Hijab row sponsored by BJP in Karnataka, charges SDPI

The social democratic party of India (SDPI) on Wednesday charged the BJP with 'sponsoring' and 'promoting' thehijab-saffron shawl issue in educational institutions in Karnataka.

Addressing reporters here, SDPI state general secretary B R Bhaskar Prasad alleged that the entire issue is a ‘criminal act’ sponsored by the BJP government in the state. Noting that the constitution never barred Muslim women wearinghijab, he alleged that the issue was created by a college principal which was later taken up by the Sangh Parivar outfits.

He sought to know whyhijabshould be banned as a religious symbol when Hindu symbols like thread and ‘nama’ are allowed. He also accused the Congress of adopting ‘double standards’ on the issue.
