“It’s Part Of National Duty To Rape Women Wearing Ripped Jeans” – Egyptian Lawyer

Outrage has been sparked after a prominent Egyptian lawyer said he he believes women who wear ripped jeans deserved to be raped. The lawyer, Nabih al-Wahsh made the shocking comment during a TV panel show discussion debating a draft law on prostitution.

The conservative lawyer said it was part of the ‘national duty’ to rape women wearing such garments because they were “inviting men to harass them” as he also said that his view was even more valid if the jeans were ripped from the back.

He said: “Girls must respect themselves so others respect them. “Protecting morals is more important than protecting borders.”

“Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?” the lawyer said on Al-Assema earlier this month.

He added: “I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.”

According to media reports, Mr al-Wahsh’s remarks have prompted fury across the country and Egypt’s National Council for Women announced it plans to file a complaint against the TV channel.
