Mohammad Swaiti, the Australian imam who created a world wide controversy over comments comparing women to “uncovered meat” has resigned his position today. His exact comment which began the controversy was:
“If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it..whose fault is it – the cats or the uncovered meat?
“The uncovered meat is the problem.”
The purpose of his comment? To suggest that a group of Muslim men recently jailed for many years for gang rapes were not entirely to blame. 7th century thinking personified.
