Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Al-Hunaity delivered a Friday sermon in which he criticized the call for women's rights, such as the right to work, to travel without a male guardian, or to make decisions about whether to give birth or to have sex with her husband. During the sermon, delivered at the Abd Al-Rahman Abu Hassan Mosque in Amman on March 9, he said that "the number of rapes in Afghanistan multiplied exponentially after the American occupation," and that the "brothers of apes and pigs" affronted Muslim women. "Did they not hit the elderly women who defended the honor of the nation, of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and other sites? Did they not beat them with shoes as despicable and filthy as their faces?" he said. The sermon was posted on YouTube.

Following are excerpts:

 

Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Al-Hunaity: They want rights for women. They want women to travel without a male guardian. They want women to go to work, and to provide for their husbands and children. They want women to give birth according to their own decision. They want women to enrage their husbands so that they will divorce them. This is why they decided that if a man wants [to have sex] with his wife, at a time when the wife doesn't want to, it is considered rape and is punishable by law, and so on.

[…]

Studies show that the number of rapes in Afghanistan multiplied exponentially after the American occupation, which was said to have brought freedom to women there.  What did the brothers of apes and pigs do, on TV screens, in front of cameras, and before our very eyes? Did they not affront the Muslim woman? Did they not hit the elderly women who defended the honor of the nation, of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and other sites? Did they not beat them with shoes as despicable and filthy as their faces?
