A senior Muslim cleric in Australia has sparked a furore by comparing women who do not wear a headscarf to "uncovered meat", implying that they invited sexual assault.Sheik Taj Aldin al-Hilali's actual quote is even worse. He delivered this speech last month, but his comments were just printed in an Australian paper:
"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside ... without cover, and the cats come to eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's?"I'm so furious at people who think like this that I'll refrain from specific comments aside from a broad condemnation of this particular man's position on sex crimes. I hope he doesn't have a wife or daughters. Thankfully, "Muslim community leaders rounded on Sheik Hilali for his comments, insisting that he no longer deserved his title as Australia's mufti." I should say so.
