Hot Muslim Lingerie Model Wore Burka to Fend off Rape

Some time ago we brought you the story of hot Muslim model Michelle Leslie, a.ka. Michelle Lee, being warned by an imam to stop posing for lingerie shoots. If you'll recall our original story, you'll remember that we complained to no end about the imam's fatwa. Good Michelle Leslie = lingerie, bad Michelle Leslie = burka.

Well it turns out Leslie donned the burka during her imprisonment in Indonesia to ward off being raped by the filthy buggers who had her imprisoned. The Border Mail:

MODEL Michelle Leslie wore Islamic dress during her stay in a Balinese prison on drugs charges to avoid being raped, she says.

In an interview with New Idea, Leslie said she wore the traditional Muslim headdress to protect herself from men inside the prison she feared would rape her.

Leslie related that another female prisoner was regularly taken out of her cell and raped. Leslie feared the same would happen to her if she didn't don the burka.

Apparently, her thuggish guards wouldn't dare rape a woman in a burka, but they had no problem raping a woman in prison garb. Because, you know, if you're not wearing a burka you're just asking for it.

From what I understand, male U.S. prisoners do somethething similar: they tattoo crucifixes and 'Jesus'.....on their backs.

Anyway, Michell Leslie is pretty clear that the only reason she donned the clothes of the ultra-conservative Islamic sects was that she felt she had no choice:

“I decided to dress in the Muslim burqa. I chose to wear Muslim dress for one reason and one reason only, to protect myself,” she said.

“When I put on the burqa, people were more respectful and I’m sorry if anyone is offended by that. But over there, it’s a case of whatever gets you through. I think anyone else would have done the same.”

Hat tip to Charles Johnson who has a much more serious take on this and check out our original story here for more Michelle Lesle sans burka pics.

1 Because in muslim countries women not wearing burkas deserve to be raped. Islam is submission, not peace.

2 Well, this woman has changed her story too many times for us to take her seriously. Her character is questionable to say the least. First, she is a lingerie model, an occupation most parents would not encourage their children to take up. Second, she was arrested for carrying illegal drugs, a charge she does not deny. Third, she has no qualms about lying to save her a#&. Its been a few months since she was first seen wearing a burka, and a few months since she's been back in Australia. No body forced her to either become Muslim or deny being a Muslim. I think this whole thing is just an attempt by her and her publicists to keep her in the media and portray her as a victim. I think the world has more pressing issues that need our attention.

3 >>>I think the world has more pressing issues that need our attention.

Yeah, let me guess, Guantanamo Bay and how "Bush" is taking away all your fweeeedoms!

4 Yeah, no one forces you to become a Muslim, but under sharia law you either have to become a Muslim, die, or pay the jizra(a special tax). Now there's a Hobson's choice if ever there was one.

7 >>>First, she is a lingerie model,

What do you mean, "first". Case closed as far as I'm concerned! She was obviously begging to be raped!

8 I'd pay some jizzya to get in her burqa.

9 It's not called a "burka", it's a jilbab, or hijab. Burkas are the full body thing.

10 we really need to see what she looks like in lingerie before we judge - don't you think?
