Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on the uproar over hijab in Karnataka: In our country, minority people have equal economic, social, educational rights. That's why any kind of ruckus on hijab is not okay. Institutions that have their own dress code, don't hit the communal nail on it. Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said, "This has been done deliberately to polarize votes, some people are trying to fight Hindu-Muslim but Karnataka has always been united. Political parties are working behind this."
The effect of the Hijab controversy, which started in Karnataka just before the assembly elections to be held in five states of the country, is now visible in other states. Students are seen protesting in Delhi against the ban on hijab in the government college of Udupi, Karnataka, while people from the hijab side launched a signature campaign in Maharashtra.
In Udupi, Karnataka girl students wearing hijab to a class at a government pre-university college were asked to leave the college premises. This issue has now spread to different parts of the state as well.
