An Islamic cleric has declared that Muslim women are allowed to go nude, wear bikinis and mini-skirts as long as they cover their faces. Sheikh Taj Din al-Hilali, Australia most senior Muslim cleric, said Islam should not be out of touch with with contemporary times,” but there is a boundary that must not be crossed.
“There is a boundary that must never be crossed,” he was quoted as saying by newslo.com. That boundary, he explained, is their faces.
“As far as I’m concerned, Australia is a developed first-world country and as such, is a leader in both economic and cultural innovations. So, when it comes to Muslim women in Australia, I believe they are allowed to wear whatever they want below the neck, which is to say that their faces must remain covered at all times. Other than that, they’re good to go.”
Asked to elaborate, Sheikh al-Hilali added: “They can go with ordinary t-shirts and mini-skirts, long evening gowns and even bikinis, like Western women. As far as I’m concerned, they can even go to nudist beaches, star in porn movies and dance around poles in strip clubs. It really makes no difference as long as they keep the entirety of their faces completely covered so that they can be as religion-abiding as they are sinful. What can I say, duality is today tricky to pull-off even if you’re a Christian, not to mention if you’re Muslim,” he said.
