Now, I know this may sound like any other normal day case, but the kicker is that prosecutors say that Hussain was re-enacting scenes from the popular book and film, Fifty Shades of Grey. Prosecutors say Hussain had asked the woman if she had wanted to do something dangerous, she agreed, and he sexually assaulted her. This was however all denied by the defendant and was stated to be completely consensual. Multiple outrages and cheers have been voiced since the case was dropped.
Feminist speakers have been voicing their disapproval through social media. Students from our own university have a different opinion and agree with the case being dropped.
“I’m glad he’s free, I didn’t believe in the charges that were brought up against Mohammed, he seemed like a nice kid involved in his community,” said BenU student, Zubair Tariq.
Another student, Mohammed Mohsin disagrees with the charges saying “I don’t believe him for a second, he has ruined the image of Muslim students across the country and has just added onto the multiple stereotypes we receive as a religion and community.”
Muslims students and the student body alike have been disputing amongst themselves trying to justify or denounce Hussain’s alleged actions. Whatever people may think, at the end of the day the judge declared Mohammed Hussain innocent, and the young man can finally carry on with the rest of his life after this whole ordeal.
