Mumbai: Kids Refused To Play With A Young ‘Muslim’ Girl, These Women Decided To Challenge It
A housing society in Malad comprising around 100 families, led by women, came forward to support a Muslim family after a six-year-old girl from the family came back home crying because a couple of kids refused to play with her as she was a Muslim.
…Minutes after the little girl went to play, she came back weeping, claiming that she was taunted by some other kids for being a Muslim. The girl’s mother then wrote about her daughter’s ordeal in the society’s WhatsApp group. This prompted at least a dozen women to come out in her support. A few people personally met with her and said that they would not allow such behaviour in society.
The girl’s mother later visited the two children’s families, who claimed that their kids may have heard about such ideas from others. They claimed that the two children have been counselled so that they respect everyone.… With all the communal hate and violence being spread in the country, the society’s stance is worthy of appreciation.
