An Egyptian lawyer who said that women, including his own daughter, deserved to be raped for wearing torn jeans has been imprisoned for three years.
Nabih al-Wahsh has been fined and imprisoned after provoking outrage with his comments during a talk show in his home country last month.
Wahsh said that it was part of the "national duty" to rape women who wore such garments because they "invited men to harbad them."
Despite the negative reaction, Wahsh refused to back down and even released a statement update to another media website where he said that "his daughter would also deserve it [rape, badual harbadment] if she decided to wear jeans that are ripped off of the back".
The BBC reports that its fine was 20,000 Egyptian pounds, or about £ 840.
During his original interview on the Infirad Show, Wahsh said that his point of view was even more valid if the jeans were torn off from the back, according to Al Arabiy.
"Girls must respect themselves so that others respect them," he said.
"Protecting morale is more important than protecting borders."
The brave guests of the show tried to fight against Wahsh's views after being outraged by his comments.
The debate was broadcast on October 19 on the Al-Assema satellite channel while the guests They discussed the draft law of the country that fights prostitution and debauchery.
