Video which went viral shows Pakistani Muslim claiming that women wearing jeans are to blame for devastating earthquakes, acts of terrorism and rising levels of inflation. Maulana Fazlur Rehman , who is also leader of the junior party in Islamabad’s ruling coalition, said ‘immodest women’ are responsible for a whole host of recent disasters around the world.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, because the Qur'an says she has only half of a brain. In Shari'a courts woman will not receive the right to self-defense without at least 2 witnesses who support her testimony (because she has only half a brain).
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
