Muslim women write to president on hijab issue
Aurangabad, Feb 10 (UNI): Muslim women, on behalf of Harun Mukati Foundation, on Thursday submitted a memorandum to President Ram Nath Kovind through the divisional commissioner, seeking a ban on RSS on hijab issue and also legal action against the youths who allegedly misbehaved with the girl students wearing veil in educational institutes in Karnataka.
Hijab has been banned for Muslim girl students in schools and colleges of Karnataka. The matter is in court.
A delegation of women submitted the memorandum to the President and state Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray through the divisional commissioner of Aurangabad.
In the memorandum, they stated that the country is governed by a Constitution that has given women religious freedom to dress suitably for their own protection and the Sharia law of Islam should not be ignored as well.
“The alleged incident was an attempt to create discontent in 57 Muslim countries around the world, thus bringing disrepute to India all over the globe. There is a sense of dissatisfaction in the society following the incident of racist attack on hijab,” it added.
Hence, the delegation urged the President and the Chief Minister of Maharashtra to ban the RSS and also take action against the Chief Minister of Karnataka.
