School uniform sexy, says group

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian group condemned the uniform worn by girls at government schools, saying it encouraged rape and pre-marital sex.

“The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction,” National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia vice-president Munirah Bahari said in a statement.

“It becomes a distraction to men, who are drawn to it, whether or not they like looking at it,” she said, calling for a review of uniform policy so that it did not violate Islamic ideals.

In multicultural Malaysia, home to majority-Muslim Malays as well as ethnic Chinese and Indians, female students at government schools have a choice of wearing a white blouse with a knee-length skirt or pinafore.

They may also wear a “baju kurung” and a headscarf is optional for Malay students.
Munirah said that “covering up” according to Islamic precepts was important to fend off social ills, including “rape, sexual harassment and even premarital sex.”

“This leads to babies born out of wedlock and, to an extent, even prostitution,” she said.
“Decent clothes which are not revealing can prevent and protect women from any untoward situations,” she said, suggesting that girls wear a blouse of a different colour or with an undergarment.

However, the girls themselves also came in for criticism, with the association saying that some used the white blouse to lure men.

“This is the source of the problem, where we can see that schoolgirls themselves are capable of using this to attract men to them,” Munirah said.

“This could see them getting molested, having premarital sex and all sorts of things.” – AFP

seals: Should we ban white cloth all together? We make a law under police act to arrest all who wears, sell or distribute white cloth. That will solve rape and molest not only for school girls but also for the people for Malaysia.

When you close up the mind of the children and you treat sex as forbidden, it creates curiosity and that kills the cat. Give proper sex education that will help all.

It distracts men? How did it distracts man to rape a girl with scarf? Is wearing tudung (head scarf) also distracts men? If the weakness is at man, why punish girls? There were many cases where girls with head scarf and covered was raped? Even old ladies were raped, hmmm I wander what white cloth could have turn the men up with these old ladies.

Premature sex is because of lack of sex education and un managed desires and more...and "“This leads to babies born out of wedlock and, to an extent, even prostitution,” she said.". How can replacing white cloth helps?
