Egyptian Lawyer Jailed For Saying 'Ladies Wearing Ripped Jeans Deserve To Be Raped'

 
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 in punishment.
According to BBC , 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."

“I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass them,” 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 The 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.
