Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a BJP official, blasts Sonam Kapoor for comparing the turban to the hijab: ‘Tum apna kalakar ka kaam karo’
The hijab controversy has gotten a lot of attention in the last few days. On February 5, the Karnataka government issued an order requiring a dress code in all schools and institutions, with clothing that “disturbs equality, integrity, and public law and order” being prohibited.
While the debate over whether hijab should be allowed in schools drew widespread attention, actress Sonam Kapoor responded by posting a photo on Instagram of a guy wearing a turban and a woman wearing a hijab, querying why a turban may be worn but a hijab cannot.
Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a politician, has reacted to Sonam’s statement by criticising her for equating hijab with turban. “, he explained “Abhi apne Instagram pe post daali, Sonam Kapoor ne bahot he controversial. Iski option yaha ho sakti hai desh mein, hijab ki nahi hai, dikhaya ki jo dastaar hai. Pehle toh mein Sonam Kapoor yeh kehna chahta hu is tarah ki controversial jaan bujkar do dharmo ko aapas mein bhidaane ka kaam karna galat hai is tarah ki controversial jaan bujkar do dharmo ko aapas mein bhidaane ka kaam karna galat hai. Dastar Sikh ke liye zaroori hai, jo tumne dastar ka comparison kiya. Guru Gobind Singh ji ne jo humein yeh bakshish di hai, har Sikh ke liye yeh mandatory hai or humare shareer ka hissa hai, koi accessory nahi hai, har Sikh ke liye yeh mandatory hai or humare shareer ka hissa hai, koi accessory nahi hai”
(On Instagram, Sonam Kapoor uploaded a contentious post.) She has demonstrated that wearing a turban is an option in the country, although wearing hijab is not. First and first, I want to clarify that the comparison between Turban and Hijab is incorrect, as Turban is a gift to the Sikh community from Guru Gobind Singh ji, and it is a part of our body, not an accessory.)
