Politician Maulana Fazlur Rehman has commanded the military to take action on “immodest women”, who he blamed for recent terror attacks.
Ulema-e-Islami Fazi leader Rehman also said that women who wear jeans are responsible for rising inflation and other disasters, according to reports.
He demanded that uncovered women wear sacks and stay inside their homes – so the Taliban doesn’t attack Pakistan.
He said: “The Taliban are our brothers and their angst against the state is justified.
“As brother Ansar Abbasi has so eloquently put in the past: TTP’s suicide bombings are just Allah’s wrath upon us.
“And so there is a need to earmark and eliminate the real enemy of Pakistan: every woman who wears jeans.”
Clerics in the Middle East have recently made a string of bizarre proclamations recently.
Islamic police in Iran banned spiky hair over claims it is linked to “devil worship”.
And an Islamic scholar reportedly issued a command that women owe their husbands sex at all times – even when riding on camels.
