NZ: Islamic Holy Man Tells Women to Cover Up (to be safe from Muslims…..)

Dominion Post

thanks to Mullah who is curious if it also protects women from acid attacks….?

New Zealand chairman and Wellington Islamic Centre imam Mohammad Amir said Muslim women wore veils to protect themselves and hide their beauty.

It would be inappropriate for a male stranger to see a Muslim woman without her veil, even in her own home, a cleric says.

How exotic! How exiting!
Looks like covering up does not keep Egyptian Muslim women safe after all:
Wellington:
Men will be banned from seeing a video showing Muslim women revealing their faces without veils at a New Zealand art gallery next month, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

New Zealand chairman and Wellington Islamic Centre imam Mohammad Amir said Muslim women wore veils to protect themselves and hide their beauty.

“A woman should only share her beauty with her husband,” he said.

Women had a range of veils to choose from, with a “minimum requirement” allowing a woman to expose her face and hands, to a “maximum requirement” in which she was covered from head to toe.

Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand regional representative Rehanna Ali said a veil or headscarf moved the focus away from a woman’s appearance to her inner beauty. “It says ‘I don’t wish to be judged by my physical appearance, but rather by my intellect, my character, my personality’.”

Sweetheart, we will never know about your intellect…..

Cultural issues were more likely as the Muslim population grew, she said. “I think that as a country . . . we are quite mature now in recognition of the diversity [of the] community that we have here.”

  1. Many imams make the claim that Islam respects women. Well see can all see how true that claim is.
