Egyptian Cleric Sa'd Arafat on Al-Rahma TV: "Women Are Harrassed Even When Wearing the Niqab or Hijab Because They Go Out Unnecessarily and Their Eyes Wander Right and Left".
As you can see in the video below, he blames women for rape and argues women should stay home and not go out if they don't want to be sexually harassed.
This rhetoric has no place in the twenty-first century!
This is how women are treated in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan etc. According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
Sharia laws permits child marriage, forced marriage, child brides, polygamy, FGM, acid attacks, honor killings, flogging, beheading and stoning.
