SIO President demands apology from BJP leader Tarun Vijay over his rhetoric tweets related to Islamic dress ‘Hijab’

Mr. Tarun Vijay, a BJP leader who were recently criticised over his ‘Black’ remark to the peoples of south India, once again came up with his blunt and insensitive remark which goes against the secular credentials of this Nation.
 
This time the BJP leader disrespects Muslim dress Hijab by tweeting series of insensitive comments over twitter.
Upon his visit to Puducherry University to take part in the commemoration function of Dr. B. R Ambedkar the students of the university strongly protested his presence and demand his return but the situation was controlled when police swung into action and managed to move students from the function and also arrested few of them. Later Tarun describes and tweets the whole situation with his insensitive rant over Hijabi students who were protesting his visit. Mr. Vijay’s tweets are unconstitutional which disrespects the practices of Muslim faith and violates article 15 and 25 of the constitution, i.e freedom of religion.
In this regard SIO Strongly demands unconditional apology from Mr. Tarun Vijay and urge the university administration to prevent the visit of such leaders whose speeches hurt others sentiments and only creates disharmony among students
