Authorities in a northern Malaysian city are calling on Muslim women not to wear bright lipstick and noisy high-heel shoes if they want to follow the "Islamic way".
The municipal council in Kota Baru, run by a conservative Islamic party, is distributing pamphlets with the advice, in an effort to prevent rape and protect women's dignity and morals.
Council spokesman Azman Mohamad Daham said: 'We just distribute pamphlets. Our minimum guideline is they must wear headscarves.
'The rest is up to them. If they want to follow the 100 percent Islamic way, it's up to them.'

Sick totalitarian bastards.
isn’t that thoughtful? /s
What a horrible “culture,” where they advertise that the men are so barbaric that a woman can’t even wear lipstick for fear of being attacked. Ugh.
Just clone them all to look like Helen Thomas, then there would be no chance of rape.
Many Muslim women sincerely believe that wearing hijab prevents rape.
Excellent study in international law for Justice Kennedy to site in his next ruling on equal rights.
When the “peaceful” exceed 2% of any general population, they cease becoming “peaceful” and revert to the natural state of Islam — repressive, sexist, and tyrannical.
Sounds like the people here that say women shouldn’t dress provacatively because it looks like they’re asking for it. I guess different folks got different ideas of provacative.
Being raped is bad enough, but it is being killed by the husband or father that really sucks about it.
Probably because if they see you without one, they’ll send in someone to rape you......and then they’ll stone you for not wearing it. Nice “custom”.
Of course, the NAGS won’t mention a word about this.
With no self control.
Only “noisy high heel” shoes? What about cork-soled high-heel shoes, or noisy flat shoes?
But seriously, I suggest the ladies wear guns.
Advice or warning?
I like how they are so fearful of men having sinful thoughts, they just jump right to punishing the women.
Rather than look inward and address issues within yourself, force others to change and fit your needs.
Is this 2008, or 1008? I seem to have time warped.
Because there IS no rape in the muslim world.
Well, there is, but there are no rape victims because they are murdered by their families in honor killings.
It is battered woman syndrome. “Maybe if I wear it ALL the time, he won’t beat me next time.”
There was a woman who wanted a divorce because her husband PEAKED at her while she was sleeping. He’d never seen her face.
I like your style.
I don’t believe that women who dress provocatively are “asking for it”. But I do believe that dress for attention sometimes gets the unwanted type of attention. Notice that most female birds are drab colored to help hide them on their nests.
