Vogue cover model ‘murdered’ for not wearing Islamic clothing


Studies show by the year 2050 over 2.8 billion Muslims will live in the world.

Over half of these people are estimated to be females.

Gender inequality affects the mass majority of Muslim women and continues to get worse as the population rises.

A stunning Vogue cover model has been murdered by Muslim extremists in Bangladesh because she didn’t wear Islamic clothing, her family says.

Rauda Athif, 21, a Muslim Maldivian woman who was featured on the cover of Vogue India in October, was a second-year student at Islami Bank Medical College in Rajshahi, Bangladesh. She was found hanged in her dorm room on March 29.

The Bangladesh government performed an autopsy and ruled her death a suicide. Rauda was buried Saturday.

But her brother, Rayyan Athif, said the model was actually murdered, and the killing was staged to appear as a suicide. He told the U.K. Sun Thursday that Muslim extremists killed his sister. Rayyan said the extremists were angry after she defended people who were bullied over their religious beliefs.

“There have been a series of murders in Bangladesh which have been staged to look like suicides, and Islamic extremists have been suspected to be behind these atrocities,” he said.

Just two hours away, in Dhaka, atheist blogger Avijit Roy was hacked to death by Muslims with machetes on the campus of Dhaka University in 2015. After a recent visit to her homeland of Bangladesh, New York Times contributor Lipika Pelham wrote: “Looking around, I realized that most women were covered in black burqas or hijabs — a style that I had seen in such large numbers only in the Middle East. Many of their male companions wore long white dishdashas and skullcaps.”

It happened again in 2016: An English professor at Rajshahi University was murdered by Islamic militants wielding machetes after he was accused of “calling to atheism.”

At the Islamic school in Rajshahi, Rayyan explained: “[Rauda’s] style of clothing was branded as ‘immodest’ and ‘un-Islamic’ even though she adhered to the dress code in the college premises by wearing a veil covering her face.”

“But she was criticized for wearing jeans and was repeatedly told she couldn’t wear it at the Muslim college – which has a lot of extremist connections and support. Other students have also been subjected to this type of bullying.”
