National Fatwa Council forbids tomboyism

KOTA BARU, 23 Oct 2008: The National Fatwa Council has ruled that tomboyism, where a girl behaves or dresses in a boyish manner, is forbidden in Islam.

Its chairperson, Datuk Dr Abdul Shukor Husin, said the decision was prompted by recent cases of young women behaving like men, and indulging in homosexuality.

Parents must guide their children from indulging in disruptive activities that are against Islamic teachings, he told reporters at the close of a two-day council meeting here today.

The meeting was held to discuss social ills confronting Muslims, including the issue of tomboyism. — Bernama
