“An Islamic Group Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has blamed the increase in reported rape cases on women dressing indecently.” Ishaq Akintola, president of Muslim Rights Concern in Lagos, stated: “The way you dress is the way you will be addressed. You cannot send out a letter without receiving a reply.” Akintola added:
Why do they pose half-nude in adverts, magazine covers, etc? Why are women so willing to expose their Allah-given ‘delicacies’ to naked eye.
If a woman chooses to expose her “Allah-given delicacies” by way of her dress, it is her human right to do so, but herein lies the problem. According to Islamic jurisprudence, women are not equals to men. They are possessions of men and are commanded to cover themselves from head to toe to protect men from out-of-control desires:
(Quran 24:31) And tell the believing women to reduce of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
If a woman does not cover, she is fair game to be assaulted….
(Quran 33:59) O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused.
Men should be able to control themselves at the sight of a scantily-clad woman, but when they are instructed under Islamic rules, they blame women for their own victimization. The invocation of Islamic texts as an excuse for attacking women is now a global problem; we see expanding evidence of it across Europe, where women and girls are getting assaulted and raped by Muslim migrants. The same phenomenon manifests itself in the “Muslim grooming gangs” in the UK.
Still, all too many leaders in the West are more concerned about offending Muslims than about protecting innocent women from barbaric doctrines. They adamantly refuse to identify and call out the real problem of the clash of civilizations and what President Trump has called “radical Islamic terrorism.”
An Islamic Group Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has blamed the increase in reported rape cases on women dressing indecently.
According to Punch, it was said in a statement released by the group in response to a protest on rape staged by another group War Against Rape (WAR).
Members of WAR had staged the protest at the office of the Lagos State Governor Akinwumi Ambode, decrying the increase in rape cases in the state.
Ishaq Akintola, president of MURIC said in the statement that the protest was a waste of time.
He called on WAR to launch a campaign against indecent dressing, and asked women to stop exposing their “Allah-given ‘delicacies.’”
Read the statement below:
Rape is on the increase mainly because moral bankruptcy has hit its peak. Women are no longer ashamed of exposing their bodies in public.
Even dresses which do not expose their bodies are sewn so tight that no one is left in doubt about the objective. It is the age of dress-to-kill. But women forget that many of them will fall victim of stray bullets.
Indecent dressing is a provocation and this is the issue which decent societies must address. MURIC invites WAR to launch a campaign against indecent dressing. The way you dress is the way you will be addressed. You cannot send out a letter without receiving a reply.
WAR should tell women to elevate their self-dignity. Why do they pose half-nude in adverts, magazine covers, etc? Why are women so willing to expose their Allah-given ‘delicacies’ to naked eye…..
Women should be told in clear and unequivocal terms that indecent dressing constitutes sexual harassment.
