Camouflaged Prostitutes

Prostitutes in Thailand will go all out in wooing their customers at those red light district places. They will be dressed to kill (reveal as much as possible). Their eyes will try to electrify your eyes too.

But in Mombasa of Kenya, prostitutes are dressed in buibui - a loose, floor-length gown and head covering. Unfortunately, this has drawn strong criticism from the Muslim brethens.

The prostitutes were forced to wear the bubui to hide their identity in order to avoid arrest. Apparently most of this sex workers were not locals but from neighbouring countries and such dressing is tarnishing the bubui normally worn by Muslim ladies.

In this case, the sex workers could get to mingle around and get to do their daily chores without being looked at or targetted by religious vigilante. Pity them or what? Really messed up.

The secretary of the Council of Imams of Kenya actually quoted this for the prostitutes - "For God's sake, if one has decided to join this profession, the uniform of prostitutes is well known. They should stick to their disgraceful attire."

i think that this is really inapropriate, because a lot of thai sex workers are poor childeren that are being exploited, abused, and traffiked.

they dont choose their "disgraceful attire" or way of life, and they don't woo the customers with their electrifying eyes.

they are human too.
