Zaira Wasim’s support for Hijab amid ban row stems from purely ‘Islamic reasons’

Published Date:

Zaira Wasim has spoken up about the ongoing HIjab ban row. The issue that began in Karnataka has now taken the country by storm, leaving people polarised over whethery it should be permitted or not.

Dangal actress, Zaira, took to Instagram to share an interestingly eye-opening note highlighting how Hijab, an obligation in Islamic is being politicised in the name of empowerment.

She began the note by condemning the ban on hijab in Karnataka schools and colleges. Zaira Wasim calls the hijab an obligation to God and not a choice. She further goes on to write, “I, as a woman who wears the hijab with gratitude and humility, resent and resist this entire system where women are being stopped and harassed for merely carrying out a religious commitment.”

Zaira, a fresh face who had already made her space in the Bollywood industry had shocked all her fans and lover by announcing her decision to quit Bollywood in 2019.

Now, once again, Zaira Wasim has shared her opinion on the latest issue of Hijab ban on her Instagram. She also criticised the hijab ban and harassment of Muslim women in the name of empowerment.

Zaira writes in her note, “The inherited notion of hijab being a choice is an ill-informed one. It’s often either a construct of convenience or ignorance. Hijab isn’t a choice but an obligation in Islam. Likewise, a woman who wears the hijab is fulfilling an obligation enjoined upon her by the God she loves and has submitted herself to (sic).”

She further goes on to say, “I, as a woman who wears the hijab with gratitude and humility, resent and resist this entire system where women are being stopped and harassed for merely carrying out a religious commitment (sic).”

Hijab ban in Karnataka is a hotly debated issue these days. Moreover, a writ petition was filed in the Karnataka High Court by a Muslim girl student from Udupi seeking a declaration that wearing a hijab is a fundamental right. The matter is currently being heard in the Karnataka High Court.
