Increase in rape a result of indecent dressing – MURIC



Increase in rape a result of indecent dressing - MURIC

Ishaq Akintola, President Muslim Rights Concern

An Islamic Group Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has blamed the increase in reported rape cases on women dressing indecently.

According to Punch, it was said in a statement released by the group in response to a protest on rape staged by another group War Against Rape (WAR).

Members of WAR had staged the protest at the office of the Lagos State Governor Akinwumi Ambode, decrying the increase in rape cases in the state.

Ishaq Akintola, president of MURIC said in the statement that the protest was a waste of time.

He called on WAR to launch a campaign against indecent dressing, and asked women to stop exposing their “Allah-given ‘delicacies.'”

Read the statement below:

Rape is on the increase mainly because moral bankruptcy has hit its peak. Women are no longer ashamed of exposing their bodies in public.

Even dresses which do not expose their bodies are sewn so tight that no one is left in doubt about the objective. It is the age of dress-to-kill. But women forget that many of them will fall victim of stray bullets.

Indecent dressing is a provocation and this is the issue which decent societies must address. MURIC invites WAR to launch a campaign against indecent dressing. The way you dress is the way you will be addressed. You cannot send out a letter without receiving a reply.

WAR should tell women to elevate their self-dignity. Why do they pose half-nude in adverts, magazine covers, etc? Why are women so willing to expose their Allah-given ‘delicacies’ to naked eye.

Women who elect to cut their blouses low at the front and their skirts outrageously short above the thighs have deliberately entered into a contract with men who are sick upstairs.

Women should be told in clear and unequivocal terms that indecent dressing constitutes sexual harassment.

    So why are conservative Sharia states awhere women can’t show ankles the states with the highest rape rates? (Especially if you include under age marriage by old men) “Rape existed before mini skirts” and rape has never been about dressing, or children, schoolgirls in uniforms, underfed housegirls and women in burkas would never be raped

    Isiaki abi wetin u call dt ur mohammed given name. You can run your mouth the way you want by blaming the rape victim of been the cause of her own ordeal. Nigeria is a zoo where there is no law that protects its citizens. Go to Europe and see how women dress almost naked and confidently walk on the road anytime any day yet their rate of rape cases is close to 0%. This is because they have a strong law that has a strong punishment for any rapist, so that next time you see a woman you will not dream of assaulting her let alone raping her. Our politicians,mostly the ones from Northern Nigeria are paedophiles so they wont bother to make a law to castrate any devil called rapist.

      I live in the UK, rape rate isn’t almost zero, it happens a lot! It should not be blamed on indecent dressing though. No means NO

    Statements like this are increasingly daft, No stat backs this statement up. What is the excuse with a place like India? are men savages that just rape any woman that shows skin.

    I guess our grandfathers were the biggest rapists because many Africans wore few clothes. back then. I have seen many pictures of topless African women from those days & others in loin cloth. In fact I’ve watched documentary about many parts of Africa where people don’t are almost naked but they’re not raping all the women. Men like this act like all men are beasts & I don’t appreciate that. I’m blessed with several men in my life who have self control. If you’re a pervert speak for yourself ok?

    WOW. We went to protest increase in rape and molestation of children and minors and this supposed human right group said it’s because the victims were indecently dressed? A group of boys broke into a 14 year old girl’s house to rape her but she was indecently dressed right? I’m surprised our media houses allowed such gibberish to fly.

    I agree with him!!! Rape is such a sensitive issue that once people have an option different from the regular ,we are quick to criticize.Nowhere in this article did he say people who dress indecently should be raped so you guys calm your titties. THE WAY YOU DRESS IS THE WAY YOU SHALL BE ADDRESSED!! The way girls dress these days to weddings ???!!!!!! a word is enough for the wise.

      Read some books, watch documentaries, explore the world around you and most importantly, spend time thinking so that in the future, you won’t open your mouth and spew out such rubbish and embarrass yourself.

      Don’t let your low self esteem and hatred of women who have differing moral standards from you blind your logic. You may be one of those women who dress decently not for God but for male approval and for a man to think you’re wife material, but you see instagram models and even runs girls get married before you and that is paining you. Go back to the drawing board and ask yourself why you would be so hateful of your fellow women. You think dressing indecently is a sin, fine, but so is hatred and judging them. Men are not wild animals, this same man will go to Canada and see a woman wearing shorts, but not dare to rape her because he knows there are repercussions. Children and teenagers under the age of 17 are the highest percentage of rape victims, so does dressing have anything to do with the mass abuse of young school girls, hawkers, nannies and babies, 54% of which are raped by people they know? No one deserves to be raped, it’s an act of extreme violence and invasion, how a woman dresses has nothing to do with it. A woman is attractive whether or not she is fully clothed, because the man knows she has a vagina and can fulfil the basic desire of intercourse, and dressing has nothing to do with that. A woman’s bust or bum size will always show through no matter what she’s wearing, and I repeat, stop making excuses for men, they are not wild animals. What is evil should never be justified

      You are a caveman. You should be in a medieval dungeon. Toddlers that are raped dress indecently too abi? Your so called “manhood” should be cut, diced, fried and given to you to eat.

    fancynancy so even 3 years old dress indecently? Its only sick people that rape, there is no excuse for RAPE at all. The young girl that was raped and killed some weeks ago was done in her house.

    I’m more interested in knowing the rock Ishaq Akintola crawled out from than anything else! In 2017 you still blame what the woman wears as being the core reason for rape than undertaking a concise mental evaluation of the thought-process of its architect? Regardless of how she dresses, a rapist will still rape! The 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 year old being raped are they scantily dressed as well? This is troubling. This is unacceptable. This is most unfortunate. We need to launch a campaign to get this man into Yaba left to assess the extent of his sanity!

    In as much we all want to crucify him, there is a bit of truth in what he has said. We live in a country that is mostly lawless, not every man walking on the road is sane & not everyone has self control. Indecent dressing is just one of the several factors that can lead to rape, so we must protect ourselves as best as we can. You won’t say for example, that because the government has put a death penalty on robbery then you’ll leave your front door open n go to bed.

    • Denzel thinks Nigerian women should stop excusing lousy male behaviour

      August 7, 2017 at 2:34 pm

      You really do think dressing has anything to do with it, meanwhile most rape in Nigeria happens in the home and workplace. A man knows an attractive woman and will rape her if he’s a rapist. He doesn’t need to see cleavage to know that the woman is busty or bootiful. That’s not how the male imagination works. Making excuses for rapists is funny because you think your so called decent dressing will spare you from Rape, when indeed, the only reason you haven’t been raped is because you have been fortunate and blessed not to meet one. Imagine you’re a rape victim and someone is bringing up your dressing as an excuse.

    Anybody that thinks rape should succeed indecent dressing or thinks “this man is making a point” does not deserve walking around like the rest of us. They should be checked into a psychiatric centre, rehab facility or more befitting, a zoo, because you are an animal. A wild animal.

    Very nice crusade
    Also include among your objective
    1. War against child marriage
    2. War against codeine and other drug abuse
    Not only war against indecent dressing
    Besides you don’t need the threat of rape to convince women to dress well
    Just teach your daughters and the members of your council that their positions in society demand that they dress decently.
    God bless you

    Now in Germany ?? girls less than 10 years old that walk near refugee/migrant centers are “provoking” the Muslims to commit rape……funny how the Christian or Animist Africans don’t have this issue even though they’re oftentimes the same race….. oh but it’s “racist” to call Muslims out on it as if that makes any sense?‍♂️…….

  22. Indecent dressing does not = rape

    I’m really disappointed by your statement omote. Even in robbery cases, most victim open their padlocked doors willingly; so please don’t even make such comparison. Children and babies are being raped daily and are not indecently dressed, they don’t even have butt or breast to attract a man. Northern and Indian women are usually extremely well covered but Still have the highest number of rape cases.
