- Case against Kerala professor for "outraging the modesty of women"
- Professor's remarks triggered bare-breasted protests by women in Kerala
- Professor said even if you wear hijab you are supposed cover your breasts
A 20-year-old sociology student of Kozhikode's Farook College, where professor Munawar teaches, has filed the complaint against him after the video of a speech he made at a private gathering had been widely shared.
The speech was made at least two months ago, but the video went viral, just a week ago.
In it, the professor is heard saying: "Even though you are covering, there are parts where skin can be seen... When you are wearing hijab, you are supposed to cover your breasts because men find them most attractive in a woman... But what are they doing? They are only covering their head and they show off a portion of their body."
The college had distanced itself from the professor's comment, saying the incident did not happen on the premises and it was not the opinion of the college either. The professor has been on leave this week, according to college sources.
