 A Saudi cleric has called for all female babies to be fully covered by wearing the face veil, commonly known as the burka, citing reports of little girls being sexually molested.

In a TV interview on the Islamic al-Majd TV, which seems to date back to mid-last year, Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, stressed that wearing the veil will protect baby girls. The Sheikh tried to back his assertion with claims of sexual molestation against babies in the kingdom, quoting unnamed medical and security sources.

Recently picked up on social media, Sheikh Dauod’s statement prompted wide condemnation from his fellow Saudis on Twitter. Some tweeps called for the Sheikh to be held accountable because his ruling denigrates Islam and breaches individual privacy.

Sheikh Mohammad al-Jzlana, former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, told Al Arabiya that Dauod’s ruling was denigrating to Islam and Shariah and made Islam look bad.

    How could you POSSIBLY denigrate islam at this point?
    It’s already a psychopathic cult for 10th century savage pedophiles. Where do you go from there?

    Anyone who thinks that a child needs to hide itself in order to avoid ‘arousing’ the adult male is admitting that they have a pedophile mindset themself.

    I have a better idea.
    Why not castrate all the males before reaching puberty?
    Sick bastards! I agree with JD.

    Of course it’s the baby’s fault because she tempts the grown man. It’s either the burka or stoning.
