Women who were attacked, robbed and raped during the New Year’s Eve attacks in Cologne were themselves responsible for their sexual assault by dressing inappropriately and wearing perfume, a local Muslim Imam said.
Speaking to Russian television station REN-TV, as reported in Breitbart UK, Imam Sami Abu-Yusuf, who is head of a Salafist Cologne mosque, said the women were “adding fuel to the fire” by dressing inappropriately and smelling nice.
Abu-Yasuf’s remarks came during a 12 minute segment bringing Russians up to date with the latest developments in the migrant invasion of Europe.
Explaining in the view of Salafist Islam why hundreds of women found themselves groped, sexually assaulted and in some cases raped by gangs of migrant men in cities across Germany, the Imam said, “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,” he added.
The emergence of Salafism in Europe is a major concern for security services, as it considers itself the most pure, and original form of Islam — the “true followers” of the Islamic faith. They obey the commands of the Koran literally, do not acknowledge local laws and are often found recruiting young people around train stations and where people gather.
“Salafists are trying to talk with unaccompanied youths who have come to Germany without their families and who are in particular need of support and connections,” a German officer said. “The Salafists are trying to use the desperate situation refugees find themselves in for their own goals.”
