Kerela, 12th May 2022: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan slammed a Muslim leader for humiliating a Muslim girl. A video went viral on social media where it can be seen that, a Muslim scholar leader from Malappuram district was seen humiliating the girl.

In the video, Muslim leaders were seen walking away and scolding the organizers of the event for inviting the girl on stage to receive the award. Following the incident, the Governor criticised the leader.

He took to Twitter and said, “Sad to know that a young talented girl was humiliated on stage in Malappuram district while receiving a well deserved award simply because she was born into a Muslim family.”

He quoted the Holy Quran and said, “Holy Qur’an says – ” And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them according to what is fair and reasonable, but men have an added degree of RESPONSIBILITY towards them -2.228″
