Obsecenity is not an alternative of Modesty

In Islamic or any religious setup the standard of femininity is restricted under the idea of a woman’s role as daughter, wife and mother, while in the cultural sphere it is portrayed with images of mystical, deadly and sexually enticing female.Ideal women are usually as moral and spiritual guardians, fighting against the immoral influence their evil counterparts posed, not only to their household but also to the entire society or national moral health.West label these images concerning female respectability in their Victorian style culture and Eastern cultures under strong religious norms try best to keep the modesty level of woman has high as possible by reviving positive propaganda in social circles .Respectable woman is claimed, not be part of the public sector of city life therefor demand of separate working and enjoying areas for females only is still high in eastern setups.
If women leave the periphery of the home life and come on the streets, it is claimed, they become vulnerable to corrupt or immodest values of the society.Outside life from home is always considered a male dominating area where mostly men have to decide her limits, working allowances and laws of morality.
That is why peeing in public areas by male are quite normal acceptable unethical act and on the other hand hardly any woman is seen following this practice even in very liberal societies too.
Prostitutes and prostitution is complete an erotic service provided to men and red light areas are made by men of any orthodox society but it is placed in the category of moral corruption of females in city life, however in tribal areas both genders are charged of found guilty of trespassing legal limits pertaining to legitimate relation.
Female dress codes are quite strict and particular in so-called conservative or man dominating societies where most of immoral and prohibitive acts for woman are normal ways of living of men of same community. Like extra marital relations,polygamy without proper reason, smoking and drinking in public areas etc are quite ignored sins of man in man-made society irrespective of their ages.Contrary to this same acts if adopted by woman of same community , then it surely comes in circle of immorality and honor of family comes in stake . Even the man’s dubious body language or his dirty staring like looks are not considered as violation of ethical values and usually woman are blamed for all these acts of men for their liberal way of public presentation .
Islamic or western Victorian culture,usually emphasizes on upper-class woman’s modesty at the expense of lower-class woman’s disgraced way of living which sometime forces majority to go for prostitution to raise their financial income for large families.The concept of allowable sex to female slaves in Muslim society via some Koranic verses also favors that influential elements of our society has different standard of morality .
However no body denies the rule of thumb that conservatives need more public modesty and hypocritical kind of living in order to protect young people of same community where many kind of standards are set by all ruling authority . An obscene representation or display, particularly body by females is considered as a sensual disturbance for men who feel easy to attract those ladies on the basis of their sexual attraction by lowering their criteria of judging their true ability as better human being.
These days the idea of modern women portrayed in sexy looks has come in our society through many ways.It is inducted via fake Indian movie culture and through western demands where body gestures of females are considered as powerful impact to market ideas and arts. Sometimes it is demand of man of society to have a company of smarter woman in his life or professional field rather than typical old-fashioned looks.
In present era the female identity is seemingly popularize through gestures of female sexuality while at the same time condemning women too who fell into a life of moral desuetude.The idea is very simple the woman more attractive in public can withdraw attraction of many males and can be reason of creating jealousy among females working in the same vicinity.Modesty and unselfishness like virtues are highly praised by all and then pass by for chasing more attractive looking woman of trendy looks.
So this trend is contributing a lot to early and extra marital affairs, increasing divorce rate in search of better females and more access to adultery due to all time appealing attractions around. Double triple standards of patriarch societies also increase the frustration level of girl child who is still being considered as serious liability of any family or less qualify for affection of love ones specially parents.These neglected and love hungry girls opt all choices of attracting partner for their assumed secure life.
Modesty in attitudes of people is flourished through squarely and evenly expanding its worth to both genders as chastity of both male and female characters altogether can raise the moral values and improved behavior of present and next generation.In case of imbalance of moral fulcrum toward more strong gender on the basis of power control, the dictatorial attitude and the obscenity( a short-lived but very strong attraction) can produce abnormal reaction/demands of people,those would surely collide with prescribed and mandatory rules of an Islamic society.
