Mumbai. Leading fashion designing institutes across India have decided to hire services of Mohammad Akil Mallik, the man who earlier slapped television celebrity Gauhar Khan for wearing short clothes.

Akil will become a fashion consultant for these institutes and guide budding fashion designers on the type of clothes they should be designing and marketing.

With growing number of people having expertise on what clothes women should wear, the fashion institutes thought it made sense to have one on board so that their product is safe to wear.

“What’s the point of designing expensive clothes and selling them in the market, if in the end wearer of those clothes are going to get slapped in public,” Director of NIFT explained the reason behind institutes decided to honor Akil with the consulting project.

Akil is now going to guide students as to how they can aesthetically cover various body parts through a dress so that it does not enrage otherwise peace loving people like him.

“He is even helping us design a special burqa, in which he claims women can do practically everything, be it anchoring a TV show, tanning on the beach, doing yoga, washing utensils, cooking food, etc.,” NIFT director confirmed the ambitious project of Akil.

“He argues that god has created every woman as equal, then why should their faces and other body parts appear different? Therefore they must be covered with a standardized dress, so that there is no difference and discrimination,” he added.

Since Akil would be interacting with many female students too, his hands and legs would be tied to ensure there is no untoward incident.

When Faking News asked Akil why did he tease and touch Gauhar inappropriately before slapping her if he cared so much about dignity of Muslim women, he replied, “I wanted to explain how a skimpy clad women could invite eve teasing in public and was just trying to demonstrate that.”

Meanwhile fashion photographers and news organizations have objected to this move by the fashion institutes, claiming it to be an attack on their content strategy freedom of expression and choice.
