Islamic cleric names forbidden list of foods for women to touch.
n a story reported on Egyptian news website, Bikya Masr, an unnamed Islamic cleric living in Europe was quoted saying that women should not get close to bananas, carrots, cucumbers, courgettes, in order to avoid any 'sexual thoughts'. The cleric said that these fruits and vegetables 'resemble the male penis' and could arouse women or 'make them think of sex,'
The Sheikh said that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male relative, should cut the items into small pieces and serve.
