A few days ago we posted an article here about creeping Sharia in Malaysia: in Terengganu, non-Muslim women were to be forced to comply with dress standards set by Muslim authorities. Now a PAS (Parti Islam SeMalaysia, Islamic Party of Malaysia) official has explained it all for us: the Jews, you see, have made this necessary by introducing corruption into Malay moral standards:
“PAS has defended the Terengganu government’s imposition of a dress code for women workers, saying that provocative dressing by women has ‘a very close link’ to murders, rapes, molest and sexual abuses. PAS Youth chief Salahuddin Ayub also blamed Jews for pioneering a ‘provocative, seductive and branded dressing culture’ which prioritised the ego of the dresser.” This from The Star, with thanks to Nicolei.
I don’t know how they think the Jews can find the time to turn their attention from ruling the world to Malaysian fashions, but it gets worse: Salahuddin charged that opposition to the dress code was evidence that one was an enemy of Islam and a tool of the Zionists: “In a statement, Salahuddin said that Kelantan Umno deputy chairman Datuk Zaid Ibrahim’s protest over the ruling showed that he was anti-Islam and that Umno was a proxy of the Jews.”
What about human rights? Let Salahuddin explain: “‘The question of violating basic human rights does not arise when enforcing the compulsory rule of covering the aurat (parts of the body that should not be exposed according to Islamic belief),’ he said. Salahuddin added that it was not a matter of rights but of responsibility to adhere to rules set by Allah.”
Logged and noted, Salahuddin. I hope they are paying attention in Europe.
