“Sahi se eik hi dafa bol do, we dont want to do anything to protect women and we want to keep stripping you of dignity because we can.”
Also no more of, Islam gives women all the rights.
Unfortunately most here dont follow even Islam's basic tenants of human decency but know how to preach it to others like an Islamic scholar
