Diaries of an ‘emo’ girlThere is more material there on the plague of emo material besetting Arab nations. Such material is contrary to the will of God.
M.S., says she became an emo girl at the age of 15. She describes herself as melancholic, quiet and mysterious and does not like to mix with others. Her friendships are limited.
She is addicted to foreign movies. One day, she watched a movie on emo and liked the idea. She embraced the new lifestyle and eventually became an emo girl.
“I feel that I am different from ordinary people. I know it’s not a familiar thing and will continue to be so”, she says. She is now 19.
Her favourite colour is black, which she describes as the colour of darkness and the devil. She loves to listen to Rock music, and her hobby is to take photographs of bloody wounds and different hair cuts.
Her own hair style covers part of the face; if it covers the right side of the face, then the emo person is a ‘greenhorn emo’, and if it’s on the left side of the face, then the person is a ‘pro emo’. The hair is short from the back, and cut in the style of a ponytail.
M.S. likes her personality and does not want to be like ordinary ‘others’. Otherwise, “the devil will not like me”, she says. She always carries the devil logo, and says she loves the devils and wants to satisfy them by drawing on her body with a blade. This, she says, gives her a feeling of comfort!
She spends her free time in watching foreign movies and playing ‘wega’ that involves witchcraft and the devil.
Almighty God, protect us from ‘wega’.
