As first apprehensive, then relieved, faithful at mosques watched as uniformed officers met them & joined in iftar. ACP Hegde brought his considerable experience in keeping the peace to bear in Madiwala, #Bengaluru

At a time when #Hindu fundamentalists, aided by govt, have pushed or enforced #hijab ban, boycotts, demanded bans on halal meat & azaan over loudspeakers, Hegde’s personal touch helped locals recall inter-faith traditions. 3/n

The movie is an attempt to fan the hatred against a minority community in #India by #BJP & #RSS

यह फिल्म भाजपा और आरएसएस द्वारा भारत में अल्पसंख्यक समुदाय के खिलाफ नफरत फैलाने का एक प्रयास है
कश्मीर फाइल्स मुसलमानों के खिलाफ हिंसा भड़का रही है, इसलिए फिल्म बोर्ड, मूवी सिनेमा और स्ट्रीमिंग ऐप्स की नैतिक जिम्मेदारी है कि वे इसे प्रतिबंधित और बहिष्कार करें।
The #Kashmir Files is inciting violence against #Muslims so film boards, movie cinemas and streaming apps have a moral responsibility to ban and boycott it.

L'extrait - Les convertis de Liverpool

« ʿAbduLlāh Quilliam parvient à réunir autour de lui quelque six cents convertis à l’Islam, dont (...) Michael Hall, un ancien prédicateur protestant, Robert Stanley, un maire conservateur à la retraite qui embrasse l’islam...

...à l’âge honorable de 70 ans et prend le nom de Rashīd, ainsi que plusieurs notables et grands professeurs. Dans le monde musulman, (...) son travail ne passe pas non plus inaperçu, le sultan ottoman Abdülhamid II lui accorde le titre honorifique de Shaykh al­-Islām...

...des Îles Britanniques en 1311H (1894G), et l’émir d’Afghanistan, le shāh d’Iran ou encore le sultan du Maroc – à qui il rend personnellement visite – reconnaissent également son statut de chef de file des musulmans de son lointain archipel.

Muslim girls have been wearing hijab to school in several schools across the country for quite a while. It has hardly been an issue until now.Schools themselves did not think it created a conflict with the uniform. In fact in several schools the hijab was in the color of uniform
By raising this issue now the opportunity is created for Hindutva groups/Govt to force schools into taking a stand. This will further alienate the Muslim community and importantly, put their own girls in a difficult situation. Educating the Muslim women is the best chance we have
of solving issues of fundamentalism within the community and ensuring their greater social integration.Hatred should not be allowed to trump common sense.The choice of wearing a hijab must be left to Muslim girls,not her parents,not the State, not religious preachers. #HijabBan

1. I disagree with Karnataka High Court's judgement on #hijab. It’s my right to disagree with the judgement & I hope that petitioners appeal before SC

2. I also hope that not only @AIMPLB_Official but also organisations of other religious groups appeal this judgement...
... as it has suspended fundamental rights to freedom of religion, culture, freedom of speech and expression

3. Preamble to the Constitution says that one has LIBERTY of thought, EXPRESSION, belief faith, and WORSHIP....
...If it is MY belief & faith that covering my head is essential then I have a right to EXPRESS it as I deem fit. For a devout Muslim, Hijab is also an act of worship.

If you wonder why Bengali Hindus are so deracinated and Hindu hating bigots, it is from this circular from 1989 which instructed schools to removed "Aushuddho" from school history textbooks.

From Arun Shourie's book #EminentHistorians.

Just visited the Adi Shankaracharya's establishment (Sharada Peetham) at Sringeri, Karnataka. What surprised me, & even shocked me was the fact that at the free meal (Prasadam) served there,

I saw some women wearing full #Burqa , with a band of their children & their men eating the Prasadam.

Mind you, Adi Shankaracharya represents core #Hinduism and people visiting the place are staunch #Hindus .

Obviously, the meal cooked was not at all #Halal and yet these #Burqa - wearing females and their families had no problem eating their meal there.

Needless to say, no one objected to them partaking the meal and they were served as happily as anyone else.

The Advocate General has completed arguments from perspective of whether the Government has any say in deciding uniforms of PU Colleges. Now, they are rebutting submissions which claimed that Hijab will be an ERP & is a fundamental right. #HijabRow
“The method and manner in which GO is assailed must be taken note of, not challenged earlier,” advocate general adds #HijabRow
Advocate General: Article 25(2) speaks of power of state to restrict or regulate by way of order. Similarly, 19(1) right can be restricted by “law to be made by state”

Lets go back to basics. What is the core question?
Might be easier to define what it is NOT.
1. It is not whether Hijab is mandated by Islam. You could have a decades-long debate on that Q and still not get universal agreement. It Does NOT matter.
2. It is not whether a Hijab (or for that matter a #Ghunghat, a turban, a #mangalsutra or whatever) is a regressive practice. Women are repressed in all communities. And you could hardly argue that @IlhanMN or Halimah Yacob suffer repression
#Hijab and repression are NOT linked.
3. The Q is not "Why do some women insist on wearing a #Hijab?". You could, with equal stupidity, ask "Why do some women not wear a Hijab or a Ghunghat?"
