    I think above law fits right here....

    In Tennessee, it is against the law to drive a car while sleeping.

    In New York, it is against the law for a blind person to drive an automobile

    and this one is right from pakistan

    In Virginia, the Code of 1930 has a statute which prohibits corrupt practices or bribery by any person other than political candidates.

    کیا عورت کی ہوا خارج ہونے سے آگ لگنے کا خطرہ ہو سکتا ہے ؟

    If NS was a female living there the predicament of this gastronomic could be beyond imagination. Maybe abstaining from Faja’s dishes could solve the problem

    This is the most funny news I have read in a while ...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    An Islamic city council in the Indonesian province of Aceh, which follows Sharia, has banned female citizens from passing gas.

    Sayyid Yahia, mayor of the city, told media that a ban was needed, as farting does not go well with the Islamic values of modesty. “Muslim women are not allowed to fart with sound, it’s against Islamic teachings,” he said. Meanwhile, the Indonesian Feminists Association told local media they will attempt to block the smelly law as they deem it discriminatory.

    Talking to The Wadiyan, mayor Sayyid Yahia said the law aims to save people’s morals and behaviors. “When you see woman fart loud, she appears like a man. But if she sit sideways and pass it quietly, she looks like a woman,” Sayyid said.

    Although the proposed law does not ban “quiet fart,” passing gas with sound is actually not uncommon in Southeast Asia, particularly for women consuming potatoes and peas. Obviously, women maintain that they feel healthier, farting loud. Fathima Khan, a medical doctor at the Al Banni Islamic Hospital in Aceh’s capital is critical of the proposed law: “There is no need to question this practice, let alone regulate it, because people do it for their health and safety,” she said.

    The mayor declined to give The Wadiyan details of what the punishment would be for violators. While another member at the City council, who wished not to be named, said if convicted by the sharia court, the offender could receive 20 lashes for small farts and up to 3 months prison time for larger ones.

    On another note, the local Islamic scholars were mostly divided over the law. Well-known Muslim activists like Bshar Abdulla voiced his objection, “How to pass gas is not regulated in Sharia. There is no mention of it in the Koran,” he said on his Twitter account. However, “the Islamic tradition and the values of modesty does not support women farting loud,” said Mehmood Hussain, a scholar and stenchy supporter of the law.

    Under the new regulation, the mayor says that only women in the public space are going to be monitored. “It will be the responsibility of the husband to make sure that his wife upholds Islamic values at home”. He also argued that there is no scientific evidence supporting health benefits of passing gas, in Koran.

    The City council will be evaluating the regulation in a week, after which it could turn into a by-law.

    Shirazi Sahib,

    Not only funny but also stupid.

    Such Religious Pundits must be examined by an International Psychiatric Clinic.

    They should not be permitted to make fun of religion by putting a ban on Natural Female Bio-Gas.
