The poster boy of the hijab row said the controversy was created by “anti-national and anti-social” elements who did not want Muslim girls or even poor Hindu students to be educated.

“The case was fake. There is a difference between the issues created and the issues started. The issue of hijab was created,” said the leader. “If people were affected, then why is it that even today Muslim families send their daughters to college.

Family with deep roots in Jansangh, RSS

Suvarna credits her rise – from an ABVP leader to Bajrang Dal activist to general secretary of the BJP’s National OBC Morcha and now an aspiring legislator – to Modi, former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
