Reports say that a professor at Kozhikode's Farook Training College was recorded saying that women in his college do not cover their chests with hijab, instead show part of it "like a slice of red watermelon".

She further added, "Just because people may find my breasts attractive, doesn't mean they are entitled to violate me or my body". He also said that they deliberately expose their chests.

Being judgemental and moral policing has been deeply ingrained in our society so much that girls are no strangers to people making disgusting remarks on their dresses, their choice to drink, and even object to women admitting that they enjoy sex. They wear hijab in a way their chest is not covered. One of the body parts that man is highly attracted to is a woman's bosom. "They expose, you know like how we cut a slice of melon to see whether it is ripe or not", Munavvir said.

Talking about Jauhar's remarks, CA Jawahar, Principal of Farook Training College said that the speech was made 3 months ago. "We have nothing to do with it and no student has filed a complaint in this regard", he defended the teacher, saying only a portion of his speech was circulated.
