A catering service in Tumkur, Karnataka has sparked controversy by allegedly asking Hindu women employees to wear hijab. The news has come as a shock to many, with reports suggesting that employees are being selected from financially weak families and colonies where they may not have many options.
Reports indicate that there are at least 7-8 catering companies in Tumkur that are asking women to wear hijab. While the parents of the girls who work at the catering service were unaware of the situation, they made it clear that they would not have allowed their daughters to work in a place where they were being forced to wear hijab.
