Australia’s senior Muslim cleric Sheik Taj Aldin al-Hilali has apologised for any offence caused by his comments that immodestly dressed women provoke sexual attacks.
The Australian reported today that, in a sermon delivered last month, Sheik al-Hilali likened scantily clad women to uncovered meat eaten by animals.
“I unreservedly apologise to any woman who is offended by my comments,” he said in a statement today.
“I had only intended to protect women’s honour, something lost in The Australian presentation of my talk” …
But the mufti of Australia and New Zealand would not back away from his comments and said he was shocked by the way his sermon was interpreted.
The meaty mufti clarifies:
“Women in our Australian society have the freedom and right to dress as they choose (while) the duty of man is to avert his glance or walk away.
“If a man falls from grace and commits fornication then if this was consensual, they would be both guilty, but if it was forced, then the man has committed a capital crime.”
Stand by for claims the apology was taken out of context. Meanwhile, ol’ Sheiky is feeling achy-breaky:
A spokesman for Sheik Alhilali said the backlash and criticism had badly affected him and he had been depressed and confined to bed all day, breathing with the assistance of an oxygen tank.
