Nudity in Films Okay- Says Egyptian Salafi Sheik El Qusy.
So, I'm watching this video thinking, wow, that's pretty amazing, a progressive Salafi (an oxymoron, if there ever was one)- there is hope yet, if the most conservative of Muslims are this tolerant. Egyptian Salafi Sheik Osama El Qusy is even more accepting than I am about nudity in films, which (for the most part) I find gratuitous and excessive. Until his final comments referencing Salafis in general: "But I am different from there". Ah. Well there you have it, he admits he does not represent mainstream Salafism and says he was like them 20 years ago. Which means we have another 20 years before Salafis become remotely able to deal with modern society.
