A Cologne imam has said the victims of the New Years Eve mob sex attacks had themselves to blame because they wore perfume. Sami Abu-Yusuf added that he was not surprised the girls were sexually assaulted, groped and raped, because of the way they dressed.
Hundreds of women were attacked by a mob of men in Cologne’s city centre on New Years Eve, with the number of alleged sexual assaults now tallying up to 521, including 3 rapes. He told a Russian TV that: “The events of New Year’s Eve were the girls own fault, because they were half naked and wearing perfume.
It is not surprising the men wanted to attack them. Dressing like that is like adding fuel to the fire.” Sami Abu-Yusuf is the Imam of the Al Tawheed mosque in Cologne, preaching Salafism – an ultra-conservative form of Sunni Islam.
