 Islamic Cleric Says Women Should Not be Allowed to Eat Bananas and Cucumbers

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.
