Mysuru: BJP MLC A. H. Vishwanath on Wednesday February 9 said that religion should remain within the four walls of the house and should not come out in the open.
Speaking to mediapersons, he said, “There should be uniformity in schools and colleges and there is no room for hijab.” He said, “Muslims have been living with us ever since India got independence. All these years, there was no hijab row and why has it cropped up all of a sudden?”
Vishwanath added that Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai should act sternly with the offenders and deal with them according to the law. There is no need to close schools and colleges.”
The MLC said, “Students have suffered enough due to the pandemic, and we can’t afford to keep schools and colleges shut for a longer period. It is the job of District In-charge Ministers to rush to respective districts to pacify the warring factions. Educational institutions should remain apolitical but unfortunately, it is not the case.”
Further, he added, “There is a reason behind having uniforms in schools and let us follow the rule. A school is a sacred place where religion has no place to play. Our politicians are playing dirty politics in the name of religion.”
