And you thought Egypt was a secular country

In Egypt, a leading Islamic scholar has called for the death penalty for anyone found smuggling in a device that allows women to fake virginity on their wedding nights.
Abdul Mouti Bayoumi said supplying the item was akin to spreading vice in society, a crime punishable by death in Islamic Sharia law.

The device is said to release liquid imitating blood, allowing a female to feign virginity on her wedding night.

There is a stigma about pre-marital sex in conservative Arab societies.

The contraption is seen as a cheap and simple alternative to hymen repair surgery, which is carried out in secret by some clinics in the Middle East.

It is produced in China and has already become available in other parts of the Arab world.

The device is reported to be on sale in Syria for $15.
The Simpsons had a similar problem. Here's how they dealt with it.

Let's go to the videotape.

And you thought Egypt was a secular country. Heh.

I wonder why it upsets imams so much. Every one goes away happy. And Islam does sanction lying if it benefits a Muslim.

What is the problem here?
