Both women said that growing up with strong women in their family played a strong role in their passion to fight for women's rights in Morocco. For them strong and powerful women is something normal. This is something that they want to teach to all Moroccan women.
It might seem trivial, but the sketch has done a good job. What else has done the job of raising awareness and if anything discouraging vulnerable people from swapping their semi-detached in Birmingham for sweeping the floors in Syria?
These are exciting times; I am fortunate to surround myself with artistic and strong Muslim women who evade these misconstrued perceptions of what they are and supposed to be. They are owning and reclaiming their visibility and audibility. Some of them, you can find on what is supposed to be first Muslim women's UK TV show dedicated to poetry and spoken word, Lyrically Speaking.
As a reformed extremist, I can identify better than most the Islamist platform from which these young men operate from. From my time in Al Muhajiroun, now a banned UK terrorist group, I remember well the exploitative nature of marrying religious ideology with geo-political events.

I believe strongly in god and I want to have the rights that the Quran says that I should have. Not what men say I should have. Women can't sit around and wait for their rights to come to them, they have to fight for them.
Ahmadi Muslims will host prayers across the UK today in solidarity with the victims of the Punjab mosque attack which left one dead and the Ahmadi com...
Like most viewers, I was gripped by the BBC's Muslims Like Us. Ten British Muslims were put in one house Big Brother-style. Within the first few minutes, most of them had taken against the notorious Islamist Anthony Small, who now calls himself Abdul Haqq.
For us within Tell MAMA, anything that challenges stereotypical and lazy views about Muslims is to be welcomed. This not only challenges the views of anti-Muslim bigots, it also challenges those who hold views similar to Abdul Haq and who believe that Islam and Muslims must behave and act in a specific manner or they are not deemed to be Muslim.
We cannot afford to be mere spectators, irrespective of how bad the present situation is, it can always get a lot worse. We cannot allow the far right's narrative of Islam and Muslims being the primary threat to all, go unchallenged. More of us must act, and act beyond our comfort zones, if we are to defeat their narrative.
While Brexit and the American election have sent shockwaves across the globe, I thought it is important I do not become overwhelmed by negativity, and look at some positive stories happening around me.
While the world has been fixated on the American presidential race, Somalia, once the epitome of a failed state, is holding its first elections since ...
The BBC must not underestimate the impact the media has on gullible individuals and how this tragically impacts our most vulnerable. Muslims don't want preferential treatment, but equality. Why would we single out British Muslims, would we do this with other communities?
Viewers will end up concluding that people like Abdul Haq do not speak for Muslims as a whole and that moderate Muslims can, and do, challenge such voices. They will also see that British Muslims can just be as intelligent, compassionate, mean, rude, polite, and dysfunctional as any other community in Britain. In that sense, the programme is humanising.
I suppose there probably is a market for religious cartoons but I will bet a cool million those cartoons are dreadful. Kids don't want to watch cartoons where you learn some naff pious message. They want to giggle at something naughty. Don't we all?
The success of this Review will be judged by implementation of its proposals in an inclusive and compassionate way so as to avoid further suspicion, mistrust and segregation.
