The inclusion of colourful ‘Burqa’ in a recent fashion show, held as part of ‘Fashion Splash 2023’ at the Sriram Group of Colleges in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar, has created a controversy.

The district convenor of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind in Muzaffarnagar, Muqarram Qazmi, has expressed his disapproval, stating that such acts were intended to provoke and hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community.

As many as 13 students from the fashion designing course walked the ramp donning ‘Burqa and Hijab’ in the presence of celebrity judges, Bollywood actress Mandakini and TV actress Radhika Gautam.
