So where in the world has the latest stupidity occurred? oh look no further than Somalia. I read this article in the papers yesterday and was appalled by the circumstances in which these unholy acts are being performed. There’s a new rule in Somalia according to the new Sharia law, which means that if any woman wears a bra she will be whipped. Fancy that.
A hardline Islamist group in Somalia has begun publicly whipping women for wearing bras that they claim violate Islam as they are ‘deceptive’. The insurgent group Al Shabaab has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to round up any women who appear to have a firm busts. The women are then inspected to see if the firmness is natural, or if it is the result of wearing a bra. If they are found wearing a bra, they are ordered to remove it and shake their breasts.
At first when I read this I thought i had stumbled across some sick joke but its actually quite true. and I was just thinking.. damn I wouldn’t mind walking around without one once in a while.. and here they are not enough they make the women wear a veil but now they cant wear bras?? what the hell? Al Shabaab, which seeks to impose a strict interpretation of Sharia law over all Somalia, also amputated a foot and a hand each from two young men accused of robbery earlier this month. They have also banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer. Apparently all breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat. Any man caught without a beard was been publicly whipped so the laws for men are equally strong as well.
Its sad to see that its going all the way to the Taliban laws all over again. once you get rid of one party, another emerges.
