Hijab row | BJP conspiring against Muslim students, says Siddaramaiah

2 years ago
Karnataka Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah on Sunday attacked the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai-led state administration and termed their order on uniform code, "a conspiracy to obstruct Muslim girls from getting an education."

“The [Karnataka] government could have solved this [hijab row] problem. If students can wear a turban, why can't students wear a hijab? Girls have been wearing them for a long time, there was no breach of peace then. Govt asking people to maintain peace is just drama," he said.
