Do airport full body scanners violate Islam?
As full body scanners debut at most airports worldwide, two American Muslim groups have suggested that the technology violates the teachings of Islam.
The comments are just the latest controversy surrounding full-body scanners, which some critics call a “virtual strip search” because the technology sees through clothing to show the contours of a passenger’s body in detail.
The Islamic groups say that:“It is a violation of clear Islamic teachings that men or women be seen naked by other men and women,” the statement continued. “There must be a compelling case for the necessity and the exemption to this rule must be proportional to the demonstrated need.”
So what do you think??
