Within a community, a man’s individual value and worth is measured by his ability to provide and protect. This duty often extends to his immediate family, including his mother, aunts, sisters, wives, and daughters. However, when a woman in our community is subjected to public harassment, it is the collective responsibility of the entire Muslim Ummah to stand up and defend her.
According to Ibn Ishaq, the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) fought against the Banu Qaynuqa’ tribe after a Muslim man was killed while defending the honor of a Muslim woman. The story tells that a member of the Banu Qaynuqa’ had lifted the skirt of a woman in the market. When a companion of the Prophet tried to protect her honor, he was killed. This led to the eventual exile of the entire tribe from Madinah.
Recently, a so-called liberal man became triggered because a woman was criticizing Iranian women that had mocked her. Unable to contain his bloodthirsty rage, this liberal man then doxxed her on Twitter, doing everything he could to try and get her fired from the hospital in which she works.
Read through the entire thread to see for yourself just how despicable this man is.
Hi @UCSDHealth – can you explain why Deniz Tont, who is employed by you, is posting videos on TikTok taunting and making fun of Iranians? How many of the people that she serves are Iranian? How is this okay?#IranRevolution2022 #mahsaami̇ni̇ pic.twitter.com/7D64XHG8pW

This man’s actions are reprehensible and cowardly. Men like him are weak and ungrateful. They only have the courage to behave poorly towards isolated women. They hide in the shadows when a woman is with her mahram, only showing their true colors when she is alone. Their cowardice is only matched by their hypocrisy.
This pathetic excuse of a man, Omeed Boghraty, claims to support “freedom of expression” and “women’s rights” in Iran, yet he strives towards having a woman fired from her job for merely expressing her personal opinions.
He couldn’t handle or tolerate her ideas.
How dare this woman not express liberal values!
He was absolutely seething. His blood was evidently boiling. All he could see was red. Eyes bloodshot. Head pounding. Frothing at the mouth.
What did he do?
He fabricated baseless accusations of “racism against Iranians,” when it seems the reality of the situation is that she was simply criticizing the anti-Hijab movement which has been promoted recently in the media.
No one should be given a free pass to harass the women within our community.
We must stand united and make it clear that this kind of disgusting behavior will not be tolerated.
And of course, this is pretty obvious but, whatever we do, it must be within the limits of the law. Just getting that out there because these brainless liberals will probably start claiming that simply defending a sister who is being manhandled online is somehow an incitement towards violence.
