In the Name of Hijab, They Want to Repeat Shaheen Bagh in Karnataka, Says Vishva Hindu Parishad


Some Muslim girls in Karnataka started demanding that they be allowed to attend schools in a burqa. On being denied permission, they started protesting. The demand quickly spread to other colleges and states.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), on Wednesday (February 9), criticised the hooliganism created in the name of the hijab. It termed hooliganism in the name of hijab ‘a jihadi anarchy’.

“It is Hijab Jihad. Six Muslim girls demanding they be allowed to attend classes in hijab is an irrational demand and is quickly spreading. Islamist organisations like PFI are orchestrating a conspiracy to spread anarchy in Karnataka,” VHP Joint General Secretary Dr Surendra Jain said.

He further said that stone-pelting by Muslims in some parts of Karnataka is proof enough that they want to create anarchy. He emphasised that Hindu society and awakened citizens of this country will foil the vested interests of the anarchists.

After the issue snowballed into a major controversy, the Karnataka government Tuesday (February 8) closed all the schools for three days.

Dr Jain said the students, who are now demanding they be allowed in a burqa, had signed a form while getting admission, which explicitly stated that they would attend classes in uniform. The sudden change of heart of the Muslim girl students reveals that it’s a part of a larger conspiracy.

“They are more interested in creating anarchy. They want to make another Shaheen Bagh in Karnataka. The Karnataka government and the awakened citizens will not let this happen,” Dr Jain said.

The Congress party had Tuesday (February 8) spread fake news that the students protesting against burqa in classrooms had disrespected tricolour. Later, it was revealed that no tricolour was removed from the flagpole, and the saffron flag was hoisted on an empty pole.

Dr Jain said, “The way Congress spread the fake news about the removal of tricolour and hoisting of saffron flag tells volumes about the conspiracy behind it. Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi should clarify whether this fake news was spread on her instructions?”

The Nehru family scions, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra, supported the demand of Muslim girl students. The Congress General Secretary Priyanka Vadra posted on Twitter, “Whether it is a bikini, a ghoonghat, a pair of jeans or a hijab, it is a woman’s right to decide what she wants to wear. This right is GUARANTEED by the Indian constitution. Stop harassing women.”

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi had posted a similar message saying, “By letting students’ hijab come in the way of their education, we are robbing the future of the daughters of India”.

Congress leader and Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Devadatt Kamat is arguing for the Muslim girls in the Karnataka High Court. In Tuesday’s (February 8) hearing, he cited Quran to emphasise that hijab is an integral part of Islam. The hearing will continue today (February 9).
