Modesty is more than just clothes. A person should have a clean mind, clean heart, good behaviour, good actions and a modest gaze.
I am a British Pakistani and a Muslim Hijabi. I constantly see Pakistani religious keyboard warriors shaming fashion and entertainment in their country.
They are constantly trolling their beautiful actresses and models for petty things like fashion and dance.
Even when I click on Pakistani item songs, I see Pakistani religious keyboard warriors shaming actresses for wearing revealing clothes and for dancing. Those revealing clothes are not even that revealing according to the western world, it is usually just an actress showing her tummy and arms, and for Pakistanis that is equal to porn.
The first thing is why do those Pakistani religious men even click on those YouTube videos, on those item songs. This is because Allah told them to "lower their gaze." Watching those item songs, looking at a woman's skin and listening to music is also forbidden in Islam.
They watch those item songs to enjoy themselves and then in the comments section, they start talking about religion to shame women for their fashion and dance.
This is just hypocrisy and contradiction.
I am fed up of religious keyboard warriors constantly shaming women over fashion. They constantly troll women on social media over their dressing. It can become really toxic and annoying.
I hate that self-righteous behaviour of religious keyboard warriors, where they have the attitude that they are pious angels and others are sinners. It develops a superiority complex. They start thinking they will go to heaven and others will go to hell.
There are hundreds of crimes and social issues that religious keyboard warriors can criticise other than fashion and entertainment.
The following things my Asian and Muslim community should criticise instead of fashion and entertainment.
2. Money Laundering
3. Avoiding tax
4. Country's debt
7. Stealing electricity
9. Unjust legal system
And some social issues:
1. Female infanticide
2. Honour killings
3. Domestic abuse
4. Forced marriages
5. Acid attacks
6. flesh trade
Those corrupt politicians who have destroyed their country also cover up by wearing best suits.
Therefore, we should not judge a book by its cover.
At least, actresses earn money with hard work instead of looting the country by doing corruption, money laundering and robbery of mobile phones and gold shops.
Recently, when a youtuber called Dino Tokia took her Hijab off, she was trolled on social media by the Hijabi community. A lot of youtubers including Ali Dawah bullied. Everybody made a reaction video to shame her. Ali Dawah made three videos against Dina Tokio to shame her for removing her Hijab.
He even attacked Adam Saleh in public for not being modest and Islamic enough when he was meeting his Hijabi fans. He literally stalked Adam Saleh when he chose to ignore his Islamic reminders on youtube and twitter. Ali Dawah attacks everybody to be a "saviour of Islam." He forces Muslim youtubers to listen to his Islamic advice.
In England, Boxing Champion Amir Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom was always trolled on social media by her Pakistani community for wearing revealing clothes. Her own brother-in-law tweeted about her plastic surgery to call her Michael Jackson. Her conservative in-laws judged her so much for three years that she finally spoke about it on television, on good morning Britain show. Her in-laws and the Pakistani community kept encouraging Amir Khan to divorce her just because they hated her for being westernised. This shows the toxicity of my Pakistani community.
Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was trolled by her fellow Pakistanis when her pictures leaked with Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor. She was criticising for wearing a short dress and for smoking. Her Bollywood film Raees was even banned in Pakistan because of racism.
Pakistani actresses never even wore a bikini or did a lip kiss yet for Pakistani religious keyboard warriors it is too much.
Sana Javed was trolled for her song called "Beliya" where she was just wearing a saree, no lip kiss, no bikini and still it was porn for Pakistani religious people.
As a Muslim girl, I know that Muslims troll actresses to make them cover up, they force women to follow their culture and religion. Whenever a woman shows her arms, shoulders and knees, it becomes a threat to their conservative culture and religion. Things like honour killings, domestic abuse, cyber bullying, backbiting and emotional abuse is done to control them, to control their dressing and their love life because many are not allowed to have boyfriends or love marriage.
Actresses are even trolled for dancing in weddings because Pakistanis think that is a threat to their conservative culture and religion. I am a Pakistani, Muslim and a Hijabi but I am fed of those religious keyboard warriors, those toxic, patriarchal and controlling people including orthodox women.
