Fucking ridiculous, but not altogether surprising from a country which affords women such a low status.

Unbelievable! I bf DS for 2 years out of choice, but that law is just wrong.

This is a country where rape survivors can be flogged. I am not surprised they think they can dictate how women use their breasts.
