UAE Orders Stores to Behead Mannequins

The heads are offensive.

The UAE Sharjah authorities are ordering stores to behead their un-Islamic mannequins.
ANSAmed and Religion of Peace reported:

(ANSAmed) – DUBAI, FEBRUARY 21 – Mannequins should be beheaded: this is the directive issued by the authorities of Sharjah to all the clothing shops in the emirate. “The mannequins should be headless and the clothing in the window should respect the rules of decency, according to the religious principles,” stated a circular of Sharjah, one of the seven emirates which form the United Arab Emirates. The measure, according to Khalid Al Jaberi, head of market control at Sharjah Municipality, answers to a series of complaints advanced by the residents of the emirate annoyed by the increasing number of mannequins wearing scanty clothes or only underclothes.

The plastic models, according to the local authorities, depict very faithfully the reality, including facial description, offending some values of Islam.

No more smirking mannequins.
