I was not built that way. He was my husband! I file the articles away in my office but never actually read them. Dina, in her forties and who goes only by her first name, was taken aback by the reaction, though it is far from the first time her dancing has raised the ire of conservatives. For Egyptians who can afford it, a wedding means a belly dancer. She is the archetypal modern-day belly dancer, worshiped on stage, disparaged off it; a star in the spotlight, an object of suspicion beyond it. The navel is always supposed to be covered, if only by transparent material. That is what Dina must contend with, each and every day, in her self-confessed pursuit of happiness through dance. With all of that being pointed out, thankfully, there are actually some GOOD people on the internet. However, not a single person is shaming or even reminding her of it right now. Dina secretly married Hossam Abol Fotouh but got divorced after a sex tape scandal. In Oct , Dina was widely blamed — by officials, the media and the public — after scores of young men chased women through downtown Cairo groping them and pulling off their clothes — even those wearing Islamic headscarves and face veils. Wearing a beige tank top and tight fitting pants, and a golden necklace studded with blue charms, Dina said it was becoming increasingly difficult to be accepted as a belly dancer in Egypt, where 90 per cent of Muslim women wear the veil and the trend towards conservative Islam is growing. The second warning came to demand Abdul Raziq to comply with the society's values and cultures, and to wear clothes that fit the play's original script permitted by the censorship. She is also known for her very unique costumes, sometimes she would wear mini skirts or cycling shorts with bikini tops. But my mother is incredibly supportive, and my best friend.
