An Egyptian Lawyer, Nabih al-Wahsh has been sentenced to 3 years in jail for saying that women who wear ripped jeans should be raped as a punishment.
The lawyer made the statement on a TV Panel show in October during a debate on a draft law of prostitution.
He said:
“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”, he said.
He added that “protecting morals is more important than protecting borders.”
The National Council for Women’s Rights said they were a “flagrant call” for rape and violated “everything in the Egyptian constitution.”
The council has also filed a complaint with the Supreme Council for Media Regulation about the Oct. 19 broadcast.
According to BBC, Wahsh is known to incite outrage he previously called the Holocaust “imaginary” and is a self-described proud anti-Semite.
“If I see any Israeli, I will kill him,” he said during a separate TV appearance.
