Say What!? "It is a duty to r*pe ladies who dress anyhow" – Egyptian Lawyer

This man is looking for trouble. An Egyptian lawyer, Nabih al-Wahsh's, has sparked outrage after he said harassing and r*ping girls who wear revealing clothes is a patrotic and national duty.
His words: ''Girls must respect themselves so others respect them. Protecting morals is more important than protecting borders. 
"Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing? 
“I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to s*xually harass her and a national duty to r*pe her.”

Mr al-Wahsh made the controversial statement during a debate over a draft law on prosti-tution on Al-Assema TV panel show broadcast early last month.

His comments have prompted fury across the country. Egypt’s National Council for Women announced it plans to file a complaint against the TV channel and issued a plea for media outlets to refrain from providing a platform for individuals who incite violence against women.

The National Council also said it would be filing a complaint against Mr al-Wahsh himself and rebuked his assertion. A spokesman said in a statement:

“All the members of the council denounce and decry this statement that explicitly promotes rape and sexual harassment.”

Mr al-Wahsh, a prominent conservative has previously stated his opposition to women serving as judges, arguing that if women become judges they could also become muftis - a Muslim legal expert who has the power to give rulings on religious issues.

He said: “If we let a woman become a judge, why shouldn't she become Sheik of Al-Azhar? Why shouldn't she become the Mufti?

“Why don't we all just go to Hell?! Will she issue me a fatwa while she is mens-truating?!”

- We think his stands are more about religion. Both men and women need moderation, in all things.
