The Kerala Women’s Commission today slammed the comment of a Muslim cleric against inviting girl students to the stage to felicitate them. The chairperson P Sathidevi said that it is not suitable for a modern society.
Two days ago, the video of EK Samastha leader MT Abdulla Musliyar criticising the organisers of an annual meet of a madrasa in Perinthalmanna in Malappuram for inviting girls to the state had gone viral.
He was heard asking them if they are not aware of the decision of Samastha [on such matters]. Musliyar said that the parents of the girls can be invited to the stage instead.
People should react against such attempts to drag girls centuries behind, Sathidevi said.
