RSS supported Muskan Khan, condemned act of saffron shawl wearing students

News Desk: The Muslim wing of the RSS, Muslim Rashtriya Manch extended support to Bibi Muskan Khan, the girl who protested against saffron-shawl wearing students when chanted ‘Jai Sree Ram’ for wearing hijab.

Condemning the act of students wearing saffron shawls, Muslim Rashtriya Manch’s Avadh prant sanchalak Anil Singh said “She is a daughter and sister of our community. We stand by her in her hour of crisis. The behaviour of boys wearing saffron shawls and chanting Jai Shri Ram was unacceptable. They defamed our Hindu culture”

“Hijab or purdah is also part of Indian culture and Hindu women too sport purdah as per choice. And the same condition applies to Bibi Muskan” he added.

He further added “Our sarsangh chalak has said Muslims are our brothers and the DNA of both communities are the same”

The Muslim Rashtriya Manch also in its statement said “Hindu culture teaches respect of women and those who chanted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and tried to terrorise the girl were wrong”.

It also said “The girl has a constitutional freedom to wear a hijab. If she had violated the campus dress code, then the institution has the right to act against her”

Earlier on Tuesday, a group of students wearing saffron shawls harassed Muskan after she entered college with a burka or a hijab. They chanted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and in return Muskan chanted ‘Allah Hu Akbar’ too. A video of this incident went viral on social media.
