Speaking to the TOI, the Mufti, the self-appointed chief justice of the ‘shariat’ (Islamic) court in Kashmir, asked people to observe complete strike on Friday in protest against the film.

“I strongly condemn the act and appeal to Kashmiris to register their protest against the film and even attack US citizens if they are seen anywhere in the Valley from tomorrow,” the Mufti Azam said.

Women in Malawi plan to protest in the streets Friday over recent beatings by street-vendor mobs who beat and stripped naked several women for wearing trousers or miniskirts instead of the south Africa country’s traditional dress.

Malawi had laws until 1994 under the autocratic rule of Hastings Banda that banned women from wearing short skirts and men having long hair or flared trousers, the BBC reported. It dropped the restrictions when multi-party democracy was introduced.

However, this week street vendors attacked several women in Lilongwe and commercial capital Blantyre over their dress, saying they were enforcing a government decree.

Seodi White, a lawyer and leading women’s rights activist, told the BBC that protesters would gather Friday ”in solidarity with the victims and to express our indignation at such barbaric treatment of mothers, wives and daughters of our country”.
