Saudi cleric wants babies to wear burkas

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. 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. Sheikh Dauod’s statement prompted wide condemnation from his fellow Saudis on Twitter. Sheikh Mohammad Al-Jzlana, former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, told Al Arabiya that Dauod’sabies ruling was denigrating to Islam and Shariah and made Islam look bad.
