The president of France Nicholas Sarkozy, who is working hard to preserve the dignity of women by banning burqa, has in fact lost his face when his wife’s nude pictures were sold in an aunction for a mere $91,000.
Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni (now officially Carla Bruni-Sarkozy), who married in February, were greeted by the Prince of Wales and by the Duchess of Cornwall after the presidential plane landed in London Wednesday.
The French president’s schedule included a full state banquet at Windsor Castle on Wednesday night, where he is staying as the guest of the queen.
On Wednesday afternoon, Sarkozy addressed both British Houses of Parliament in French and discussed many important matters of state.
But away from the politics, Nicolas Sarkozy’s wife was attracting as much, if not more, attention than her husband during the two-day visit.
The famous auction house Christie’s is to sell nude photographs of former model Bruni-Sarkozy, taken by Michel Comte in 1993, in New York next month.
Kate Moss nude and Gisele Bundchen nude photos are also nearing the same auction block, but it’s Carla Bruni – the new, wife of the French President – who has been attracting even attention of celebrity news and mainstream media.
“I have other nude photographs of Carla far more explicit, but I would never sell them,” Swiss photographer Michel Comte was quoted as saying in the daily Le Matin.
Mr Nicholas Sarkozy is said to have “no issue” with tastefully revealing images of his wife being made public.
A source at the Elysee Palace told France’s Le Post news website: He has made it clear he has no problem with this because he knows that the only images of his wife in existence are tasteful. “Some may be nude, but she is a beautiful woman who was a model and only ever posed for pictures that had artistic merit” said Nicholas Sarkozy.
Umar Shariff, who runs an educational trust known as DIET in Bangalore, when asked about the Burqa Ban in France replied instantly – “How can a man (Nicholas Sarkozy) who sells his wife’s nude pictures on the streets know the true level of modesty which Islam enjoins on dignified women?” “True dignity of a woman is preserved when she dresses up like Mary, the mother of Jesus. We Muslims are those who live by the commandments of God” he added.
Imran Ali, another Muslim who runs a public charitable trust by thename PPC in India, commented cynically saying “This does not really surprise me since a person who is eager to see others wives, daughters, sisters etc (by banning Hijab), would of course invite others to check out his wife.”
1. I endorse the views of Brother Umar Shariff, you cannot expect otherwise from some one who wants the world to see his nude wife. For him this is emancipation of women, for us it is exploiting her dignity.
2. If Sarkozy says, the nude images of his wife are “tasteful” and have “artistic merit” I can only say ” God save France .”
