(Fatwa: 152/D=27/K)

Your faith-loving feeling is admirable and your sense of honour towards your sister is right. The way your sister is acting is wrong. It is extremely undesirable in Islam for a woman to go out for a job without hijab, to wear tight dress or to have relations with strange males. You should convince your parents, brothers and the sister as well with politeness and wisdom. Ask them to study any Islamic and religions book which creates in them interest towards Islam and Islamic values. Get your sister attend the Islamic functions where sermons and lectures are organized for women. You should neither curse them nor adopt any violent method; rather consider the act as bad and pray to Allah for betterment.  

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
