- A video is doing rounds on social media
- In the video a woman/man can be seen in a burqa throwing some type of bomb on a CRPF bunker
- Afterwards it can be seen that the army personnel are extinguishing the fire with water buckets whereas the woman fled from the location.
Remember the Hijab controversy? While few were against the decision to permit Muslim girls to wear Hijab, others protested to ‘defend’ the religion and demanded the right to wear Hijab. This led to various debates and claims that why there is a need to ban Hijab and Burqa in schools and educational institutions. But, the recent Sopore incident has proved why it has become a necessity to ban them not only in educational institutions but throughout India. Let me tell you, how?
Burqa wearing woman hurls petrol bomb
In a recent video, a burqa-clad woman/man can be seen hurling a bomb at a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) bunker in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore town of Baramulla district on Tuesday.
Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar reported that “The woman in the video has been identified. She will be arrested soon.”
The 20-second clip which was recorded by a nearby security camera displays how the woman takes out the explosive device from his/her bag and throws it at the bunker. Feared by this, a few people who were walking on the road can be seen running away.

Though there have been no reports of injuries so far but it makes us rethink how a culprit can easily manage to hide anything dangerous under the veil. Moreover, the veil can help them hide their identity as well.
Sri Lanka’s ban on Hijab is a stern example
Earlier as reported by TFI in March 2021, after the deadly easter bombings of 2019 which resulted in the death of more than 250 people, the Buddhist majority nation of Sri Lanka had taken various punitive steps to curb the rise of Wahhabism and radical Islam in the island country. In such a move, Sri Lanka had banned Burqa and shut more than a thousand Islamic schools – Madrasas on the grounds of national security.
Addressing a news conference, Minister for public security Sarath Weerasekera had said that he has signed a paper, that is now awaiting the nod from the cabinet, which seeks to ban the full-face covering worn by some Muslim women on “national security” grounds.
Why is it necessary to ban Burqa?
While you may think that it is only ‘national security’ which forces us to rethink about why Burqa should be banned, mind you, there are many other reasons. Most of the crusaders batting for Muslim women being allowed to wear the patriarchal ‘Burqa’ are from the woke community. The burqa is a symbol of male oppression and yet some are adamant to push it as a matter of choice. It is a dichotomy of evolution. It’s the result of thousands of years of subjugation that genes carry to date, coupled with constant religious brainwashing that Muslims are claiming the Hijab to be a liberating choice.
Burqa which is a drab, dark, and dingy piece of clothing is not only a threat to liberation but is also a concern as far as the national security is concerned.
