager spoke of her joy at winning the title.

    "When they announced that I had won I thought I had misheard. I hoped they hadn't, but it took a second to sink in."

    Asked about her feelings at being the first Muslim Miss England, she said: "I'm making history and I'm very happy. Hopefully I won't be the last."

    The student, who was known as Miss Maya after the Asian fashion house which sponsored her, has also been offered a part in a forthcoming Bollywood movie.

    Among those Miss Kohistani beat was another Muslim entrant, Sarah Mendly, 23, who was voted Miss Nottingham.

    Miss Mendly had been among the favourites but her entry caused controversy when Liverpool's Islamic institute called on her to pull out because contestants are often scantily clad.

    The Miss World championships will be held in December.

    Up here in the Nordic countries, we sometimes make fun of English women and their attractiveness (or lack of it). Although having visited England, I know quite well that this is mostly a silly cliche, as I've seen many delightful English roses in person.

    Anyway, any real Englishmen or -women must be seething with anger at this outrage.

    I don't know how seriously people generally take the Miss England pageant over there but really, if you are going to celebrate feminine beauty, then it really should be a native girl. Honestly, this is a slap in the face to all real pretty English girls.

    Think she's better looking personally.

    Not only a cliche, but an untruth, mostly spread through jealousy. English women are among the most beautiful females on earth... ask me I know - I have travelled a bit.

    "Stupid", more likely.

    I can hear strains of laughter coming across the channel.

    This time I have my glasses on. :laugh:

    Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people? How could England, which has some of the most beautiful women in the world, crown this thing Miss England? What a disgrace! :
    Should the subduing talisman, the Cross, break, then will come roaring forth the wild madness of the old champions, that insane Berserker rage, of which the northern poets sing. That talisman is brittle, and the day will come when it will pitifully break. The old stone gods will rise from the long-forgotten ruin and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes; and Thor, leaping to life with his giant hammer, will crush the Gothic cathedrals!

    ---Heinrich Heine
