According to Islamic tradition Muslim women should wear hijab like dress called Makkana or Muftah. It is popularly used traditional wear in Malabar areas like Kozhikode, Kannur, Malappuram in Kerala. A speech given by Kozhikode Farook college professor regarding present dress code of Muslim students in Farook Training college had become controversial. This started beginning of Maru thurakkal samaram which is getting popular with hashtag campaigns supporting it.

This controversial speech was given by Professor Jauhar Munnavir of Farook college in Calicut during March 2018. An audio clip of this speech has become viral in social media. Many female social activists who are well known personalities in Kerala had come up against this issue. Rehana Fathima, Diya Sana, Reshmi R Nair, Arathy SA had responded against remarks made by Professor Jauhar Munnavir.

Farook college professor compared breasts to vathakka which is local word used to mention the fruit watermelon. Vathakka, Bathakka, Thannimathanga are common terms used to denote watermelon. This comparison made by a college professor in Kozhikode Farook college had crossed all limits. He was trying to educate everyone about importance of covering body parts as per Islamic tradition.

This professor criticized that new generation students studying in this college are using dresses like leggings under pardha. He also said that Shawl is used instead of Makkana to cover face and body. According to him dresses like Shawl only covers head portion and not chest. He asked everyone to strictly use Makkana which is the most Islamic traditional way of wearing dresses.
