Women have the freedom to choose what they want to wear, according to Congress politician Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who spoke on Wednesday. 'The right to dress in whichever way a woman wishes is protected by the Indian Constitution,' claimed the Congress general secretary, who added that a woman can pick between a bikini, a ghoonghat, jeans, or a hijab. The remarks come amid the ongoing hijab controversy in Karnataka, which has resulted in the closure of all educational institutions in the state for the past three days. Priyanka made a connection between the issue and the Congress's election slogan for women's empowerment in Uttar Pradesh, 'Ladki hoon lad sakti hoon' (Ladki hoon, Lad sakti hoon).

Whether it is a bikini, a ghoonghat, a pair of jeans or a hijab, it is a woman’s right to decide what she wants to wear.

This right is GUARANTEED by the Indian constitution. Stop harassing women. #ladkihoonladsaktihoon

As a result of the hijab controversy, what began as a protest in a few Karnataka institutions has grown into a massive disaster, with cases of stone-pelting occurring in various locations around the state. It is expected that the high court would begin hearings on the petition of Muslim students who are seeking the right to cover their heads in class.

The Congress has expressed its support for the protesting students, with former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah, Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Shashi Tharoor all expressing their support for the cause of the students.

"By allowing students' hijab to get in the way of their education, we are depriving the daughters of India of their future. Ma Saraswati is a goddess who imparts wisdom to everybody. She doesn't make a distinction "Rahul had earlier tweeted about that.

The viral video of a hijab-clad schoolgirl being harassed by a bunch of males has sparked further debate in the midst of the ongoing debate on social media. Malala Yousafzai, a women's rights activist, responded to the video by saying that it is horrible that girls wearing hijab are being forced to choose between their education and their hijab.

Amit Malviya of the Bharatiya Janata Party tweeted on Wednesday, "Is the freedom to cover one's head with a hijab protected by the Constitution? Article 25 of the Constitution protects religious freedom, although it is subject to constitutional morality, and the state can lawfully restrict religious freedom on the basis of public order and morality. What happens if women in uniformed services begin to demand the right to cover their heads with a hijab?"

"The first word in the Quran is Iqra, which literally translates as "to read." What we are witnessing in Karnataka, on the other hand, is everything from a search for knowledge. Young girls are being urged to choose hijab above education in the name of their religious beliefs. The ghettoization that has been observed so far in minority institutions is beginning to flow over "Malviya shared her thoughts.
