A Saudi cleric's declaration that babies should wear burkas to protect them from sexual attacks has drawn widespread criticism.
Sheikh Abdullah Daoud said all female newborns should wear a full face veil in an interview with an Islamic television station.
He told al-Majd TV that wearing a burka would stop incidents of sexual attacks on babies, and tried to support his claim by quoting unnamed medical and security sources.
The interview took place last year, but it was picked up by Al Arabiya news and social media websites at the weekend, provoking outrage and comments that such claims damage the reputation of Saudi Arabia and Islam.
WOW Saudi Arabia you really amazed me!!!!!!
