Yesterday, this article was published in the The Jersulesum Post at international.jpost.com.
It tells of a tailor’s shop in northwest Pakistan, being blown up by armed operatives who bombed because the shop was making “Western clothes”. Supposedly the shop owner had been warned to stop making those un-Islamic styles. No one was reported to have been hurt.
According to the story the men in the village of Kasi, located in the Bajur region along the Afghan border, traditionally wear “simple baggy pants and shirt” and the women wear burka (spelled in the story as “burqa”) outside their homes.
OK, we know that women have been killed for not wearing the burka. I’ve always wondered about the penalty for men who don clothes styled in a “non-Islamic” manner.
Here we have the ultimate answer brought to us by the real Style Police.
And we think we have problems with fitting pants correctly!
