Muslim Cleric Declares that Selfies are a Sin

And would you guess that he specifically blames women for this?

A young Indonesian young cleric is taking a stand against selfies. In a 17- point manifesto posted on Twitter last week, popular Indonesian author and speaker Felix Siauw argued that taking a selfie often means succumbing to pride, arrogance, and ostentation—all of which make them a sin under Islam, according to Siauw.

He specifically criticizes Muslim women, writing, “These days many Muslim women are taking selfies without shame. There are usually nine frames in one photo with facial poses that are just–my goodness–where’s the purity in women?” according to a translation by Coconuts Jakarta.
