Karnataka Hijab row: The Hijab controversy is escalating in Karnataka. Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has also jumped into the fray. According to Malala, the situation on Tuesday was ‘horrifying’. Women’s rights activist Malala urged Indian leaders to ensure that Muslim women are not marginalized, according to a news report. I am horrified that girls with hijabs are excluded from school. Indian leaders need to stop marginalizing Muslim women. BJP MLA and national general secretary CT Ravi have reacted angrily to this post. “Who are you to interfere in our internal affairs?” he wrote. Wouldn’t he be better off hiding behind his burqa?
On Tuesday, the police had to resort to lathi charges and tear gas shelling after violent protests and stone-pelting broke out in colleges to know that girls with hijabs are not allowed to attend school.”.across several districts. Because of the deteriorating atmosphere, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai declared a three-day holiday for all schools and colleges. Araga Gyanendra said no one should force the police to use force. Karnataka High Court appealed to the students and the people to maintain peace, saying that some people want to keep the matter alive.
