GAZA, (PIC)-- MP Sheikh Hamed Al-Beitawi, the head of the association of Palestinian scholars, strongly denounced the Palestinian Authority (PA) for sponsoring a beauty pageant for Palestinian girls in the West Bank.

In a statement to the Palestinian information center (PIC) Sheikh Beitawi said that organizing such contests is contrary to the Islamic values and ethics which calls for virtue and falls under the blind imitation of non-Muslim people that is forbidden in the holy book of Quran.

He added that choosing what is called Miss Palestine in the presence of escalating settlement activities in the West Bank, Zionist attempts to Judaize occupied Jerusalem and the blockade on the Gaza Strip reflects the organizers’ disrespect to the suffering and concerns of the Palestinian people.

The Palestinian scholar stressed that it is not appropriate for a people under occupation, who have thousands of prisoners in Israeli jails and struggle for their freedom, to host such events that promote immorality.

The scholar called on the Palestinian people especially fathers to reject such events and prevent their daughters from participating in them.
