Turkish Islamic Preacher Says Men Without Beards Cause ‘Indecent Thoughts’ In Other Men Because They Look Like Women




'You could be possessed by indecent thoughts': Murat Bayaral made the inflammatory comments on television on SaturdayA preacher in Turkey has said that men should grow beards to make clear they are not women.

Islamic speaker Murat Bayaral spoke on TV show Fatih Medreseleri this weekend, slamming men without beards.

Bayaral said: ‘Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard,’ according to Hurriyet Daily News.

‘For example, if you see a man with long hair from afar you may think he is a woman if he does not have a beard. Because nowadays women and men dress similarly.

‘God forbid! You could be possessed by indecent thoughts.’

The criticism of beardless men has brought backlash.

Magdalena Kirchner, who is a fellow at the Istanbul Policy Center, said that outbursts like Bayaral’s are not uncommon. ‘Turkish debates on piety and modesty reoccur frequently,’ she told Newsweek.
