In a series of events that have now turned violent, a section of female students at Women’s PU College in Udupi, Karnataka first started protesting against their college administration for not allowing them into classrooms with hijab. Now some of the women have gone further and have claimed that the company Apple is Islamophobic.
Reportedly, Muslim women have claimed that Apple’s iPhones have facial recognition feature that doesn’t work with Burqa which makes only eyes visible as per the Islamic rule.
Pakistani activist for female education, Malala has condemned Apple for not respecting all religions equally. Malala tweeted “Every person’s retina is different and is enough for facial recognition feature, Apple has no justification for being an Islamophobe.
