Educational institutions becoming battle grounds for religious issuesA fight over a mere piece of cloth overhead has now turned into an ugly battle of who can wear what based on religion in educational premises. This issue could have been easily resolved by letting the girls wear their headscarf or hijab if they wish to do. They argue that if Sikhs are allowed to have their turbans then why shouldn't they be allowed to wear hijab? The petty things are taking a newer form with blinded followers wearing saffron-clad cloth on their necks.
Why suddenly were these girls stopped from wearing their hijab when they have worn it earlier as well? The social media is piled up with questions like if they want to introduce a uniform civil code, why have the idol of goddess Saraswati in school? Why prayers, why tikas and Raksha dhaga is allowed?
I don't agree with all the points for which these girls stand as it might impact those girls who don't want to wear such things and they are imposed on it, but I do respect their right to choose something they believe in.
What is your take on this? If Hijab is wrong then so is the Sikh turban, so is the tilak on forehead, so is the Saraswati pooja.
Do you think this issue is getting fanned unnecessarily for the political motives behind it?
Please do read the whole topic I have written above before commenting or considering me against any one religion.
