In an unexpected turn of events, a Maulana participated in a debate with Ashok Shrivastav on DD News channel, where Islamic Cleric said, “Muslim women should not wear a burqa because I don’t think it’s necessary.” On this, a Journalist said to Maulana, “If you tear up this burqa on our channel right now, I will make you famous.” This is what happened during the debate, said Shrivastav.
The interview was taken by Mrityunjay Chaubey, owner of TheYouth. During the interview, Shrivastav said that Maulana was not in favour of burqa. When asked about the debate, the editor of DD News said, “I think the debate should always be conducted in a good manner, it should not turn into a battleground.”
