Egyptian lawyer jailed for saying women in ripped jeans should be raped

Recommended Posts

An Egyptian lawyer has been sentenced to three years in prison for saying that women who wear ripped jeans should be raped in punishment.

Nabih al-Wahsh, a prominent conservative, was also fined 20,000 Egyptian pounds (£839; $1,130).

The lawyer made the remarks on a TV panel show in October, during a debate on a draft law on prostitution.

"Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?" he said.

He added: "I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her."

Mr Wahsh said that women who wore revealing clothing were "inviting men to harass them", and said "protecting morals is more important than protecting borders".

He also called the Holocaust imaginary and said he would kill Israelis if he saw them. I'm surprised they didn't arrest him for that.

They clearly have an agenda. And of course, it's not good for us. Ban them all.
