The hijab row in Karnataka started as a controversy over the ban on wearing hijab in classrooms but soon took the shape of stone-pelting and lathi-charge incidents at Pre-University Colleges in Karnataka. Amidst the ongoing protests and heated debate over the hijab row in Karnataka’s educational institutions, the left-liberal ecosystem has been using one incident in particular. It has been lavishing praise on a hijab-wearing girl Muskan Khan who shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ to confront a group of boys chanting Jai Shri Ram.
however, the latest revelations have revealed that those praising the burqa-clad girl are in fact supporting terrorism.
Al Qaeda pens a poem to praise Muskan Khan
Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has come out again to mark an end to rumours of his death. But, the terrorist intention this time comes as a bigger shock. He extended his support towards the anti-national elements who have turned the Hijab row to flare communal tensions.
In Zawahiri’s video that is verified by the non-governmental counterterrorism organisation SITE Intelligence, he can be heard praising Muskan Khan, a hijab-clad girl who went viral for confronting a group of boys chanting Jai Shree Ram.
Zawahiri referred to Muskan as his sister saying that he wrote a poem praising her courage. The thumbnail of the video and the poster for the poem was titled ‘The Noblewoman Of India’. The terrorist said that “He came to know about Muskan Khan’s actions through social media. He accused the government of allegedly mistreating Muslims living in the country. He asked Muslims in India to react to the hijab controversy.”
Well, Al-Qaeda’s video vindicates that it is actively following all the developments in India. The video was released by As-Sahab Media, Al-Qaeda’s official media wing.
For those unversed, Zawahiri is the leader of Al-Qaeda ever since Laden died. A reward of $25 million was announced by the US state department if it leads ‘directly to the apprehension or conviction of Ayman Al-Zawahiri’.
Notably, Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind had announced a reward of ₹5 lakh for the said girl student. In a tweet, the religious group said that Bibi Muskan Khan stood up amid protests to protect her constitutional and religious rights.

Notably, Karnataka Education Minister B.C. Nagesh had earlier reported that the SDPI-backed CFI (Campus Front of India) is behind the hijab conflict. He also said that everything will be known after a probe into the matter. The CFI is affiliated with the Popular Front of India (PFI).
Meanwhile, a report by TNM had also revealed that the government pre-university college for girls in Udupi, where the entire controversy started, has been a hub of political activity. In October last year, a few Muslim students of the institutions were pictured with a Campus Front of India banner.
The hijab row is just another propaganda of radical Islamists to promote communal tension in the country. With the recent gesture of the Al Qaeda leader, it has now become evident that it is a terrorist backed propaganda.
