Shri Saraswati Devi gives knowledge to all, She does not discriminate ! : Rahul Gandhi

Hijab row in Karnataka colleges

Editorial comments

  • During Vasant Panchami, when the Congress Government denied permission to worship Shri Saraswati Devi at Bhojshala in Dhar, Madhya Pradesh, why did Rahul Gandhi not remember the Goddess then ?
  • Rahul Gandhi conveniently remembers the Hindu Deities while favouring Muslims !
  • Why is Rahul Gandhi not talking about the fact that Congress, which is trying to declare a Sikh leader as its chief ministerial candidate instead of a Hindu leader in Punjab, thereby discriminating based on the religion ?

New Delhi – Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has come out in support of Muslim college girls in Karnataka intending to wear hijab in the Government colleges. He tweeted, ‘By letting students’ hijab come in the way of their education, we are robbing the future of the daughters of India. Ma Saraswati gives knowledge to all. She doesn’t differentiate’. The wearing of the hijab has been banned in Government colleges at Udupi, Kundapur in Karnataka. Hindu students have demanded that we should be allowed to wear saffron stoles. In some colleges, students are wearing saffron stoles.

Congress leader in Karnataka and former Deputy Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the move was an attempt to deprive the girls of education. (Congress leaders supporting the demand to keep aside the discipline of schools and colleges for the sake of Muslim appeasement ! – Editor)

What is the culture expected by those who ban girls from wearing hijab and wearing short clothes ? – Jitendra Awhad

Editorial comment

Students are expected to wear uniforms in schools and colleges. How is it possible that Jitendra Awhad does not know that it is a breach of school discipline if everyone starts wearing religious attire ?

Jitendra Awhad, a Minister in the Maharashtra Government and a leader of the Nationalist Congress Party, asked, ‘They don’t want girls wearing short fashionable clothes. They also ban girls who wear full-body clothes and hijab on their heads from entering colleges. What exactly is the culture that they expect ?’ “BJP says ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Save daughter, educate daughter)’; but if she is a Muslim, then it says ‘Beti Hatao (get rid of her)’,” he said.
