Muslim Cleric: “Women Allowed To Strip As Long As They Keep Their Faces Covered
“A Muslim cleric’s claim that women who do not wear the veil are like “uncovered meat” who attract sexual predators sparked outrage around Australia recently. Sheikh Taj Din al-Hilali, the nation’s most senior Muslim cleric, compared immodestly-dressed women who do not wear the Islamic headdress with meat that is left uncovered in the street and is then eaten by cats.
“In a Ramadam sermon in a Sydney mosque, Sheik al-Hilali suggested that a group of Muslim men recently jailed for many years for gang rapes were not entirely to blame. There were women, he said, who “sway suggestively” and wore make-up and immodest dresses “and then you get a judge without mercy and gives you 65 years. But the problem all began with who?” he said, referring to the women victims. Women, he said, were “weapons” used by Satan to control men.
“But, I do not wish it to seem like our great religion is out of touch with contemporary times,” he continued. “The postulates of religion, especially one as ancient and restrictive as ours, should sometimes be bent to accommodate for the passing of time, which is why I have decided to compromise on the issue,” the cleric stated after being condemned by the public for his comments.
