‘Women need not participate in CAA protests,’ Aboobacker Musliyar stirs hornet’s nest

Agency News

Kanthapuram AP Aboobacker Musliyar, an Islamic spiritual leader, has stirred a controversy on Monday saying women need not participate in CAA protests.

His sexist view on anti-CAA protest by women has drawn widespread response from women activists. “Women need not shout slogans, raise clenched fists and get on the streets to protest like men. If a situation arises where women need to show their support (against the anti-CAA movement), then they can come forward and do so. Otherwise they need not come to the fore,” Aboobacker Musliyar expressed his views while talking a Malayalam Channel Asianet news at Kozhikkode.

A notable Islamic scholar, writer, educationist and President of the Islamic Community of India, Kanthapuram AP Aboobacker Musliyar is a much respected leader from the Islamic community, hailing from Kanthapuram in Kozhikode.
