If not hijab, should we wear bikini? Asaduddin Owaisi asks | Hyderabad News. indiabusinessport.com

HYDERABAD: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi has said when Sikhs can wear pagdi (turban), Christians can wear a cross and Hindus vibudhi on their foreheads, why can’t Muslim girls wear Hijab in the classrooms.
“If not hijab, should we wear a bikini? If you want, you can wear it. Why are you bent upon finishing off our religion, culture and traditions like hijab and beard. Banning Hijab will send a wrong message to the girls from Sikh, Hindu, Christian and other communities that Muslims are lesser citizens compared to them. If freedom of religion and culture is allowed, they will learn each other’s culture and the nation will only get united and stronger,” Owaisi said.
Addressing a public meeting organised near Golconda fort here on Thursday night, the AIMIM chief said divisive forces are trying to wipe out Muslim culture. “But Muslims will not leave India. They will fight democratically to achieve all the rights guaranteed to the citizens in the Constitution of India. We will stay in India and will also die here. We will not get intimidated by the BJP and RSS,” said Owaisi.
Referring to the split verdict of the Supreme Court on hijab, the Hyderabad MP said one of the judges, Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia observed that asking a pre university schoolgirl to take off her hijab at her school gate, is an invasion on her privacy and dignity. Justice Dhulia opined that asking the girl student to remove the hijab at the school gate is violative of the Fundamental Right given to her under Article 19(1)(a) and 21 of the Constitution of India.
Owaisi played a video clip on the stage and said: “A police officer while addressing huge crowds in Sultanpur, Uttar Pradesh, has said he will pick up and kill Muslims (chun chun ke maroonga), will bury the Muslims (Mitti mein mila doonga), will run bulldozers on their houses.”
“Listen to the language of the UP police officer. After taking oath on the Constitution, a police officer is talking like this. And Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief minister Yogi Adityanath will not react on this issue,” he said.
