Bigg Boss fame Urfi Javed on #HijabRow: If you can wear whatever you want in the parliament, so what’s the big deal in girls wearing hijab to school? – Times of India

Urfi Javed, whose claim to fame is not only Bigg Boss but also her eyebrow raising sartorial choices, spoke at length to paps after her photoshoot today (February 18). She not only talked about her work but also commented on the recent video she put up of BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur with regards to the #HijabRow.

Urfi said, “I just want to say it’s a woman’s right to wear whatever she wants. In fact, itne saalon ki ladai isliye nahi thi ki hum hijab na pehne, itne saalon ki ladyi isliye thi so that women can wear whatever they want. Even if they wear hijab in school, what’s the big deal about it? If you can wear whatever the f**k you want in a parliament or wherever, so what’s the big deal?”

She further clarified, “I am not against anything. That’s what I said. It was just an example. I am not against that (Pragya Thakur wearing what she does), so I am not even against girls wearing hijab in school. Look at me. Do I look like the one who will be against anyone wearing anything?”

Urfi’s statement comes after the BJP MP’s remarks on the Hijab Row at an event.

Pragya Thakur had said, “No need to wear hijab anywhere. People who are not safe in their houses wear hijab. You have a madrasa. If you wear hijab there we have nothing to do… outside, where there is ‘Hindu samaj’, they are not required…” she said at an event organised at a temple in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal.”

In the past few days, there’s been a growing outrage over Muslim students in Karnataka being denied permission to wear hijab in schools. While several celebs have chosen to keep mum on the issue, Urfi and former Bigg Boss winner Gauahar Khan have opposed those stopping girls from wearing what they want.
