Tunisian Preacher Calls Teen Girl Who Posted Topless Photo Online an "Epidemic" and Demands "Quarantine"

"Public health"


A Tunisian Salafi preacher has called for a 19-year old girl who posted her topless pictures on Facebook to be "quarantined" and stoned to death before she starts "an epidemic."

Tunisian newspaper AssabahNews quoted Salafi preacher Alami Adel, who heads the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, saying: "According to God's law, she deserves 80 to 100 lashes, but what she committed is worth much more than that. She deserves to be stoned to death and she must be quarantined because what she did is an epidemic."

      “The [Iranian] activists said in a message on FEMEN website that “in the historical battle ‘woman v. Islam’ women will win!””


      “In a phone interview with Al Arabiya English [Anti-Islamist Egyptian female activist] Alia [al-Mahdi] said, “I chose to protest this way because of the ideas that say that we do not own our bodies and that we are public property, as people are the ones who decided what should be done with our bodies.”

      Ok, now, Reason editors. That’s you’re cue to print another Steve Chapman diatribe about “Islamophobia”.
