the most ridiculous news item of the week

  • As many people are probably aware, in Saudi Arabia women are required by law to wear a burqa once they reach puberty
  • However, a sheikh in the country has now suggested that baby girls should wear a burqa
  • The reason for this? – to protect them from sexual abuse
  • Sadly this is yet another example of asking a highly vulnerable segment of the population to take responsibility for perpetrators failing to regulate their own behaviour
