Mahsa Amini, a 22 years old Iranian young woman died in Tehran on 16 September, 2022, two days after her arrest and torture by the police for not wearing Hijab properly in public. During the past few days, tens of thousands of women across Iran have come to the street and demonstrated openly against the Hijab laws of the country by burning Hijab. The agitation has also spread to other countries and several Human Rights Organizations have come forward to condemn police highhandedness and killing of Mahsa Amini to implement Islamic laws on Hijab.
In India, however, the picture is opposite. Indian Muslims are justifying the Hijab law of Iran and death of Mahsa Amini. About six months back, there was a big controversy in India when state run schools in Karnataka state disallowed the Muslim girl-students to entre schools for violating the school dress-code by putting additional Hijab. The issue is sub-judice before the Supreme Court now.
Nizam Pasha, one of the advocates arguing for use of Hijab in state-run schools, before the Supreme Court of India, posted a tweet on 22 February 2022. The said tweet is viral in the country now. It said “Holy Quran 33:59 explains why Muslim women should wear a hijab. ‘So that they can be recognised as Muslim and not be harassed.’ The hijab is meant to tell people that this is a strong woman with a strong community standing behind her that you are taking on, so tread with caution,”
As per Sahih International, the full text of Quran 33:59 reveals: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.”
This verse explains the general situation of women in Muslim society. It unequivocally accepts that women are abused and molested in public places by perpetually sex-driven Muslim men who behave like hooligans. And the dress code of Hijab for Muslim women is for their identification as Muslim and safety.
Nizam Pasha tries to defend the Hijab Verse of Quran by making his community a band of goondas and protectors of only Muslim women. He draws a distinction between Muslim and non-Muslim women and labelled his women as stronger, being supported by a strong community, in comparison to non-Muslim women.
But what is holy about the said verse? The verse is not universal. It not only be-littles the position of Muslim women in public, but also encourages street-side Muslims to abuse and molest non-Muslim women. Islam’s Allah is not at all merciful. He does not give a damn about the plight of non-Muslim women. He is concerned about His followers alone.
As a fall out of this holy verse of Quran, the utter contempt and lust for non-Muslim women are ingrained in the head of Muslim men. Their contempt and lust for non-Muslim women come out in open on many occasions and is not considered as immoral under Islam. Even if a non-Muslim woman who is a victim of molestation by a Muslim, lodges a complaint, she is labelled as Islamophobic. What a holy religion Islam is!
Islam is an impossible religion. Quran demands that Muslims should consider Kafir as dirty, sub-human and worst of the creatures. So, if one follows Islam in letter and spirit on this Kafir issue (and many more like this), one becomes absolutely unfit for modern civilized and multi-cultural society. But if he does not follow such commands of Allah, like Asaduddin Owaisi coming no TV debate and showing his IMAGE, he becomes a Munafiq. Even if Arfa Khanum Sherwani expresses “Happy Diwali” to any Hindu, she becomes a Mushrik.
As India’s most vocal Islamists like Rana Ayyub, Saba Naqvi and Zainab Sikander et al do not have Hijab and Mehram in public, they become Faajir (sinner by action). Same is the case with Urduwood Khan gang, who perform dance and song, which are forbidden under Islam. In Quran verse 80:42, Kafir and Faajir have been put in same bracket. So, from the view point of Islam, these Islamist women and Khan gang of India are Kafir.
Whatever Jilebi-argument an Islamic apologist can give, the inherent problem of Islam is obvious like daylight. Either one is an exclusive, violent and intolerant Momin or a Munafiq/Mushrik/Kafir. Allah has kept severe punishment for Munafiq, Mushrik and Kafir hereafter and true Momin is hated by civilized population in this world. Islam is as impossible to practice as Communism and that is why they make the two sides of the same coin in non-Communist secular democratic countries.
