Amidst the ongoing hijab controversy in Karnataka, the Islamist outfit Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) has taken out a protest march in support of the attire in Karachi's Pakistan.
Nearly hundreds of Pakistani women, who are related with Jamaat-e-Islami, rallied in support of the ‘right to wear hijab in schools’ of India.
They also held placards which read, “Hijab is our right”, “Modi Stop Terrorism” and “Why is the world silent on this extremism?”
This news was tweeted by a Muslim news site, 5 Pillars.
"We salute the courage and bravery of our Muslim daughter Muskan Khan. She chanted the slogan of ‘Allahu Akbar’. She declared that Muslims would not allow our values to be infringed under any circumstances,” remarked a JeI protestor.
The protesters also burnt the effigy of PM Narendra Modi in Lahore city and demanded that Muslim girls should be allowed to wear hijab to schools.
