A Muslim woman wearing a headscarf in a video on social media has been criticised for using her headscarves to ‘show support’ for a “man who is harassing” her, while a man wearing a hijab is “torturing” her.
In a video posted on Facebook, the unnamed woman wearing the hijab is seen standing in front of a picture of the head of the Islamic State militant group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed by US special forces last month.
The woman, who is seen walking up and down the street with her face covered, is seen talking about how she has been “treating” her family by wearing a scarf.
She says she wears it because she loves her Muslim brothers and sisters.
“But it’s my duty as a Muslim woman to show support for the man who is threatening to take my life, and his family,” she says.
“He is torturing my family.
He is tortuing my brother.
He has tried to rape me.
I am a Muslim.
I love my brothers and my sisters.
I can’t take it anymore.
I want to show my support.”
The video has been viewed nearly 9,000 times since it was posted on Monday, and has attracted more than 14,000 comments.
Several comments have described the video as a “misogynistic rant”, while others said it was “a disgrace” that women were not allowed to wear hijabs.
“She’s wearing it to show her support for a man who’s being abusive towards her, who’s threatening to rape her,” a man named Ahmad, who goes by the handle ‘Ozymandias’, wrote on Facebook.
“I hate her.
She should wear hijab.””
I think she should take a shower before she goes out on the street to show the world that she’s a woman and that she is a human being,” another commenter named ‘Zaratul’ said.”
I am not even allowed to walk on the streets of my city.
This is disgusting.
She is not a woman, she is not human.
She deserves to die for her crimes.”
One comment that caught the eye of many was from a Muslim man named Saeed, who said: “I don’t understand why she has to do this.
What are you doing?
What are your motives?””
I’m a woman.
I live in the United States.
I don’t feel safe in this country,” he added.
In the video, the woman wearing hijab is shown standing on a street corner, as men wearing burqas are seen around her, with a group of men surrounding her.
She can be heard telling one of them: “Go away.
I’ll call you back later.”
In another video, she can be seen walking past a restaurant, wearing a black hijab.
“Why is she wearing hijab?
Why do you wear hijab?
You have nothing to hide.
You’re a human.
You don’t have anything to hide,” a woman named Ayman, who uses the name Abu Mohammed, said.
“Why is the hijab on her face?”
“It’s because you’re a woman,” a voice is heard in the video saying.
“You have nothing in your mind, you have nothing inside your head.
You have to take care of yourself.
You need to get up and get dressed.””
And the man with the scarf has something in his hand.
He’s holding a knife,” another voice is also heard in one of the videos.
“And you’re going to be scared because he’s threatening you.
And you need to take your clothes off.”
Another comment said: “‘You’re a Muslim?
Why are you wearing a burqa?
What about your body?
You’re not Muslim.
You aren’t a Muslim, you’re not a human.’
You don?t understand?”
A statement posted on the Facebook page of the Centre for Constitutional Rights (CCR) said:”This is an outrageous display of Islamophobia and Islamophobia-driven discrimination.
It’s an attack on the rights of Muslims to live free of harassment and intimidation in the US.””
The women wearing the burqa have nothing at all to hide, they’re not victims, they don’t suffer any consequences.
They’re doing what they want to do, and they’re doing it because they love their country.”
These videos highlight the need for Congress to pass legislation to ensure that Muslim Americans can express themselves freely and freely in this great country.
The videos are an insult to Muslims who have been persecuted for decades, and the Congress needs to act immediately to ensure the safety of Muslim Americans.””
