If the women have any sense of dignity, they should shove some bananas and cucumbers up this Mullah's sorry a$$...

This "unnamed sheikh" seems to be a prankster mocking the fatwa-prone mullahs. I must say however that those fatwa-mongering mullahs do deserve to be mocked.

He also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women, cause these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male penis” and hence could arouse women or “make them think of sex.” 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.
What if his wife thinking of his 'penis whilst handling a banana or cucumber is also thinking of slicing it with a knife!!. Ha..Ha..Ha

The un-named Sheikh has too much time. He ought to be spending much more of his time then in the service of the lord, instead it appears his thoughts are mostly about sex and women. Looking to control it ONLY and ONLY via the women - since boys will be boys (especially since he is a boy to begin with and there are always non-islamic women in his service for his fun and games).


What about the Eggplant (Aubergine)? Ban it for the men, as it might give them visions of women's anatomy. There goes the Baba Ganouj, a great middle eastern dish.

Women shouldnt wear highheels bcoz they seduce men
women with "seductive" eyes should cover them
women shouldntdrive cars bcoz it makes them lose virginity

And now bananas & cucumebrs are forbidden fruits !  
Never had these kind of thoughts ! SIGH ...

You're here to call your co-bloggers retards when they said nothing agaisnt you ? After going through the list of moronic fatwas being issued day after day, why cant this be so ? Instead of making stupid remarks, why cant there be a clarification on why this couldnt have been the case.

Heres the Bikya-masr's news item. Theres a link to el-Sawsana (stupid spelling confusion) news in the same newsitem of Bkyamasr. Here I've pasted it. Use Google translator. And we've an apologist, Sheila Musaji, from US writing she couldnt find the originalsource. Actually Bikya-masr provided a correction and link was given to the arabic article. Apparently, Our heroine from american-muslim site seems not to have taken cognisance of it

"Retards" we are ..... ! :-O

My Comment No: 4: -  "This "unnamed sheikh" seems to be a prankster mocking the fatwa-prone mullahs. I must say however that those fatwa-mongering mullahs do deserve to be mocked."

My Comment No: 29 on December 7 (when someone posted the same item in a different discussion) -  "The cleric is disoriented! He thinks today is April 1st."

People may not be retarded, but when they do not have their thinking caps on, they may appear to be retarded. In any case I could not have meant you, because my comment was posted before yours.

Anwaar,

 I'm not interested in prolonging this discussion. But plz bear in mind that its not those whom you dislike are the ones who are posting here. Calling them something as "retarded" is unwarranted

I could not have meant you, because my comment was posted before yours

I know that, but by the same logic, it is immediately after Indrani's and Gajanan's posts. What does that say? This is what I was mentioning.
Anyway, I'll keep myself off from such subjects. Why should I bother ? 

Lopamudra,

Thats why original-source link   :)    -- no sarcasm in this smiley plz !

Are we already headed for the stone age? It would be appropriate muslim justice to collect all the cucumbers and bannans in the world and shove them up this sheikh,s you know where.That should satisfy him more than the views he has expressed

Anwaar,

'Retarded' is a strong word in this context, when it seems to be very much probable.

Sangeetha,

I still think its prank, or else, there would have been flooding news items from our ever over  proactive media on who where when and so on The absence of follow up stories strengthens the conviction that its prank.

Were you born stupid or has this obtuseness worsened with time? What makes a banana/cucumber fatwa a prank, and a birthday fatwa a serious discourse on religion by a trained Maulvi? How is one to assume the former is a prank, if the latter is not?

 Doesn't matter if the fatwa is true or a hoax or a prank. It is a good joke and we all had a good laugh and we must now move on. Thank God that there is no fatwa (again either true or a hoax) that men should not handle melons while shopping.

Silly fatwas are not uncommon. But something that is so obviously made up should not fool us. That's the point I wanted to make although i know that none of those who commented on it is really retarded.

Hopefully, in another 10 years there will be no virgins in Saudi Arabia too. That's good.

No 72 Virgins lined up ready and willing to serve the prospective suicide bomber.

That means no more suicide attacks anywhere in the world unless some maulvi comes up with some other brilliant enticement for those "retarded" sucide bombers.

As Editor of Bikyamasr.com, I am disappointed that I did not catch and hold this piece. The “Islamic cleric bans women from touching cucumbers, bananas for sexual resemblance,” article should not have run when it did. Arguably, it should not have been run at all. We should not have published about an “unnamed sheikh” in an unnamed European country unless we were able to garner more information on the issue, both on the sheikh himself and the news website the information was gathered from, independently.

We realize that as a growing news organization with a growing reputation and readership, we have an increased responsibility to not only verify our own material at the highest levels, but further investigate the quotes and articles of other news organizations before referencing their work.

This is our error. We apologize for the poor judgment on the matter. It is inexcusable. While the exact quote reported by Assawsana.com may well have been exactly what it was reported to be by that website, without a name and location behind this person and comment, it is difficult to find the information credible.

We recognize our pitfalls and their repercussions. The fact that this story was quoted by a large number of news organizations across the globe shows that our error in judgment can have serious, detrimental effects. For this, we would like to apologize to our readers for the inadequate editorial judgment I, as Editor and Founder, made in this instance.
