“Video: ‘Stupid b***h needs to be killed’: Muslim Girl in Hijab Barraged with Death Threats for Twerking,”A Muslima twerking while wearing a hijab is direspecting Islam. Threatening a girl with death for twerking in hijab? Highly respectful to Islam.This week a Muslim girl was captured on camera dancing in Birmingham. Viewed over 1 million times on social media, the Muslim girl, who is seen wearing a hijab during her ‘twerking’, received a barrage of criticism for allegedly “disrespecting” Islam and dishonoring the Muslim community.
After receiving thousands of negative comments, including death threats, the unnamed Muslim girl apologized for her supposedly defamatory act. One person, so galled by the Muslim girl’s carnal display, commented by saying, “F*****g s**t someone give me her address I will kill her”. Another man seconded: “Stupid b****h needs to be killed”.Interviewed by the Conservative and always- perfervid Islamic YouTuber Ali Dawah, the Muslim girl’s actions were deemed “really bad” and “inappropriate” – actions which, she was reminded repeatedly, is being gauged by her community, particularly when her actions connote sexuality.
In the “interview”, which at times feels more like an inquisition, Ali Dawah presses the Muslim girl to explain why she would resort to such a salacious dance in public. Acknowledging that she’s an ostensibly legitimate figure of opprobrium in her community, the Muslim girl explains in the interview that, “I was out with my friends, we were going shopping and there were these people playing music, there was one song that a girl wanted to dance with me,” and later adding that her mental health problems often hinder her ability to “think straight”.
Dawah goes on to remind the sobbing girl that Muslims are judging her behavior and petitions the Muslim girl to apologize for her defamatory behavior. The Muslim girl accedes, stating: “To all the girls that wear hijab and wear abayah, I’m sorry for disrespecting it,” and “I’ve learnt from my mistake, …. I’m just hurt, I just want everybody to leave it alone and keep everything away. I don’t want it to be how it was and I’m not gonna do anything like again and I’m sorry for disrespecting it and thank you to all of you that helped.”
As the video goes on, and he continues to eyeball the situation, Dawah claims that music was to blame for the girl’s actions. Dawah’s co-host, Musa, in a similarly unctuous posture, responds by claiming, “this is why music is haram [forbidden in Islam]”.Following her public character assassination, others defended the Muslim girl’s actions. Iranian critic of Sharia Law and proponents of secularism, Maryam Namazie, lambasted those who insisted that the Muslim girl apologized. Maryam said, “Why the hell does she need to say sorry?”….
