Saudi Cleric’s fatwa: Burqas for babies

640x392_35538_264031

Meet Sheikh Abdullah Daoud.  He’s back in the news as a result of the reports on the torture, rape and murder of 5 year old Lama by her father Fayhan al-Ghamdi, as reported on earlier today.  

This genius has a solution for the problem of fathers being tempted to rape, torture and murder their own daughters:  Put them in a burqa.

A Saudi cleric who called for baby girls to wear burkas for their own safety has been subjected to a barrage of criticism on social media. The preacher’s remarks have been widely condemned for denigrating Islam, and as a breach of privacy.

Sheikh Abdullah Daoud made the remarks during an interview with Islamic Al-Majd TV last year, but video of the interview recently went viral on social media sites and became a topic of widespread debate and derision.

Daoud claimed that baby girls would be protected from abuse if they wore a full burka

Luckily, this isn’t finding fertile ground with the rest of his countrymen

Sheikh Mohammad al-Jjzlana, former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, said Daoud’s fatwa made Islam and Sharia law look bad.

Jjzlana urged people to ignore Daoud’s statement and any unregulated fatwas. He said it makes him feel sad anytime he sees a family veiling their baby, describing it as an injustice
