Oxirgi paytlarda Avaz Oxunni chiqishlarini maqtashganini ko’p guvohi bo’layapman. Bugun man ham qiziqib ko’rib ko’rdim, rostdan ham xalqni o’zini odatlari, turmush – tarzini kulguli jihatlarini ko’rsatgan holda chiqishlar qilar ekan. Aytishganlaridek Hojiboy Tojiboyni izdoshlari deganlaricha bor… manga ham chiqishlari yoqayapti deb turgandim, toki… mana shu yerigacha.

Nima emish: Hadisda yozilgan ekan-ki eri urgan ayollarni o’sha kaltak yegan joyidan narigi dunyoda gul o’sib chiqar emish. Qanaqa qilib ommani oldida ayollarni tahqirlashni targ’ib qilib o’tirish mumkin? Keyin yana savol berdi: – Eridan kaltak yemagan ayollar qo’lini ko’tarsin? Butun boshli tomoshabinlar orasida faqatgina uch ayol qo’l ko’tardi xolos.

Eng achinarlisi – har bir gapidan keyin omma kular, qarsak chalar edi, jumladan ayollar ham.

Oilada ayollarga nisbatan qilinadigan zulmni bu darajada oddiy qabul qilinishi, uni din bilan xaspo’stlash va buni ustidan ayollarning o’zining ham kulib o’tirishi – fojea emasmi?

Shu mavzuga aloqadorligi uchun aytib o’tmoqchiman: butun dunyoda 8 mart Xalqaro ayollarni huquqlarini himoya qilish kuni bo’lib, turli ijtimoiy faollik aksiyalari, huquqiy anjumanlar va hokazo tadbirlar o’tkaziladi. Bari teng huquqlilikni targ’ib qilish maqsadida. Bizda-chi, ayollar bir kunlik gul-u, sovg’alar bilan aldanib qo’ya qolamiz, 8 mart bizda Xotin- qizlar bayrami. Yilning qolgan 365/4 kuni yana kundalik hayotmizga qaytib yashayveramiz. Manimcha shunisi hammaga maq’ul shekilli.

I was watching a stand up performance of a well-known Uzbek performer, was enjoying it until… He said that it is written in a Hadith book (narrative describing activities/words of prophet Muhammad) that women beaten by their husband are the happiest as from those bruises flowers would grow once they are in Jannah (Paradise). How one simply can promote gender based violence in public? He asked again- ‘Can women raise their hands who are never beaten by their husbands?’ Only three women did.
The worst is the crowd was applauding and cheering him including women…

How domestic violence against women can be accepted at this level, masked with religion and women can laugh at themselves- isn’t it a tragedy?

I wanted to add another point here. March 8 is the International Women’s’ Rights day across the Globe, the gender equality conferences are held, various activism campaigns are organized. However, among Uzbeks it is celebrated as a holiday, a Women’s day. Women get flowers, gifts and are treated ‘well’ on this day. The other 365/4 days of the year, they are back to their ‘normal’ lives. And oddly enough they seem to be happy with it.
