#Ibrahim_Issa raises a storm of controversy: the women of Upper Egypt wore swimsuits (video)

The statements of the journalist Ibrahim Issa, sparked a wide wave of controversy.

Activists on social networking sites in Egypt circulated recordings of the journalist Ibrahim Issa about the women of Upper Egypt wearing swimsuits in the sixties and seventies of the last century.

Issa said in the recordings circulated to him and published by a large number of social media activists in Egypt: “If you were born in the sixties and born from the years 70 to 75, I assure you that there is a picture of your grandmother in a swimsuit and a picture of your mother in a swimsuit, if you are in Minya in Upper Egypt. In Sohag, Assiut, Baltim »

And he continued, "I would like to tell you that she was neither a disobedient nor an infidel, nor a display of adornment, and all the terms that they instilled in your mind until now about the woman, including your mother."

Issa's statements caused a strong attack on him: "The women of Upper Egypt and Egypt are a red line and they should not be spoken of with statements such as swimsuits."
