Islam is Cool. By the Way, Here's a Wife.


Hoping to expand your nuptial smorgasbord? Add Shaadi to your list -- which, if you've been paying attention, should already include Russians, Filipinos and good white-bread Christian girls.

Shaadi is a conservative Indian "matrimonial" site, which I guess is less obnoxious than Filipina Heart's more overt cattle call. I found the ad alongside an article titled "Ad campaign promoting Islam angers NY lawmaker." Dude, that is some seriously misguided contextual action.

Hi Angela:

Not sure that I understand the connection between the article and the ad. The main religion of India is Hindu.

Hey Steve,

I wasn't drawing a connection between Islam and India. I just think an article about tensions over Islam -- whose tenets have sometimes been used as legal justification for polygyny -- is an indelicate place for a "matrimonial services" ad.

Despite its best efforts to vibe like a, Shaadi is what it is -- pretty much a mail order bride (or groom?) site.

You ignorant slut.

Hindus need to marry Hindus. The website helps a fairly small subset of the world's population find each other.

It is nothing like a mail-order bride service.

I hate you. You have ruined Adrants.

@ihatedumbpeople - why dont you tell us what you really think?

You know what's really ruining Adrants? Trolls like you!

Also, with a global population of just under 1 billion people I'd say Hindus are slightly larger than the 'fairly small subset of the world's population'
