Behind this issue there is a slogan that has been raised by woman “My body, my choice”. My body my choice was firstly chanted in Pakistan during Aurat March in 2018. Some agree and some people disagree to it. Every issue has its own good and bad aspects. So I distributed this article into three parameters.
Firstly, according to narrow spectrum, some people think that women are demanding for independence in vulgarity and nudity in the world. You are familiar about this fact that the rape ratio has been increased in past years and behind this is that the concept of taking Dupatta (shawl worn by women) has totally vanished. Girls and woman dressed up according to Western culture. They wear jeans, tops, tights and shirts.
Dear girls! You think you look cool by wearing jeans shirts and by removing Dupatta from your head? If you think you look cool by doing this, then you are totally wrong. This is the main cause due to which men area attracted towards you and due to this, rape ratio has also risen. If you want, you can save yourself.
Secondly, according to broad spectrum and some feminists they thought that women are raising this slogan because they should not be harassed or abuse and touched. I want to say to those feminists that men are naturally attracted towards women. If a woman wants not to be touched, abused or sexually harassed, she must dressed up properly. If they want to hide themselves from evil eyes, they have to dress up according to their culture and traditions.
Talking about social media, the most vulgar app is Tiktok. People make every type of videos there; for example comedy based, conceptual and lesson based videos but many of girls are also spreading vulgarity by using this app. I don’t have any objection on making their videos but my point is that they should make videos in suitable dressing. By doing this, how can they are safe from evil eyes? Would these feminists like to answer me?
My third and last parameter is based on Islam. According to Islam the literal meaning of woman is a “hidden thing”. So it is clear that a woman must cover herself properly. Hidden things are more suspicious than the open ones. So by raising slogan and by Aurat March what type of independence and freedom they want? Before Islam girls were buried alive. Our religion has raised the status of a woman. According to Prophet Mohammad P.B.U.H,
“Islam has raised the status of a woman from earth to so high that
paradise lies in her feet.”
So, many years ago each and every type of independence has been given to woman that they are demanding today. A Muslim woman can be recognized by her dressing and by the way of her taking Dupatta. Coming to the point my choice and my body; your body is nothing without your soul. Your soul is amanat of ALLAH. So when he takes your soul, nothing will remain behind. Therefore, you must use your body as amanat of ALLAH. We don’t have any idea what will happen to us in the grave. Do good deeds. Save yourself from evil eyes. If you dress up according to your religion, no one can harm you. A Muslim woman can never raise these type of slogans. You have every type of freedom but you have to do everything in your limits. Hope you guys like my article and once again girls please save yourself. Thank you!
