A Muslim cleric has allegedly claimed women sexually assaulted during the New-Year Cologne attacks are to blame “because they were half naked” - in a shocking statement.
The shocking claims reportedly made by Sami Abu-Yusuf of the Salafist Cologne mosque also pointed the finger at the innocent victims for “wearing perfume”.
According to Breitbart he allegedly said: “We need to react properly, and not to add fuel to the fire.
“The events of New Year’s Eve were the girls' own fault, because they were half naked and wearing perfume. It is not surprising the men wanted to attack them."
The attacks are believed to be the work of North African migrants.
On the last day of the year mobs of refugees assaulted more than 500 women in and around Cologne railway station, sexually molesting and robbing them.
The incident has caused uproar in Cologne and calls have been made for Chancellor Angela Merkel to change her open-door policy.
Several rallies have also been staged in the German city against migration.
The horror attacks have sparked riots as tensions between protestors and counter-protestors reach a breaking point.
Police officer notes describe a timeline of how women were surrounded by men who put their hands down their trousers and groped their breasts.
When the victims dropped their belongings trying to defend themselves they were robbed, according to the notes.
A spokesman of the Bavarian security service said of the behavior: “Salafists are trying to talk with unaccompanied youths who have come to Germany without their families and who are in particular need of support and connections.
“The Salafists are trying to use the desperate situation refugees find themselves in for their own goals”.
