June 24, 2013, (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese MP, Dafa’a Allah Hasab Al-Rasool, has submitted a motion to a parliamentary subcommittee to ban women’s sport in Sudan, saying that it is against Shari’a (Islamic Law).

But the parliamentary subcommittee which issued a report in response to the Youth and Sports’ minister testimony before the national assembly declined to include his motion in its report.

Dafa’a Allah, who complained about ignoring his motion in the report, addressed MP’s saying “you should remember your daughters’ honor; I made this motion to protect your daughters and wives”.

The committee’s report called upon the Youth and Sports ministry to commit itself to the Islamic guidelines on women’s sport as provided by the Islamic Fiqh (jurisprudence) Academy.

Dafa’a Allah who is dubbed in the local media as the “controversial” MP, is known for his support for female circumcision. He once described uncircumcised women as “dirty”.

Last month, he demanded the parliament to adopt a motion calling for polygamy, saying that it is the only way to produce more males in the society to support the army and defend the country against the rebel groups.

Females can defend nation against foreign enemies ,Eritreans females have done that during liberation. sorry for those who elected this chicken-head MP to Sudanese parliament.

      No wonders why Sudan has never got off trouble with itself and the world at large. Sudan got trouble triggers at the top level of Government and that is why there is no even a single turtle move for the nation out off chorionic coma. Darfur, Nuba Mt, and Blue Nile are on the way to replicate South Sudan Self-determination.

    I wonder sometimes how these clowns make their way into such powerful positions. I am not sure whether to laugh or cry. This is called making an azz out of oneself.
