You knew that was coming. Why wouldn’t perverts who genitally mutilate 2-year olds steal their childhood and wrap them up in shrouds?
This has been a long time in the making.Â 10 years ago the BBC was showing Yussuf Islam aka Cat Stevens dressed in Islamic garb herding fully shrouded 6 and 7 year olds into a madrassah.
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.
This is no surprise. After all, another Saudi sheikh, Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu’bi,Â said in 2008: “There is no minimal age for entering marriage. You can have a marriage contract even with a one-year-old girl.” If a one-year-old girl can be married, a one-year-old girl can be an object of desire. And if a one-year-old girl can be an object of desire, then it is her responsibility to cover up.
“’Burkas for babies’”: Saudi cleric’s new fatwa causes controversy,” by Mohammad Alyousei forÂ al-Arabiya, February 3 (thanks to JW):
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. Â (continued below the fold….)
(ANSAmed) – TUNIS, FEBRUARY 1 – A dozen little girls, the older not even eight years of age, wore the Islamic veil when they posed around a Kuwaiti preacher who is visiting Tunisia to preach
conservativeIslam. The photos led to vibrant protests across the country with even 70 lawmakers in the Constituent Assembly signing a motion to condemn what the Tunisian association for the rights of minors slammed as a ‘crime against children’. The little girls, the rights association said, were ‘used to convey an idea which is far removed from our culture and the noble precepts of Islam’ with a clear intention to indoctrinate the population.

Recently picked up on social media, sheikh Dauod’s statement prompted wide condemnation from his fellow Saudis on Twitter. Some tweeps called for the Sheikh to be held accountable because his ruling denigrates Islam and breaches individual privacy.
Sheikh Mohammad Al-Jzlana, former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, told Al Arabiya that Dauod’s ruling was denigrating to Islam and Shariah and made Islam look bad.
Jjzlana urged people to ignore unregulated fatwas and explained that there are special regulations set by the Saudi authorities to administer religious edicts and appoint those who are entitled to issue them.
He said that he feels sad whenever he sees a family walking around with a veiled baby, describing that as injustice to children.
