    EGYPT: Newly elected radical Islamic leader issues fatwa against women wearing high heal

    December 7, 2011

    The recent emergence of the hardline Salafi trend in Egypt after the January 25 revolution has given way to a series of controversial fatwas that mainly focused on women, Copts, culture and democracy.

    Preacher Mustafa al-Adawi issued a fatwa prohibiting Muslim women from wearing high heels because they are a source of seduction for men.

    “A woman can only wear high heels for her husband but she is not to do so outside her house,” he said.

    Another cleric, Sheikh Mahmoud Amer, had issued a fatwa prohibiting Muslims from voting for Coptic candidates or their Muslim counterparts who do not pray on regular basis.

    “It is forbidden by Islam to vote for them and whoever does that will be committing a grave sin,” he said.

    Amer and other Salafi clerics opposed the Egyptian revolution and declared that rebelling against the ruler is forbidden in Islam.

    Other controversial statements were issued by prominent Salafi and parliamentary candidate Abdel Moneim al-Shahat who said that democracy is a form of apostasy and categorized the works of Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz as “atheist literature.”

    These statements were met with a lot of resentment by Egyptian intellectuals and men of letters who warned of the dangers of such extremist ideologies on Egyptian culture and the awareness of the Egyptian people.

    In the same vein, Salafi cleric and potential presidential candidate Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu Ismail said he is against mingling of the sexes in public places.

    Despite their rejection of the idea of democracy, several Salafi clerics were quick to join the political scene after the fall of the regime and one of their parties, al-Nour, scored unexpected results in the first stage of the country’s first post-Mubarak parliamentary elections.

    Al-Nour Party came second after the Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Everyone knew this is going to happen, Still Muslims of Egypt selected such Islamist parties as next government and rejected liberal and secular parties. I have start believing that actually Majority of Muslims prefer such Fatwas, Jihads and Islamic parties to rule the country.

    Since, They themselves selected such Islamic radical government. Get ready for theocracy, sharia ,fatwas, burqas, flogging, stoning, Jihad and may be people want also..

    The emboldened portion is the key word here.

    This vote for the Islamists is probably more cultural than anything, especially since the people were unhappy with the Western backed regime and so they voted for something more domestic and deep rooted.

    There are, however, Muslim countries and republics that have successfully kept the Church and the State separate and are usually not part of the Arab world. So it is probably cultural and not necessarily attributable to all Muslims.

    It's same thing.

    It's between Secular & Liberal Vs Radical Islamic rule. They opted for latter.

    By keeping the Church away, they invited theocracy, sharia ,fatwas, burqas, flogging, stoning, Jihad. Even the party which lost the election was not related with west but even if that is the case, That is much better one.

    It's better to chose liberal and move in 22nd century rather than keep themselves in 6th century tradition. It happens only in Islamic state, May be that's why they are most backward and still living in old age and world is moving forward. There is no excuse. But anyway, It's their choice !!

    I am not too sure if high heels are seductive or not.

    However, this I know and that is if the husband is short and the wife is tall, then if they go for a walk with the lady in high heels, the man looks henpecked!

    Ask Sarkozy!

    Sarkozy’s midget-like height has long been discussed in European media. Reportedly, he is extremely sensitive about his small stature and reacts angrily to any aspersions about his tiny frame.

    What makes things worse for him is that his supermodel wife Carla Bruni towers over the president by at least four inches (even without high heels)!

    Pakistan mullahs are not frustrated since they savour the charms of girls and boys.

    I did not say that.

    Venna Malik said that in answer to a Mullah in a TV debate with the Mullah man!

    What's with all these fatwas and pronouncements lately?

    I think the world is going to lose one more country to the Islamist cancer, with Mullahs gaining ascendancy there.

    What fatwa you want ?

    I can get one announced for you by paying local mullah $$$. Last year on tv mullah issued fatwa against sleeping on bed.

    all of it is nonsense and fatwa itself is meaningless.

    Although I don't know much about Quaran but Fatwa and Jihad are also considered as sixth pillar of Islam what i read from few sites !!
