It Is A National And Patriotic Duty To Rape And Harass Girls Who Wear Revealing Clothes – Egyptian Lawyer

An Egyptian lawyer, Nabih Al-Wahsh is under attack after he said that harassing and raping girls who wear revealing clothes such as ripped jeans is a “patriotic and national duty”.

Mr al-Wahsh made the controversial statement during a debate over a draft law on prostitution on Al-Assema TV panel show broadcast early last month.

”Girls must respect themselves so others respect them. Protecting morals is more important than protecting borders

“Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing?”

“I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.” al-Wahsh said

The National Council of Women said it would be filing a complaint against Mr al-Wahsh himself and rebuked his assertion. A spokesman said in a statement:

“All the members of the council denounce and decry this statement that explicitly promotes rape and sexual harassment.”
