Australia's "Mufti" calls women "uncovered meat"

So, Sheikh Taj Il Din (Australia's so called "Mufti") has managed to get himself on the front page of newspapers around the nation again. This time, the man who can only be described as a moron at best, has caused an uproar by comparing women to a piece of meat in a sermon he delivered during Ramadan at Sydney's Lakemba Mosque which attracts perhaps the largest number of worshippers of any Mosque in Australia he blamed women who "sway suggestively" and who wore makeup and no hijab for sexual attacks.

"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat," he said.

"The uncovered meat is the problem.

"If she was in her room, in her home, in her hajib, no problem would have occurred."

Well Hilaly- guess that makes me a piece of meat!

Sheik al-Hilaly told The Australian that he only meant to refer to prostitutes as meat, and not any scantily clad woman without a hijab.

Yeah right- seems he is now trying to justify his stupidity.

I find Hilaly's comments not only offensive but downright disgusting. I call for the Asutralian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC)to immediately demand that Hilaly step down from his position as Mufti. We cannot have this man professing himself as 'a leader'. Australian Muslims can no longer keep making excuses for him.

AFIC, I know you have been a notoriously useless body that has done nothing for the Muslims in Australia and have served only as a platform for individuals with their own political agendas- but now is the time to take action and do something for the people you claim to represent.

Get Hilaly out!

Hi US.
Saw the story on TV the other day. What a nut bar the guys is. I suppose it is deeply shamefully for a lot of muslims a leader making comments like that and especially in these culturally sentsitive times. Why did he say that stuff, its gross and bizaare. talking about pieces of meat and a cats appeitite. I mean the comparisons are ridiculous. The fact is rape is commited by criminals. Most people are not criminals, in a functioning law abiding society you can dress or behave however you like without threat of crime.

Arrrh well.

Blame the Lebanese in Sydney. They put him there and they're keeping him there.
He's Egyptian but his wife is Lebanese. That's how he's got their support.
