Turkey’s Islamist Deputy Prime Minister Warns Women Not to Laugh in Public

Under Erdogan’s Islamist AKP thugs, the murder rate for women in Turkey increased an unprecedented 1400%.
Now one of Erdogan’s boys has some orders for women.
Women should not laugh in public in Turkey, the Deputy Prime Minister has said in a speech on “moral corruption” in the country.
Bülent Arınç used a meeting for Eid al-Fitr on Monday to condemn perceived moral regression, consumerism and even excessive mobile phone use.
“She will not laugh in public. She will not be inviting in her attitudes and will protect her chasteness,” Mr Arınç said.
He called for Turkish people to rediscover the Koran and stop moral regression.
Targeting women once more, Arınç said women talk about unnecessary things on the phone.
“Women give each other meal recipes while speaking on the mobile phone. ‘What else is going on?’ ‘What happened to Ayşe’s daughter?’ ‘When is the wedding?’
Unlike AKP Deputy PMs who insist on babbling about what women talk about on the phone.
Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu, who is running against the Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in August’s presidential elections, took to Twitter to argue against Mr Arınç‘s statement.
Turkey needed women to laugh, he said, and the country needs to hear laughter more than anything.
Also it needs Erdogan and his AKP thugs in the prison that they put so many of their political opponents.
Turkish women meanwhile responded to the Deputy Prime Minister with a social media protest of themselves laughing using the #direnkahkaha resist and laugh hashtag.
