Pakistan: earthquakes caused by women wearing jeans

Oops, the original source has retracted the story. Apparently it was satire–the Pakistani version of the Onion.

jeans and hijabA Pakistani cleric has declared that women wearing jeans are the cause of earthquakes, the Baluchistan crisis, lack of energy supply, and the deteriorating security situation.

Fazlur Rehman went on to say that a woman who is not covered like a ‘sack of flour’ is a mobile weapon of mass destruction for her state and that Pakistan has multitude of such nuclear missiles in all its major cities….

Rehman then openly requested the army chief and the prime minister to openly declare war against Pakistani women and launch a military operation.

For those who don’t mind earthquakes, here are some 30 photos showing how to make the earth move with a hijab and jeans ” chic or little funky look”.

For anyone trying to puzzle out the meaning of the linked article, the cleric’s name is Fazlur Rehman or Fazal-ur-Rehman. You can see how he dresses below (with the yellow headgear). “Chief Maulana” or Mawlānā is a religious title.  His political party is named Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) or JUI(F).  And no, this gem is not in his Wikipedia article.
