Owaisi's remark on ‘hijab’ comes amid Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2022. He accused the BJP government of not allowing Muslim girls to wear a hijab.

While campaigning in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal district, Owaisi said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi keeps talking about empowering Muslim women and questioned him over the hijab controversy. Referring to hijab row, Owaisi asked, "Is this his Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' campaign pitch."

Saluting the Karnataka women, Owaisi talked about how a burqa-clad woman walked into a saffron crowd and chanted ‘Allah Hu Akbar’. Owaisi said this was the courage every Muslim should have.

“Spoke to Muskan and her family on call. Prayed for her to remain steadfast in her commitment to education while also exercising her freedom of religion and choice. I conveyed that her act of fearlessness has become a source of courage for us all,” tweeted the AIMIM leader from Hyderabad.
