"There is a great logic behind this. Women are mostly more emotional than men and sometimes their emotions overcome their ability to express truth."

I've not heard such sexist statements in a long time. I see Muslim males expressing emotion--mostly anger and rage--all the time on TV! Not a lot of "truth" coming out of Muslim males, it would seem. Are you saying that anger and rage are somehow superior to whatever emotions you believe women express?!

There is absolutely no logic behind it--only ignorance.
