Malappuram: A senior leader of Samastha Kerala Jem-iyyathul Ulama, MT Abdulla Musaliyar berated the organisers of a students’ felicitation ceremony for inviting a girl student on stage to receive an award.
In the video, the senior leader was seen asking the organisers whether they don’t know the Samastha rules and angrily shouting at them for calling her upon the stage.
“Who invited a tenth standard student here on the stage? If you do this again, I will show you. Do not call such girls over here. Don’t you know Samastha’s rules? Invite the parents here. Were you the one who called (her)? Don’t do such things while we are sitting here. Won’t this come in photos?,” the senior leader Musaliyar asked angrily.
Samastha, a Muslim Sunni scholarly body was felicitating students in Malappuram. After the video went viral on social media, the Samastha leader was heavily criticised by ex-Muslim groups and various nationalist groups.
However, the left-liberal activists and feminists are keeping mum on the incident, fearing the wrath of Islamist groups in the state. This duplicity of the self-proclaimed liberals and feminists has also come under severe criticism as they refuse to raise voice against the repression of women in Islam.
