In her social media post, Zaira wrote that wearing a hijab isn’t a choice, but an obligation in Islam. She said that she wears the hijab with ‘gratitude’ and humility. “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.”
The Karnataka hijab ban triggered at the beginning of January when six female Muslim students at Government PU College said they were forbidden from entering their college wearing hijab. They began a protest against the college authorities, which turned into a statewide issue across Karnataka. The matter is currently being heard in the Karnataka High Court.
