Shocking news comes to us from the Malaysia parliament. Namely, a senator from the country’s ruling coalition, Mohamad Imran Abdul Hamid, made a controversial comment during a debate in parliament’s upper house on Wednesday.
“I propose… a sexual harassment act to protect men from the actions, words and clothing of women, which can cause men to be seduced to the point they can commit acts such as incest, rape, molestation, (watching) pornography. This is important, we (men) need to be protected. The actions, clothing of women can seduce us into breaking the law.” – said the retired admiral.
This sparked great criticism around the country and even the leader of his own People’s Justice Party, Anwar Ibrahim, called on him to retract them.
Fortunately, he apologized and withdraw his statement saying: “Although my intention was sincere, I did not expect it to be perceived as a huge mistake that offended many women and men as well.”
Marina Mahathir, a woman’s rights activist and the daughter of the country’s prime minister, harshly judged his staments. He’s giving excuses for men behaving badly. It just points to the type of toxic environment that women in politics, and in other areas, have to live in.”- she continues.
