Women should not touch Bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid bad thoughts – Comedy News
You’ve got to laugh at the actual statement made by an Islamic cleric residing in Europe, who said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.” The anonymous sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Senousa
news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat such food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve them. Nonetheless, he emphasized a ban on women from touching
He said that these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male private parts” and hence could stimulate women or “make them think of sex.” The witty sheikh also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.
The sheikh was asked how to “control” women when they are out shopping for groceries and if holding these items at the market would be bad for them. The cleric answered saying this matter is between them and God.
Answering another question about what to do if women in the family like these foods, the sheikh advised the interviewer to take the food and cut it for them in a hidden place so they cannot see it.
The judgment of the cleric has stirred a storm of irony and denouncement among Muslims online, with hundreds of comments mocking the cleric.
One reader said that these religious “leaders” give Islam “a bad name” and another commented said that he is a “retarded” person and he must quite his post immediately.
Others called him a seeker of fame, but no official responses from renowned Islamic scholars have been published on the statements.
The end result is that this is a crazy world, where people can do crazy things, in order to be the highlight of news. What a shame.
