CAIRO (Web Desk) – An Islamic professor from Al-Azhar University has allegedly claimed Muslim men are allowed by Allah to rape non-Muslim women in order to “humiliate” them.

Islamic Scholar Saud Saleh’s TV interview has opened up a new gate for hot debate in western countries, Pak Record reported.

Saleh appears to try to discourage the purchase of slaves from Asian countries for sex, claiming Allah has given Muslim men a “legitimate” way to have sexual relations with slave women.

It is believed she claimed the only “legitimately owned slaves come from among prisoners from a war”.

Saleh allegedly said: “The female prisoners of wars are ‘those whom you own’.

“In order to humiliate them, they become the property of the army commander, or of a Muslim, and he can have sex with them just like he has sex with his wives.”
