Submission + - Saudis Reject Burkas for Babies (alarabiya.net)

Copper Nikus writes: An article in alarabiya describes the controversy around a Saudi cleric's fatwa calling for all female babies to wear burkas. The motivation for this fatwa is allegations of sexual molestation of female babies in the kindgon. Wearing the veil is supposed to protect the baby girls from horny Saudi men. There has been wide condemnation of the fatwa from fellow Saudis on Twitter. The ultra conservative Saudi government is also calling for people to ignore the fatwa on grounds that it hasn't been approved by official channels.
