News

"She must pay."

A Muslim actress, who posed nude in the German edition of Playboy, has caused quite a stir in the Islamic community of Germany.

Fox News reports:

Sila Sahin, a 25-year-old Turkish German living in Berlin, has been branded a "whore" and a "Western slut" after appearing topless on the cover of the magazine's May 2011 issue, The Sun reports.

Sahin's photographs, according to posts on Islamic websites, have shamed "Muslim womanhood" and depict her "prostituting herself for money," the newspaper reports.

"She needs to be very careful," one post read, according to the Sun.

"She must pay," another read.

The Sun has more about why the actress chose to pose for Playboy:

Sila, raised in Germany by conservative Turkish parents, says she fears being "spat at" and "shamed".

Her parents are said to have reacted with "horror" at the 12-page coverage, and her mother has apparently cut off all contact.

Sila, 25 - star of German soap Good Times, Bad Times - claimed the shoot was a reaction to the "slavery" of her youth.

She added: "What I want to say with these photos is, 'Girls, we don't have to live according to the rules imposed upon us'.

"For years I subordinated myself to various societal constraints. The Playboy photo shoot was a total act of liberation."

Here is Sila, looking more wholesome:
