Recently, Sonam Kapoor expressed her views on the Karnataka Hijab row. And her views led to massive trolling. Sonam Kapoor compared a turban with a Hijab and her comment became a topic of discussion.
Taking to social media, she asked if a turban can be a choice then why not a hijab.
Sonam Kapoor’s comment came after Kangana Ranaut’s controversial statement wherein she said that women should show courage by not wearing a burqa in Afghanistan. Ranaut was lashed out at by Shabana Azmi.
Sonam Kapoor took to her Instagram and shared a photo showing a man in a turban and a woman in a hijab. “This can be a choice” is written under the photo of a man wearing turban while the woman in hijab has text that reads, “But this can’t?”.
While some people agreed with Sonam, others lashed out at her for the comparison. Here’s what people on Twitter have to say.
Dastar or “Dast-e-Yar” means“the hand of God”. It is not a choice but a blessing of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji & an integral part of Sikhs’ identity. Comparing Dastar & Hijab are unjustified & unwanted in this context @sonamakapoorpic.twitter.com/CZL83TVY3W
Sonam Kapoor @sonamakapoor I am damn sure you know nothing about Turban and hence you arecomparing Orange with Apples. Turban is not a piece of cloth that covers our head, it’s our pride, our honour, our uniform, part of our body. We made innumerable sacrifices for this turban. https://t.co/9TLu9QPG7L
