Jama Masjid Administration Bans Women From Entering Alone As They Are Responsible For “Improper Acts”. This Is Ridiculously Sexist!

November 24, 2022 | by Ritu Sanghvi

In recent times, India as a country has become extremely stringent when it comes to women. As a society, we are trying to find new ways to oppress women – whether it is through their clothes or their movement. A prime example of that is the recent order that the Jama Masjid administration has issued. As per the order women and girls who are coming alone or in a group will be banned from entering the Jama Masjid so as to curb improper acts that are done inside the premises of the religious place. Barkha Dutt is among many to call them out.

Recently, the Jama Masjid administration put up a plaque outside the masjid premise that stated that women and girls who were coming alone or in a group would be banned from entering the religious place. The reason behind the ban, given by the administration, is to curb the improper acts that are done inside the premises – like recording reels and making it the meeting point.

Sabiullah Khan, Jama Masjid, said, “There are no restrictions on girls/women coming with families, no restrictions on married either.” He further emphasised that women’s entry is not completely banned.

Furthermore, the Jama Masjid PRO added that when women tend to come alone improper acts are done and videos are shot and they also make it a meeting point which is inappropriate as it is a religious place.

Needless to say, this ban did not sit well with people online. One of those people included journalist Barkha Dutt who took to Twitter to call out the ridiculousness of this order that the Jama Masjid administration has passed.

In her tweet, Barkha Dutt said, “Utterly ridiculous exercise of control on women. Suggestion unless chaperoned, women can’t be trusted.” Many other tweeple also commented on how oppressive this order by the Jama Masjid administration is. Check out some of their comments:

In all honesty, I agree with Barkha Dutt and people online who are opposing this order. I mean, is it just women who are making these reels, not men? Are men not coming alone and doing “improper acts” inside the premises? This is downright a sexist mindset that not only the administration but most of our nation is projecting these days.
