He stated, "What do you have to do with what our Muslim women wear? If you don't want to wear anything, please go ahead. SC stated in a judgment that the right to choose is a Fundamental Right. People have the choice to wear what they want. So when Asaduddin Owaisi can go into the Parliament with beard and cap, why can't Muslim girls go to school wearing hijab or niqaab?"
