Thiruvantpuram: Kerala Sunni leader Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Musliar described the concept of gender equality un-Islamic.

He did not stop just there, but he also added that women can never equal men and they are just fit only to deliver children.

The Chief of All India Sunni Jammiyathul Ulama said that women have no mental strength and the power to control the universe which only men possess.

He said that gender equality is never going to be a reality. This concept itself is against Islam, humanity and intellectually wrong.

According to Musliar women cannot withstand the crisis situation. He wondered if there was even a single woman cardiac surgeon.

Musliar was also in controversy for his remarks against women reservation previously. He had said that a 50 per cent reservation for women in civic polls was too high.

Musliar also dismissed the allegations of sexual exploitation happening in Madarsaas. He said anyone accusing, bring the evidence and prove it.

Kerala has the highest literacy rate in India, obviously he must not be having much of support for his remarks in his own state but this shows that there are people who are still living in the dark ages.

It is important that these people are not followed and the coming generation is given right education and values that they do not end up being like this.

Women always have been equal to men in terms of ability, output and every other aspect of life. The only difference is that in today’s world it is more understood than the world of 100 years ago but such people are desperate to take humanity back in time.

UAE-based Malayalis have expressed concern for their loved ones back home, as a Kerala youth tested positive for the Nipah virus, leading to a number of traders and travellers taking precautionary measures, the media reported.

Besides a Kerala youth being treated for testing positive for the Nipah virus (NiV), state Health Minister K.K. Shailaja on Wednesday revealed that three nurses who treated him, a friend and another person have been kept in isolation.

A total of 311 people from Thrissur, Paravur in Ernakulam district, and Thodupuzha in Idukki were also under observation.

Sharjah resident Sridevi Rajendran, who is from the same town as the infected victim, told the Khaleej Times: “He was in the same school as my son. We are very worried about the situation back home, and my son is there as well. Since there is no clarity as to where the virus has originated, people are generally tensed.”

The Nipah virus is transmitted from animals to humans; through contaminated food; or directly between people. It infects a wide range of animals and causes severe disease and death in people, making it a public health concern, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

In 2018, a Nipah scare resulted in a temporary ban on Kerala fruits and vegetables in the United Arab Emirates, and a travel advisory to the South Indian state was also issued.

A fruit and vegetable vendor in the UAE, on the other hand, decided to stop importing produce from Kerala until the scare subsides. However, no official ban has been implemented yet.

“We have temporarily stopped the import of fruits and vegetables from Kerala, which make up 25 per cent of our total produce,” said PC Kabeer, founder and CEO of FarmChimp, a company that sells source-traceable produce.

Kerala-bound travellers told the Khaleej Times that their trips would go as planned, but they would be taking “extra precaution”.

Marketing professional Anand Rajiv, who is flying to Kochi, said: “As long as I am not having local water or food from outside, I should be okay. Of course, I am worried about my health as it is not a joke.” (IANS)
