Sana’a: A group of Yemeni clerics warned women from getting out of their homes. The order, they claim, is to protect society from “vice and sexual chaos”.
The clerics also said that political role for women contradicts Islamic values.
“We warn against opening the door for women, who will get out of their houses and mix with men,” the clerics stated in a booklet distributed during a meeting.
“Women getting out of their houses and mixing with men in places of work will lead to non-marital relations … loss of decency, adultery and illegal children,” the booklet said.
