The All Pakistan Private Schools Federation (APPSF) announced on Friday that Muskan Khan, a brave daughter who told the truth in front of Hindu fundamentalists in India, will receive a complete scholarship for higher education in any country in the world, including Pakistan.
Kashif Mirza, the APPSF’s general secretary, expected that Muskan would become a voice for defenseless Muslim women seeking higher education in India.
The Muslim girl was harassed by Hindu extremists on her way to college, according to Kashif Mirza, which was disgusting, and the APPSF condemned it.
“APPSF urged the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and international human rights organizations to pressurize the Indian government to rectify this abuse,” Kashif Mirza said, adding that brave daughter Muskan was fearless and shouted Allah ho Akbar in the face of Indian extremists.
Muskan Khan has brought the brutal treatment of Muslims in India to the attention of Muslims all over the world and the worldwide community, he continued.
Keeping Muslim girls out of school is a violation of their basic constitutional right, Kashif said, citing India’s Modi government as a damaging and terrifying face for Muslims.
“The ban on hijab is a violation of Articles 14, 15, 19 and 25 (1) of the Indian Constitution.”
“Instead of ‘Save the daughter and educate the daughter,’ the BJP and Congress are effectively promoting the slogan ‘Remove the Muslim daughter.”
“Hijab is a Quranic command, Muslim daughters’ identity and obligation, and they will continue to wear hijab.”
Furthermore, he stated that a Muslim daughter’s freedom to wear a scarf constituted a fundamental constitutional right. “They are also protected by the Indian Constitution.”
He went on to say that the hijab restriction was also a violation of Indian Supreme Court and Kerala High Court rulings.
“Hijab is not even prohibited by FIFA, the International Basketball Federation, or the Nobel Peace Prize,” Kashif remarked.
“In 192 nations around the world, there are no limitations on wearing the hijab.”
Kashif added that 21.9 percent of Muslim girls were out of school at the present, citing data from the India National Statistics Office, which should be a cause for concern for the Indian government.
