Dad loses court battle to force carers to trim son’s pubic and underarm hair ‘in line with Islamic tradition’

A dad who took a care home to court because he wanted staff to trim his seriously disabled adult son’s pubic hair ‘in line with Islamic tradition’ has lost his legal battle.

The father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was adamant the hair around his son’s privates, as well as under his arms, should be cut in line with Islamic custom.

But experts said it would put the 39-year-old at risk of injury and was pointless, as he is unable to understand his religion.

The wages of cousin marriage?

    Okay, anyone want to explain to me just how an observant Muslim shaves their pubic hair in accordance with Islamic tradition?
    I’m all ears.
    This is new for me.

    • Observer

      Let’s hope it involves a very large and very sharp scimitar!

      You can find out online by asking one of those online sharia advisors. Not interested myself.

      If I didn’t think Islam was a crazy cult before, I sure would after reading this stuff.

      Too much information.

      More facts about islam I never wanted to know.

    • David Murrell

      DbN, I was going to post the exact same question myself. I have been reading articles on the BCF site for a long time now, and never heard of this wacko practice.

      • Clink9

        I think they got into it in the movie United 93.

      • Alain

        Don’t beat yourself up over it, because even having lived in a majority Muslim country that was a new one for me.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Me too! But Arabs certainly are hairy fuckers, that’s for sure. I know a Muslim bodybuilder/athlete in Toronto (actually, we know his “girlfriend”), and he shaves EVERYTHING. But that’s what bodybuilders do, so he’s not unique in that.

          But this “religious pubic hair trimming” thing is completely new to me, too.

          • Will Quest

            Sikhs, the fundamentalist adherents of Sikhism, shave their pubic hairs ….. thinK Harjit Sajjan , how these hairy creatures in turbans packed with yards of hair and bushy beards are concerned about too many pubes…… neurotic hair fetishes ……

    • Clink9

      It’s what those whack job 9/11 terrorists did after a night of debauchery with the infidels.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        THAT’S RIGHT!
        I knew somewhere in my distant memory was something to do with them shaving their body hair, but it was never elaborated on.

          United 93 scarred me for life.

      Pubic hair has to be cut short every 40 days for men and a women should keep her short as well but must shave smooth if her husband orders her to do so.
      Pubic hair should be cut with scissors, shaved with a blade, using lime to remove the hair, using arsenic to cause the hair to fall out. Only the strongest pluck the pubic hair, it’s considered a sign of strength.

      I think we should encourage the use of arsenic among muslim men more.

      • andycanuck

        Mother pluckers!

      • Justin St.Denis

        Wow.

        • Exile1981

          I wonder if you could buy 100lbs sacks of arsonic and claim it as a religious expense?

      • Well I clicked on that link and now I know.

  • Grover the Polar Bear

    I assume it has to do with desert sand getting mixed in with their pubes.

    Along with inventing science and discovering America, we now learn that Muslims and not American porn actors invented the tradition of ball shaving.

    • mobuyus

      It was rear guard action fought to stave off desert crotch crickets.

      • Maggat

        Rear guard? I thought they were saving their balls not their asses.

  • Sid Falco

    The father, who cannot be named for legal reasons”

    I think we can take a stab (islamophobia!) at his first name.

    • Alain

      That he cannot be named is a problem, because neither he nor his son are minors. Smacks again of special treatment.

  • Maggat

    “The wages of cousin marriage?” Yes, spend some time in muslim countries as I have and the results of in family marriages is readily apparent.

    • Clausewitz

      Always thought the banjo should be the most used instrument in Islam.

    • Grotesque.

  • Clausewitz

    If Islamists were any more controlling, they’d be Democrats.

  • The Deplorable Rosenmops

    Here is a similar case. The taxpayers cover the legal bill for these lunatics.

    Muslims need to STOP washing their feet when they go in to a Mosque and start washing their hearts of the hatred and arrogance .

    • David Murrell

      Beautifully said, a great post.

    • Alain

      Then they would no longer be Muslim.

  • andycanuck

    Easy. Cut it in a star of David shape. I doubt there will be a repeat request.

  • Frances

    If he wants his son’s private parts shaved, he should be doing it himself – if only to ensure the shaving is “kosher”, so to speak.

    • Will Quest

      – if only to ensure the shaving is “kosher”, so to speak.- HALAL is the word …
