Owaisi slams Cong over hijab ban in K’taka; targets Revanth

Must read

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President and Hyderabad MP, Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday slammed the Congress government in Karnataka for banning head scarves during recruitment exams.
The Hyderabad MP also criticised the Karnataka government for not revoking the hijab ban imposed by the BJP government in 2021. Owaisi also equated the Congress to RSS. He took to Twitter and said, “CongRSS govt has banned hijab in exams. It has also not revoked the previous BJP govt’s hijab ban. Telangana CongRSS chief RSS Anna wants to apply “Karnataka model” in Telangana. This is why he keeps abusing sherwani and avoids being seen with skull cap-wearing Muslims. Kapde dekh kar pehchaano, as his bestie Modi once said.”
The AIMIM supremo and the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President have been targeting each other during the campaign ahead of Telangana Assembly elections. While Revanth accused Owaisi of wearing “Khaki knicker under his pyjamas”, the latter termed the TPCC chief as an ‘RSS puppet’.
Earlier on November 6, a woman appearing for the Karnataka Public Service Commission examination was asked to remove her ‘mangalsutra’ before entering the exam hall. After protests by Hindutva groups, the KEA has now allowed women to wear mangalsutra and toe rings in the examination hall while restricting other jewellery.
The recruitment exams of various boards and corporations are to be held on November 18 and 19 across the State.
Earlier in October, the Karnataka government had allowed students to wear the hijab, during competitive exams. Higher Education Minister MC Sudhakar had allowed aspirants to come to examination centres wearing the hijab leading to widespread  protests by right-wing groups.
However, after complaints about usage of Bluetooth devices by certain students the State government this time decided to enforce the ban.
