New Delhi, February 17
Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath today said no one wears hijab by choice and the custom has been forced on Muslim women.
Speaking to a news channel, he said, “No girl wears a hijab by choice. None of the Muslim women had complained earlier about ‘triple talaq’ as well, but I have seen their pain, the tears in their eyes and the agony in the eyes of their parents and family.”
On AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s remark that hijab is a fundamental right and that one day a hijab-clad girl will become the PM, Yogi said, “It is for the freedom and rights of that every girl that PM Modi put a stop on the malpractice of triple talaq. It is for ensuring justice and honour and empowerment of the girl that these decisions are being taken.” His remarks come a day after BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya said people who are “not safe in their houses need to wear hijab”. —
