Dagestani social network users condemn a video with young woman dancing in hijab

The publication of a video with a young woman dancing in a hijab has provoked sharp critical posts of social network users.

On December 11, a video with a young woman dancing in a hijab in front of a video camera in a room was posted on the community page tut.dagestan.ru in Instagram. Most commentators found the young woman's behaviour to be defiant. Some of the social network users have also expressed the opinion that the young woman should not remain alive after the publication of the video.

Meanwhile, other social network users warned participants of the discussion from the condemnation of the young woman.

The young woman on the video has no "relationship" to Dagestan, reported user sham_nur100. "She is an Ossetian woman and she is married to a Turkish man," he has explained.

The "Caucasian Knot" has also reported that on December 10, the company "Comedy Club Production" apologized for a performance in which an actress played a woman from an escort service agency.
