Abdullah describes hijab issue as 'Islamaphobic'

The barring of a Muslim teacher from a Hindu college compound is being described by head of the Islamic Front, Umar Abdullah, as Islamophobic.

He says the decision taken by the management of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha to refuse entry of the hijab-wearing teacher appears to be a deliberate act done out of remorse towards Islam and by extension Muslims.

He further questioned the dress code of teachers attached to the Lakshmi Girls Hindu College and claimed the victim was dressed modestly.
