PETALING JAYA: A four-year-old video recording of PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat saying women who did not cover up deserve to be raped has gone viral.
Nik Aziz said in the 5.47-minute clip that those who did not cover their aurat were tempting men to rape them. (Aurat is part of the body that must not be exposed in public in accordance with Islamic belief.)
“She did not cover her aurat, and got raped. Serves her right for being raped (dah dia buka aurat, dirogol, padanlah muka dirogol).
“She is selling cheap... her calf, her face, her thigh...rape lah,” he said in his speech recorded four years ago.
The video recording resurfaced on various blogs after MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek recently reminded Nik Aziz of his speech about how the eyes were linked to sexual organs and temptations.
Various blogs started to carry links to Nik Aziz's video after Pakatan Rakyat leaders, including Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, labelled Dr Chua as being “anti-Islam”.
Dr Chua had said that he was merely quoting what Nik Aziz had said in his speech made in 2008.
Among the blogs that had uploaded Nik Aziz' infamous speech are justread-whatever.blogspot.com, stopthelies.my, 1sya.com, and malaysiapeoplevoice.wordpress.com.
In the short speech, Nik Aziz who is also the Kelantan Mentri Besar, said the RM70,000 spent on their campaign to promote the covering of aurat was justified because it also helped check adultery.
“The eyes are inter-connected with sexual organs. Covering aurat automatically reduces adultery, reduces rape, reduces HIV, reduces AIDS, reduces incidents of marriage falling apart,” said Nik Aziz.
Nik Aziz also took a swipe at the media for making such a big fuss over rape cases and number of AIDS cases while at the same time encouraging people not to cover up their aurat.
“You (the media) are the one giving opportunity to the rakyat to expose aurat,” he said.
The malaysiapeoplevoice pointed out that the speech bear evidence to PAS' real ideology, as Nik Aziz had clearly stated that those who exposed their aurat deserved to be raped.
