Violation of human rights and unequaty between men and women can never be excused. When these rights are violated it is always a tragedy and can never be accepted.  Individuals use and acts and violation of human rights in the name of any religion can accordingly never be excused and must meet our firm resistence.  
Still it is important to remember that beliefs and religions can never be used for definition of people as either juste or unjuste, unequal or equal. It is simply a much too rough simplification to define people based on their religion.  
Of course it must be possible to discuss any act/violation of human rights that is done and the fact that it was done in the name of a specific religion.  And freedom of religion can not be used as excuse for violation of human rights.  Groups belonging to different religions are historically influenced by for instance patriarchal systems and these systems you should be able to discuss and critisized. However, wiithin the same religiions you will fins persons working against such injustice. 
And still, exemples of persons that act and reference to religion as motivation of the act, can not be taken as motivation for defining any person/all individuals belonging to that belief as unjuste or unjuste. Very often hower customs and traditions also are mixed up with religion and belief. 
Within any belief you will be able to find both juste and unjuste people. Behaviours should be discussed  in relation to the right of every human beeing.  Unfortunately, in these days of provocations and violation of human rights by different extreme groups in the name of religion, we very quickly define people belonging to the same religion as unjuste and a threat. Let us instead base our opinion of people on what every individual say and do in relation to human rights, not unheard on their belief.
