The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to close the veil around them. That will be better, so that they can be recognized and not disturbed. Allah is ever forgiving, merciful.” (33:59) The corollary of that is that women who don’t close their veils around them are easy prey to be teased, and are even asking for it.

The clip of the incident was shared by a Twitter user, Beaver_R6 (Aditya), who said, “A Korean streamer was harassed by these guys in Khar last night while she was broadcasting live in front of over 1000 people. This is disgusting, and some action needs to be taken against them. This can not go unpunished”.

Quoting Aditya, Mhyochi said: “Last night on the broadcast, there was a guy who harassed me. I did my best not to escalate the situation and leave because he was with his friend. And some people said that he was initiated by me being too friendly and joining in the conversation. He makes me think about the broadcast again.”…

In a video broadcast over six and a half hours long on November 29 on Mhyochi’s channel, the incident occurred at 6:20 a.m. onwards. Mhyochi was walking down a busy street at night when two men on bicycles approached him. Being polite and cheerful, she responded to a man dressed in a black shirt who called out to her.

He said, “Come with me and sit on my bike.” She asked: “Where are we going?” The man didn’t respond and kept pulling her. She repeatedly said no and said, “I’m dressed,” giving the impression that she couldn’t sit in the dress she was wearing.

The man wrapped his arm around her again and tried to kiss her a second time. Mhyochi realized that she had to leave the place immediately and tried to avoid any confrontation. She started to walk away immediately. A few seconds later, she said, “Time to go home,” she still wasn’t done. The man and her friend began to follow her and again asked her to sit with them on the bike. She then asked for her phone number. It seemed that she gave a fake number to get out of the situation as soon as possible…

In a story on his Instagram account, he said: “Last night on the broadcast, there was a guy who was harassing me. I did my best not to escalate the situation and leave because he was with his friend. And some people said that he was initiated by me being too friendly and joining in the conversation. Or am I just being too naive and shouldn’t be walking alone or drinking alone in a bar. I’m tired of people talking about me like they know me well.”

Mumbai Police have responded to his tweet seeking information about the incident. OpIndia has messaged Mhyochi for more details on the matter.
