An Egyptian lawyer has sparked outrage and he revealed he believes women who wear ripped jeans deserved to be raped. Nabih al-Wahsh was speaking during the Infirad Show, a current affairs talk show in Egypt hosted by Saeid Hasaseen. Incredibly, Wahsh said it was part of the ‘national duty’ to rape women wearing such garments because they were “inviting men to harass them”.
He also said that his view was even more valid if the jeans were ripped from the back, according to Al Arabiya.
He said: “Girls must respect themselves so others respect them. “Protecting morals is more important than protecting borders.” Brave female guests on the show attempting to fight back against Wahsh’s views after being outraged by his comments.
The debate was aired on October 19 on the Al-Assema satellite channel as guests discussed the country’s draft law fighting prostitution and debauchery. Maya Mursi, Head of the National Council for Women’s Rights said the comments were a “flagrant call” for rape and violate ‘everything in the Egyptian constitution. The council has now filed a complaint about the statement to the Supreme Council for Media Regulation. But despite the backlash, Wahsh has refused to back down, and has even released an updated statement to another media website where he said ‘his daughter would also deserve that [rape, sexual harassment] if she decided to wear jeans that are ripped from the back’.
