Don't touch that cucumber! Islamic cleric bans women from touching '------shaped' foods in case it arouses them

An Islamic cleric living in Europe has said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any 'sexual thoughts'.
The unnamed sheikh was quoted by el-Sawsana news saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male relative, should cut the items into small pieces and serve.
The cleric said that these fruits and vegetables 'resemble the male -----' and could arouse women or 'make them think of ---,' in a story reported on Egyptian news website Bikya Masr.

The sheikh was asked how to 'control' women when they are out shopping for groceries and if holding these items at the market would be bad for them.

The carrot should also join the forbidden list of foods for women to touch
The cleric answered saying this matter is between them and God.
Answering another question about what to do if women in the family like these foods, the sheikh advised the interviewer to take the food and cut it for them in a hidden place so they cannot see it.
The opinion has stirred a storm of anger among Muslims online, with hundreds mocking the cleric.
One reader said that these religious 'leaders' give Islam 'a bad name' and another saying he should quit his post immediately.
Another dismissed the sheikh as merely a publicity seeker.
No official responses from Islamic scholars have been made on the statements as yet.
