Abu Azmi reacts to Ranveer’s photoshoot, asks ‘Why is wearing hijab considered oppressive?’
Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Abu Azmi has reacted to actor Ranveer Singh’s naked photoshoot while drawing parallels between it and the tradition of wearing Hijab. Azmi sought to know if nudity is acceptable in the name of ‘art’ and ‘freedom,’ then why is wearing of hijab by Muslim women under Islamic norms considered ‘oppressive’ and ‘discriminatory.’
Azmi was referring to a controversy that erupted in Karnataka last year when some girls started coming to college wearing Hijab and that prompted their Hindu classmates to protest.

Abu Azmi tweeted in Hindi: “If exhibiting your bare body is called art and freedom, then, why, on the other hand, if a girl wants to cover her body with the hijab according to her culture, it is termed as oppression and religious discrimination.”
नंगे जिस्म की नुमाइश करना आर्ट व आज़ादी कहलाता है तो एक तरफ संस्कृति के मुताबिक लड़की अपनी मर्ज़ी से बदन को हिजाब से ढकना चाहे तो वह उत्पीड़न व धार्मिक भेदभाव कहलाता है।
हमें आखिर कैसा समाज चाहिए?
नंगी तस्वीरें सार्वजनिक करना आज़ादी है तो हिजाब पहनना क्यों नहीं?#RanveerSingh pic.twitter.com/PSyTrI9Y2L
