Submission + - Breastfeed your colleagues, says new fatwa

ramsun writes: A lecturer at the prestigious al-Azhar Islamic University in Cairo, Egypt, has been suspended after suggesting that one way to work around the Islamicist's ban on men and women working together could be to have the women symbolically breastfeed the men, which according to the Hadith, the Prophet Mohammed's sayings, creates a familial relationship. "The Dubai-based channel Al Arabiya quoted him as saying that after five breastfeedings the man and woman could be alone together without violating Islamic law and the woman could remove her headscarf to reveal her hair."

However, the Positive Liberty blog interprets this as Voltairean satire

What do you think? Should women breastfeed their male colleagues?
