Burkha for Babies: Fatwa by Saudi Cleric

Close on the heels of one cleric raping his 5 year old daughter and then killing her by breaking her skull, back injuring and burning her, comes the news of another cleric in Saudi Arabia who has the right cure for such incidents.   Babies to wear Burkha.

What’s next?  Putting Burkhas on female camels?

Baby-550x404Sheikh Abdullah Daoud came out with his Fatwa in an interview on the Islamic al-Majd TV

According to Daoud, dressing infants and children in the traditional Muslim veils would reduce the sexual molestation of minors, though the cleric did not cite any evidence for his view.

Now other clerics are scrambling to “limit the damage”, if you will and coming up with the same age old argument – it is denigrating to Islam.

Sheikh Mohammad al-Jzlana, a former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, told al-Majd TV that the fatwa was “denigrating to Islam and Shariah and made Islam look bad.”

Oh well.
