Why should I be scared of telling the truth? It is true that I am a victim of abuse at a madarsa.” Kanthapuram had also said that gender inequality was un-Islamic and women didn’t possess the mental strength that men did. “How many female heart surgeons do you see in the world? They do not have the mental strength. Men do. Women will shiver before the controlling power of a man. Women have other capabilities that men don’t.
