Turkish women stage a "laughing" protest

What started the protest:

Hundreds of women in Turkey have taken to the social media to protest Deputy Prime Minister Blent Arıns call on them to not laugh in public. [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, Arın said July 28. Arıns words quickly sparked a debate on Turkish social media, triggering a protest in which hundreds of women shared their photos while laughing with hashtags #kahkaha (laugh) and #direnkahkaha (resist, laugh). Here are some of the photos shared for the protest


32 pf the fantastic pics:

3. A no laughing rule is a cry for impeachment, IMO.

Yes, the pic is a hoot.
