Firozabad: Burqa-clad Muslim women were asked to take off their veil by a cop during CM Yogi Adityanath’s public meeting in Uttar Pradesh Firozabad district.
According to the India Today report, Muslim women who had come to attend the meeting were frisked by the local police and then they were asked to remove her black-coloured veil.
Some women followed what cops and he CM’s security detail told them and removed their burqas. Those who didn’t were asked to leave the venue.
Visuals show the Muslim women searching for their “traditional dress” as soon as the public meeting ended.
The treatment meted out to the Muslim women at Yogi’s public meeting has left the community in doubt over the party’s slogan of ‘sabka saath sabka vikaas’.
Frowned upon the humiliation, Sami Aghai, Chairman of Bhartiya Muslim Vikas Parishad and Secretary Syed Irfan Salim demanded an apology from CM’s office.
“A letter was being written to PM Modi, demanding strict action in this matter and if nothing happens, other means of seeking retribution will be tried,” said Aghai.
