The true question is not if it is ok, but are you really altering the religion itself or are you altering an already altered version of that religion.
Ask yourself this:
Who wrote the bible?
The answer is people did. God instructed them to.
Then you also have to ask yourself, did they really write exactly what God wanted them to write, or did they add or remove parts to suit themselves.
The truth is that people can be corrupt, and what better way to make things go the way you want them to go than to have the chance to write what you want into the Book?

In ceratin Islamic religions and governments it’s amoral for woman to show any amount of her skin to anyone but her family (by blood or marriage). to a person living in such circumstance it’s a basic moral value.

Certinaly everything is relative in some respects, but there are values that transcend all belief systems. Basic laws of humanity, like murder is wrong.
As well, you are assuming that everyone is equal. What if morality was defined by a being that is greater than yourself, a being that has the ultimate insight as to the best way for you to live because he created you and has a plan for your life?
Now that kind of morality is superior to mere 'human' derived morality.
