Malaysia’s police, who have recently cracked down on dissident bloggers and broken up anti-government demonstrations, say that protests over an edict against Muslim women wearing trousers – are a security threat.
Muslim Malaysia’s National Fatwa Council recently issued a religious ruling that wearing trousers was un-Islamic.
It said that, by wearing trousers, young girls risked becoming “tomboys” who became sexually active.
“I’m warning them and will take stern action as it involves national security,” said the Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan.
Malaysia frowns on oral and gay sex, describing them as against the order of nature. Under civil law, offenders — male and female — can be jailed for up to 20 years, caned or fined.
As well as women in trousers, the Fatwa Council is considering barring Muslims from practicing yoga.
Probably violates Mormon shari’a, as well.
