The purdah practice requires married muslim women to stay in separate rooms behind a curtain or dress in all enveloping clothes in order to stay out to the sight of men or strangers.
But Azanat bashiru told the court that mumin bashiru, her husband of two years and father of their two children did not tell her before they got married in 2014 that she would be put in purdah. This is not our Agreement, I cannot be covering my body with black
