Do you think what you wear actually invites others to sexually violate you?

Well, according to an ustaz, women who "tak tutup aurat (do not cover up)" deserve it if they were sexually violated.

His statement of course drew plenty of criticism from netizens and also DAP Socialist Youth committee member, Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud.

"Dear ustaz, the one that is dead wrong with our society is not what ppl wear but your lack of respect for consent, your abusive mentality against women, (and) you think you are right and holy to teach people," she tweeted.

"Nobody deserves to be sexually violated, even if they walk around naked.

"Clothes are not an indication of sexual consent," she said.

The one-minute video showed the ustaz speaking to a group of people in a lecturer hall.

It is learnt that the lecture was part of a marriage course conducted by the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) last weekend (April 27-28).

So, what do you think? Does what a woman wear indicate anything?
