Femen calls for ‘Topless Jihad Day’ after death-by-stoning threats to Tunisian woman for topless pics

Washington, Mar. 29 (ANI): Infamous Ukrainian feminists group Femen has declared April 4 as Topless Jihad Day in support of a Tunisian activist, 19, who was threatened to death by stoning after she posted two topless pictures online.

The Femen group said ‘long live the topless jihad against infidels! Our tits are deadlier than your stones!’

According to the New York Daily News, countless women have posted photos on the Femen Facebook page in solidarity of Amina Tyler.

Femen also called on women to bare their breasts as a show of solidarity.

Femen said that this day will mark the beginning of a new, genuine Arab Spring, after which true freedom, freedom without mullahs and caliphs, will come to Tunisia.

According to the report, the jihad is intended to further the group’s indictment of ‘misogyny – Islamic or otherwise’ that Amina catapulted to international attention with a topless picture of herself, with ‘F-k your morals’ sprawled boldly across her torso.

The message of Amina’s chest read: “My body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honor”.

A second image showed Amina reading a book and holding a cigarette with a message in Arabic: “My body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honor.”

Amina’s protest outraged conservatives of Tunisian society. Tunisian newspaper Assabah News quoted Almi Adel, who heads the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, as saying that Amina should die for taking the photos.

He said that the young lady should be punished according to sharia, with 80 to 100 lashes, but (because of) the severity of the act she has committed, she deserves be stoned to death.

A petition defending Amina already garnered more than 100,000 supporters, including noted evolutionary biologist and prominent atheist Richard Dawkins, the report added. (ANI)
