Egypt's top Islamic authority defended women's rights to wear trousers in public following a high profile court case in neighbouring Sudan were women were flogged for dressing in pants, the local press reported on Wednesday.Wow that is a relief hey?
Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa said in response to a question during a public lecture that trousers covering women's bodies are permitted, though they should be loose and not see-through. He specified that "stretch" pants were, in particular, unacceptable.
I mean here we in 2009 and there is still need to have a religious authority pronounce on whether a woman can wear pants (trousers).
Does this also mean that men can wear dresses as long as they are loose fitting and not "see-through"?
Perhaps there is need to summon a council of religious leaders from all around to look into the issue of Muslim men in flowing robes that appear to be nothing more than a dress!
Mmmmmmmmm ... what a drag to reduce Islam to this kind of bullsh*t.
