Assam shop owner abuses a lady and kicked her out of his shop for wearing jeans
A 22-year-old Muslim woman was verbally abused and assaulted for wearing jeans instead of a burqa. The girl’s father was also assaulted when he went to protest about the incident.
Police have arrested three people in Assam‘s Biswanath district along with the shop owner.
According to police sources, the incident took place at a mobile phone accessories store in Biswanath Chariali, around 230 km from Guwahati, where the girl had gone to buy a pair of earphones.
The mobile accessories shop owner Nurul Amin on Friday misbehaved with the woman and then pushed her out of his store because she was wearing jeans and not the burqa. Subsequently, Amin’s two sons physically assaulted the girl the next day.
The girl came home and told her family about the incident. When her father went to the shop to protest he was beaten up by family members of the shopkeeper.
The girl’s father said, “My daughter was misbehaved and kicked out from Nurul’s shop for wearing jeans instead of a burqa. These people are trying to bring the Taliban system in Assam and forcing girls to wear burqas and Hijab.”
The woman said, “These types of people are trying to enforce the Taliban system in Assam and forcing girls to wear burqa and hijab. I am pursuing a BCA (Bachelor of Computer Application) at a government college. I studied Assamese culture but now these people tried to follow the Taliban style by wearing burqas and hijab.”
“When I went to his shop (inside his house), Amin told me that if I visited his house wearing jeans, it would influence his family because his daughter-in-law wears a burqa or hijab. Amin and his sons also misbehaved with my father when my father went to the shop to complain about his behaviour.”
Police said that they have arrested Amin and his two sons — Suffiqul Islam and Rafiqul Islam, and were probing the matter.
