The hijab must be taken off and the face must be shown; Violence against a young woman

Bhopal: In Madhya Pradesh, a young woman wearing a religious dress was attacked while traveling on a scooter. The victim was traveling with a young man on a scooter. The attackers demanded that the hijab and burqa be removed after the vehicle in which the two were traveling was stopped. After blocking the young man and woman, the assailants took off the woman’s burqa and demanded that she remove her hijab and show her face. Footage of the incident has been circulating on social media. The aggression was by saying that the young woman was an insult to the community. The two were released after receiving assurances that they would not travel like this again. The incident took place on Saturday. The attackers stopped the vehicle on suspicion that the Muslim woman was traveling with a Hindu man. No case has been registered so far in the incident. The vehicle was stopped and two assailants were taken into custody and released. “The young man and woman arrived in Islam Nagar in the evening. Some people stopped them and asked the young woman to show her face after removing her hijab. The attackers had the impression that the young man was a Hindu and the young woman a Muslim.” Police official RS Verma told the Press Agency. “No case has been registered against the youths seen in the scenes, but precautionary measures have been taken. The youths were released on the assurance that they would not do such acts again.” Verma said. Earlier, a similar incident took place in Bengaluru. The victim was a bank official.
