Hema Malini on Karnataka hijab controversy: Religious matters should not be taken to schools – Times of India

Hema Malini has strongly reacted to the controversy that erupted after students from Government Girls PU college in the Udupi district, Karnataka, were allegedly denied entry because of their hijab, a head covering worn by Muslim women. Speaking to ANI, the actress turned politician stated, “Schools are for education and religious matters should not be taken there. Every school has a uniform that should be respected. You can wear whatever you want outside the school.”

Earlier this week, Richa Chadha tweeted in reaction to a video wherein a female student, wearing a hijab, was reportedly heckled by a group of men. “Raise your sons better! A bunch of ugly, cowards attacking a lone woman in a pack and feeling proud of it? WHAT LOSERS! Shameful. They’ll be jobless, more frustrated and penniless in a few years. What poor upbringing! No sympathy, no redemption for them. I spit on your kind,” Richa had tweeted.

“What is happening in Karnataka is provoking unrest. A religious poison wall is being erected among the students who are not lying. What is happening in the neighboring state beyond the single wall should not come to Tamil Nadu. It is time for the progressive forces to be more careful,” Kamal Haasan had shared on Twitter.
