0 Sexual Harassment Is Just For Sissies

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This morning while I was scrolling my fb timeline, a link from FJP website popped out with title فيديو التحرش فضيحة شوهت تنصيب السيسي (Sisi's inauguration marred by a video showing apparent sexual assault). The news was actually from the newspaper Times. I watched the video (it's 18SX btw) and had no idea of what was happening. It was happened in Tahrir, just a few kilometers from my place. A girl was surrounded by a group of men (they don't deserve to be men) doing something inappropiate and made the girl naked. I have no idea what did other people there at that time do when they saw the incident.

Last week also Egypt's government issued a new anti-sexual harassment law following many cases occured lately in Egypt. I also did read a survey regarding sexual harassment in Egypt and it said more than 90% of women in Egypt had experienced sexual harassment verbally or physically. And suprisingly, I can't believe that I am living in this country right now and for the next 3 and a half years.

Although I rarely being a mushrif, I really feel the need for girls not to walk alone especially at night, at least with other girl if no mushrif.

What is happening to you Egypt. The mofti says that Sisi deserves to be a president but the consequences say not. I always hope that this country will be the real 'ummu dunya' like people always claim. May Allah bless all the people who are consistently trying to change and build a new Egypt. They are really strong and real men, not like those sissies on the streets.
