Gender mixing (ikhtilat) leads to flirting. Flirting leads to touching. Touching leads to zina. Zina leads to the destruction of marriage. The destruction of marriage leads to the downfall of family. The downfall of family leads to the end of humanity. Keep the partitions up!

No need for this extreme.
Do you have a compelling argument for why the sexes should be segregated? Consider the logistics. How would you manage to keep men and women separated, and how would you propose people meet each other to form relationships and have families if the sexes are partitioned?
Islamic civilization has managed to do this quite well for the past 1,400 years.
Islamic civilization has not come up with any concept for pop music festivals for the past 1400 years, And quite frankly I think your understanding of Islam lacks relevance for the issues of complex postmodern societies of the 21 century.
Has it? It does not seem to me that sexual assault does not take place in Islamic societies – separation has not accomplished this, whereas that seems to be the main thrust of your opening post. Women are still assaulted in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia, and have been historically victims of sexual crimes all over the world, irrespective of religion and location.
its sunnah of the prophet. It’s the islamic way of doing things. Have respect.
I never claimed all of a sudden Islamic countries should do things the Western way, though that does not invalidate my point that the problems you speak of exist in those countries.
Problems exiss, but not because of Islam, but because of the failure to follow it in the first place.
Maybe, maybe not, either way, the presence of gender segregation in these countries has not prevented the problem that you suggest it would solve.
Like i said, Islam is a perfect system, if it was really followed by people there would be no problems.
That depends. Not everyone wishes to follow Islam, or any organised religion, for in spite of their rules, or even because of them, some segments of society are inevitably maligned.
Dude, this is a Muslim blog. Show some respect. I don’t want to have to ban you again for being a troll.
I have not been disrespectful, I have merely been asking questions – respect however, cuts both ways. If you feel I have been disrespectful then I apologise, but I would also appreciate it if you could actually point out how and why.
Dude you are a troll. You are merely tolerated on this blog. Your comments are typically negative and unwelcome.
So what is it Islam has to offer young music festival goers? What’s a fruitful contribution in this case from a divine order that has answers for all aspects of human societies?
Still waiting for an answer. Seems like Islam has not much to offer for the vast majority of youth.
it offers them the Truth and eternal life.
Hmm, let me see…🤔
How about a life free of drugs? Of fornication? Of STDs?
