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.
Great thing about living in Bratislava...No Muzies, and the streets are full of beautiful girls in short shorts or skirts, many times in high heals. I see more in one day then I would see back home in a year.
Last weekend, I rode my bicycle to a great lake with nude beaches ;) Try that in a Muzie country.
Hey if a woman wants to wear a habib great but if another one chooses to wear blue jeans then she should be free to do so.
Oh it is not America is it?
Good for you, many others do not think like you. I guess women don’t have that need to hide.
Very well put.
With a bit more effort, these people can probably be dragged — albeit kicking and screaming — into the 14th century.
Noisy flat shoes=flip flops.
We are not birds though. : )
The only benefit I see is Revlon and other companies would be irrelavant.
Cheaper to keep her covered.
As I assume there are nickel rubbing muslims.
Probably good advice in a Muslim country..
The council might want to address the unchecked primitive impulses of its knuckle-dragging neanderthals instead.
I guess the desert life is rough, or their demonic religion is.
Well, if you throw out the high heels and wear flats, you have a better chance of running away from danger.
All the men in the islamic culture need daily does of saltpeter to contain their natural urges since the islamic neanderthals get stirred up at the sight of lipstick and high heels.
Sorry, that’s “doses”
If it was an American subculture, we'd say it was psychologically dysfunctional ( severe co-dependence); but, since it's not, it's just multi-culturalism at work. All cultures are equal !
Well, at least they’re recommending sensible shoes. Can’t fault them for that.
“Many Muslim women sincerely believe that wearing hijab prevents rape.”
Similar to the way liberals believe not carrying a gun will prevent rapes?
Personally, I’d take a Colt .45 over a hijab any day :p
“If they want to follow the 100 percent Islamic way, it’s up to them.”
” in an effort to prevent rape and protect women’s dignity and morals.”
why don’t they ever finish the sentence?
It should read “protect women’s dignity and morals from disgusting, hateful, abusive, inhumane muslim men...”
The compliment is worth extra coming from you, sir. Thanks!
When in doubt blame the woman. Thats how it works in that sick culture. If one of those women was to get raped she could be the one charged. Our “ally” Saudi Arabia loves to do things like that.
