On May 21, Munirah Bahari, vice president of the National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia, said: 'The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction'.She even said that girls deliberately wore the dresses 'to lure men'.
In multicultural Malaysia, home to majority-Muslim Malays as well as ethnic Chinese and Indians, girl students in government schools have a choice of wearing a white blouse with a knee-length skirt or pinafore.They may also wear a baju kurung, the traditional Malay dress, and a headscarf is optional for Malay students.
While calling for review of the uniform policy so that it did not violate Islamic ideals, Bahari said that 'covering up' according to Islamic precepts was important to fend off social ills, including 'rape, sexual harassment and even premarital sex'.
Hossein said he personally felt it was unfair to blame the students or their uniforms for sexual crimes committed against them, The Star reported Monday.
'It is unfair to punish women and children for the clothes they wear for the act of the rapist,' he said, adding that he could not allow such stereotyping to continue.
'Clothing is not the main consideration for those who commit despicable acts,' Hossein said.

However, the girls themselves also came in for criticism, with the association saying that some used the white blouse to lure men.
"This is the source of the problem, where we can see that schoolgirls themselves are capable of using this to attract men to them," Munirah said.
