A Turkish Islamic preacher is suggesting that clean-shaven men sometimes “cannot be distinguished from women” and can cause “indecent thoughts.”

Preacher Murat Bayaral spoke of the subject on the private religious station Fatih Medreseleri (Madrasahs) TV on Dec. 16. Bayaral criticized beardless men and said there is no need to receive permission from wives for a man to shave his beard.

“Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard,” Bayaral said. “For example, if you see a man with long hair from afar you may think he is a woman if he does not have a beard. Because nowadays women and men dress similarly. God forbid! You could be possessed by indecent thoughts.”

Bayaral’s comments have drawn massive backlash and mockery from social media users, from Turkey and internationally.
