Social media has been a boon for every modern citizen of the world. The advent of social media has not only increased connectivity but also brought in the world literally within the holds of our palms. But, like everything else under the sun, the social media also has its set of cons. The foremost being the evolution of a category of people, who take it upon themselves to judge every other person they come across on internet. The latest video from Malappuram is an evidence of the same.
On November 5, Monday, a video featuring three women in hijab went viral on social media. The video showed the three women dancing to the popular number ‘Jimikki Kammal’ in an attempt to spread awareness about the dreadful disease, AIDS, as a part of World AIDS Day celebrations in Malappuram.

While the dance was held for a noble cause, not many seemed happy with it. While for some the reason being they were Muslims and not allowed to dance, for some others, it was just about shaming women.
There's no disgrace in dancing, but when an act is done for cheap popularity, there will be some people opposing it too.
Criticism is integrated in showbiz

However, there were some people who were applauding the girls to come out and spread the awareness about such an important cause as AIDS.
People should become religious when it comes to girls. Religion is same for all.
One should do some introspection before abusing these girls.

They can dance…its their life….they can do whatever they want to do….live and let live…life is too short for all these

More and more girls should come forward and celebrate the openness which India as a country bestows as a right to its citizens. India.Kerala should become the best example for liberated, yet decent women working for the best interests of the society promoting openness.

Needless to say, the video went viral across all platforms of social media, with many people hailing the girls for their effort in spreading the awareness of AIDS.
It may be remembered that earlier this year a report was furnished by the government that showcased a mammoth 58% fall AIDS-related deaths in the country. Yet, India stands at third in the list of countries with the highest number of AIDS patients, right after Nigeria and South Africa. Going by this report, it can be said that it’s still a long way to go for India to become an AIDS-free nation.
