Women Shouldn't Laugh In Public Claims Turkey's Deputy PM

Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç is encouraging women not to laugh in public because the man apparently considers it morally corrupt.  During an Eid al-Fitr speech he touched on several subjects, including immorality and consumerism.

“Chastity is so important. It is not only a name. It is an ornament for both women and men. [She] will have chasteness. Man will have it, too. He will not be a womanizer. He will be bound to his wife. He will love his children. [The woman] will know what is haram and not haram. She will not laugh in public. She will not be inviting in her attitudes and will protect her chasteness.” 
“Where are our girls, who slightly blush, lower their heads and turn their eyes away when we look at their face, becoming the symbol of chastity?” 
He also condemned the Turkish people for using too much gas, owning too many cars and cell phones, and singled out women for chatting about useless things on their phones.

“Women give each other meal recipes while speaking on the mobile phone. ‘What else is going on?’ ‘What happened to Ayşe’s daughter?’ ‘When is the wedding?’ Talk about this face to face."

Okay, so he has some valid points about consumerism, but laughing out loud is immoral?

Yes, these are the same people who want to join the E.U.
