From Al Arabiya:
A Saudi cleric has called for all female babies to be fully covered by wearing the face veil, commonly known as the burka, citing reports of little girls being sexually molested.
In a TV interview on the Islamic al-Majd TV, which seems to date back to mid-last year, Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, stressed that wearing the veil will protect baby girls. The Sheikh tried to back his assertion with claims of sexual molestation against babies in the kingdom, quoting unnamed medical and security sources.
Please remind me why it is not okay to criticize Islam. If there is a War on Women in this world, it is being perpetrated by people like this cleric. Only in modern Islam do we see things like “honor killings,” where rape victims are stoned to death, homosexuals are stoned to death, and women are constantly subjugated in horrifying ways.
And now, instead of focusing on punishing pedophiles, this Islamic cleric would rather force them all to wear burkas. If you’re Muslim, you may as well just cover all females in a tarp from birth until death; the only defense against sex crimes in the Muslim world seems to be “out of sight, out of mind,” as if that really works.
