Various media outlets report a "European-based," unnamed Islamic cleric recently issued a fatwa prohibiting women from touching bananas. According to the reports, the fruits resemble male sex organs too closely and prompt women to have sexual thoughts. Media outlets have not been able to confirm the authenticity of the order.
According to reports, the fatwa requires women to have a third party, preferably a male relative, cut and serve the fruit to them. Among other prohibited vegetables: carrots, cucumbers and zucchini. The order has drawn the scorn of millions of Muslims on the Internet.
Spurred on by the ridiculous fatwa, The Daily Beast came up with a top 10 most ridiculous list.
