The teachings of the Quran and the Hadith form the basis of Sharia. It is a system of Islamic law that governs various aspects of Muslim life. It includes personal morality, family law, and business practices. Sharia is often associated with strict and conservative interpretations of Islam and is practised differently across the world.
Sharia advocates for women to cover themselves up for protection, with the hijab seen as the ultimate shield against rape and molestation.
However, recent events have exposed the intolerance of some followers of this system, as demonstrated in the molestation of a hijab-clad girl who was hanging out with a non-Muslim boy. They did not differentiate between peaceful individuals, displaying their disregard for human rights.
And they say, it is about clothes,
Naah, it is upbringing !! Clearly one community needs introspection and reforms. pic.twitter.com/HSbiOUGmmj

Three men, who shared the same religion as the victim, attacked a hijab-clad Muslim girl for allegedly hanging out with a non-Muslim boy. The girl, a student at a local college, was walking with her Hindu friend. That is when the men approached them, hurling abuses. The men beat up the girl and threatened her friend, warning him against associating with Muslim girls.
A bystander captured the incident on video, which went viral on social media. It led to widespread condemnation and outrage. The Muslim men’s intolerance towards their fellow Muslim girl and her friend was evident in their violent actions.
How long will these actions go unheard? Why aren’t any feminists and liberals raising their voice against this atrocity? The answer is pretty clear – it does not suit their agenda because the molestors are not the community they target for their abuse hurling! It is time to wake out of this slumber and call it for what it is – Shameful!
