In yet another bizarre statement, a European Islamic cleric told an Egyptian news website that women should be kept away from food items such as bananas and cucumbers as they could arouse sexual thought.

Speaking to the Egyptian website Bikya Masr, the unnamed cleric said that the shape of a banana or a cucumber resembled a penis and it could make women have sexual thoughts. The cleric added that if the women did like to eat the fruits, then they should be served by a male related to them and should first be cut into pieces, the Times of India reported.

"If women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve", the cleric said.

While the latest dikat has been scorned by a large section of Muslim internet users, there has been no official response from other renowned Islamic scholars.

Those people who give such fatwa's are absolutely bullshit.Islam being such a practical religion,is being mis-marketable by such so called scholars.The ideal reference is Quran,so no need someone who will show us what is right and what is wrong ?

That won't work either. Homosexuality is illegal under Islamic law, so the men will have to banned from touching them also, lest they be corrupted and become homosexuals. What about Peachs and Mangos they resemble boobs - are men to banned from touching them - then there's the mango seed and cut figs - they absolutely have to be banned.
