Kozhikode, Mar 23 (IBNS): The Kerala police have filed a case against Farook Training College's professor Jauhar Munnavir, who had alleged that women of her college expose their breasts through the hijab, media reports said.

Professor Munnavir, who teaches in the college in Kozhikode, said: "I am a teacher of a college where 80% of students are girls and a majority of them are Muslims. Though they wear the hijab, they expose some part of their chest defeating the very purpose of wearing them."

"They expose, you know like how we cut a slice of melon to see whether it is ripe or not.”

The professor's comment was quoted by News 18.

Following the comment, a protest on the social media broke out by several women.

A campaign 'Maaruthurakkal samaram' which literally means 'stir to bare the breasts' had started.

As a mark of protest, several women had shared their pictures with their bare chests with watermelons against them on Facebook.

In the campaign, several women have shared their nude pictures.

The case against the professor has been filed following a petition by one of the accused students.
