In cases of sexual assault against women, the victim might be asked questions like what was she wearing? leading to the implication that she was somehow "asking for it" (i.e. provoking her attacker) if she was wearing a certain style of clothing, thereby giving the perpetrator a mitigating factor. It's a form of victim blaming:
A typical expression of victim blaming is the "asking for it" idiom, e.g. "she was asking for it" said of a victim of violence or sexual assault.
I'm wondering what would happen in a sexual assault case brought to a sharia court where the female victim was wearing hijab.
Question: Are women in hijab assumed not to be "asking for it" in sexual assault cases?
It's possible the sharia could interpret hijab as an unequivocal expression that she is not "asking for it".
