Video asking to harass Muslim women on Holi surfaces on social media

Sabrangindia 07 Mar 2020

On the auspicious occasion of Holi that is mostly celebrated by Hindus, a video asking for the harassing of Muslim women during the festival has emerged.

In the video, a man can be seen rubbing colours on the cheeks of a Muslim woman after taking off the burqa from her face. The video was posted on the popular social media app TikTok by a user who looks to bear an affiliation with the saffron brigade. He has turned off comments on this particular video, probably sensing the backlash they would entail.

Twitter has erupted in anger after the video was shared by persons who encourage the harassment of Muslim women on the festival. The language of the people who have reposted the video is not suitable for print.

 

 

Most of his other videos revolve around the Ayodhya temple and how every Hindu child is in service of Lord Ram.

Whether or not he has made this video is difficult to source. However, many people have shared the misogynistic and sexist video over social media. The more the video is spread among the masses, especially at such a sensitive time it will only give more impunity to those who do not respect women and women from other communities or the traditions of other religions.

At a time with the saffron brigade spreading hate against the minorities, this video is just going to provide a fillip to those who are looking for another chance to fulfill their vile interests and push the minorities further into a corner.

Stranded in Iran without essentials, Tamil fishermen’s desperate cry for help

More than 800 Tamil fishermen are trapped in Iran following the Corona virus outbreak. The fishermen have sent over 20 SOS videos, imploring the Indian government to rescue them. It has been 25 days since their plea, the Indian authorities are yet to respond. Even as their basic resources including water and food dwindle each day, the fishermen continue to survive despite all odds. Now, the families of the fishermen have also joined in the appeal to demand help from authorities, hoping someone takes notice of their cries before it is too late.
