Malaysian Muslims: School Uniform Encourages Rape

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian group condemned the uniform worn by girls at government schools, saying it encouraged rape and pre-marital sex.

“The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction,” National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia vice-president Munirah Bahari said in a statement.

“It becomes a distraction to men, who are drawn to it, whether or not they like looking at it,” she said, calling for a review of uniform policy so that it did not violate Islamic ideals.

In multicultural Malaysia, home to majority-Muslim Malays as well as ethnic Chinese and Indians, female students at government schools have a choice of wearing a white blouse with a knee-length skirt or pinafore.

They may also wear a “baju kurung” and a headscarf is optional for Malay students.

Munirah said that “covering up” according to Islamic precepts was important to fend off social ills, including “rape, sexual harassment and even premarital sex.”

“This leads to babies born out of wedlock and, to an extent, even prostitution,” she said.

“Decent clothes which are not revealing can prevent and protect women from any untoward situations,” she said, suggesting that girls wear a blouse of a different colour or with an undergarment.

However, the girls themselves also came in for criticism, with the association saying that some used the white blouse to lure men.

“This is the source of the problem, where we can see that schoolgirls themselves are capable of using this to attract men to them,” Munirah said.

“This could see them getting molested, having premarital sex and all sorts of things.” – AFP

  1. i think u are the rapist as no one thinks the uniform is sexy, only you so far. So you should be the one who is keko and sex maniac.

  2. You think you are great from the eyes of muslim? we society think you are fagot and pervert to the extreme. I believe only Muslim thinks the uniform is sexy, non muslim never thought so. So please teach your fellow colleagues on what is non sexy and sexy. Society in the modern world does not need you such an arrogant and extreme bastard.

  3. SERIOUSLY, i think you’re over reacting!! i’m not saying you (Madam Munirah Bahari) should be open minded. But allow me to remind you, we’re living in a world where no safety can be guarantee. So instead of changing student uniform (i guess you’re refering chinese&indian girls), why dont you inform our precious little government to increase their effectiveness on this country’s security?? This sexy uniform issue shouldnt be publlished on newspaper as there’re lotsa other affairs in Malaysia to be solve! Nurin Jazlin did not wear sexy clothing while lepak-ing in pasar malam. SO, why on earth she’s being rape? Imunable to see the vision WAWASAN 2020 as the government had mentioned about it over and over again. How can a country acheive success when you Madam trying to protray this tiny-weeny issue as a big green monster trying to inject its poison into mens’mind then in turn, increase the number of raping cases in Malaysia? I’m sorry to say this but as a 18 year old student, i’ve never laid a single trust or confident on this country since i was young, it just simply doesnt inspire me.

    P/S: I hope you, Madam Munirah Bahari will be reading this. From the bottom of my heart, please do not try to fire up such issue like this as if it’s the BIGGEST MATTER in MALAYSIA. Thank you.

  4. You are an ignorant individual. How dare you blame we females for men being attracted to us (or you rather they turn gay?). Not only that, how in the world can you think that the school uniform is sexually appealing. As a government school student back in my high school and middle school days, I do not find that the uniforms are attractive.

    How dare you say that the uniforms that we have worn since forever will make the students prone to prostitution (stated in an article citing her, Yahoo Asian News)? If I’m not mistaken, none of my school mates, from primary to secondary, are prostitutes. They are all studying in reputable universities becoming doctors, engineers, scientists and other professionals.

    The manner that a woman dresses may affect the chances of rape, but also her ability to defend herself from such an occurrence. What you should be pushing for is for women to learn to protect themselves. You should teach them to walk in brightly lit places and never to walk alone anywhere. You should be focusing on allowing sex education in schools so pre-marital sex doesn’t result in unwanted babies. You should be hammering your religion into the muslim girls in the schools instead of trying to change the uniform they wear.

    P.s.: Your comments only make Malaysia look like a backwards country content on being less than a developed country.
