‘Chastity Belts Can Thwart Rape and Incest’

HULU TERENGGANU: Women should wear chastity belts to thwart rape and incest which are rampant nowadays, a well-respected religious figure here suggested. 

Datuk Abu Hassan Din Al-Hafiz said chastity belts would protect victims and also help reduce sex crime rate.  

“We have even come across a number of unusual sex cases, where even senior citizens and children are not spared. The best way to avert sex perpetrators is to wear protection,” he told his audience at the Maal Hijrah Forum in Kampung Pelandan here last night. 

“My intention is not to offend women but to safeguard them from sex maniacs. Probably, this is the best way,” he said. 

“Besides, husbands could also feel more secure, if you know what I mean,” he added. 

Abu Hassan said the practice of wearing chastity belts could be traced to as recent as the mid-1960s.
