The issue of hijab in educational institutions in Karnataka is in court. The Karnataka High Court has decided to hear the matter again on Monday. The students have been asked not to wear any kind of religious dress till the order comes. But the question is whether it has any relation directly or indirectly with the UP elections. Questions are bound to arise that what is the relation of the UP elections with the Hijab issue in Karnataka. In general, it would seem that there is no connection whatsoever. But experts say that the matter cannot be taken so lightly.
The first phase of elections in UP has been completed on February 10, no political party is in a position to say anything concretely on the percentage of voting in 58 seats in this phase. In such a situation, the question is whether the UP elections are shifting away from development to the issue of religion and caste.
On this subject, experts say that if you look at the politics of UP, then Muslim society has been doing tactical voting. But in the 2019 elections, there was a slight change in this society. When the women of Muslim society imprisoned in the restrictions increased their confidence in Modi's policies, then those who did the politics of Muslim vote bank started feeling that the vote of the society should not be allowed to be scattered in any way. He sees his future in the Hijab issue of Karnataka. In the rally of Saharanpur, when PM Narendra Modi openly said that when the women of Muslim society started taking Modi's name, the vote merchants got upset and somehow got involved in saving their politics.
Experts say that the Muslim society has traditionally been a supporter of the Congress. But after the weakening Congress, that society felt that BSP and Samajwadi Party could fulfil its expectations. But now AIMIM is also trying to break into that vote bank. Through the Hijab issue, Asaduddin Owaisi feels that he can openly bat but Samajwadi Party and BSP will have to react in a controlled manner. In such a situation, if there is a division in the votes of Muslim society, then BJP can benefit.
