KUANTAN: Malaysian women must not be duped into joining the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) as "comfort women" as there is no such thing in Islam, said Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim.
The Women, Family and Community Development Minister said Islam never taught that women should become objects to satisfy the sexual lust of others and to put themselves in harm's way.
"I am very upset by news report saying that Malaysian women had joined the militants to perform 'sexual jihad'.
"I am not sure whether the report is true or not but I urge Malaysian women not to be tricked into participating. This will only tarnish the dignity of women," Rohani said after closing a court-ordered community service integration camp in Felda Bukit Kuantan here Thursday.
It was reported that the police were now checking the veracity of an online news portal report that Malaysian women had joined Isis to offer so-called Jihad Al-Nikah (sexual jihad) to militants.
Rohani said it was a shame that religion had been misused to besmirch the honour of women.
