Bengaluru, Mar 15: Rejecting the challenge to the rules made in some educational institutions with regard to wearing of hijab, the Karnataka High Court in a 129 page order quoted the Chief architect of the Constitution, Dr. B R Ambedkar.
What Dr. Ambedkar had observed over half a century back about the practice of purdah also equally applies to wearing of hijab.
What the Chief Architect of our Constitution observed more than half a century ago about the purdah practice equally applies to wearing of hijab there is a lot of scope for the argument that insistence on wearing of purdah, veil, or headgear in any community may hinder the process of emancipation of woman in general and Muslim woman in particular, the Bench observed.
B R Ambedkar had rightly written in 1940 about the weakness of the Congress in its dealing with the Muslim community. He wrote that the policy of concession has increased Muslim aggressiveness.
Bengaluru: From Khilafat 2.0 to Azadi, the protests around the amended citizenship law has seen all sorts of sloganeering.
The Congress has been accused of fanning sentiments in a bid to create fear in the minds of the Indian Muslims claiming that the new law would have a direct bearing on their existence in India. It has been made clear several times that the new law does not affect Indian Muslims and is only aimed at granting citizenship to the religiously persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
