Kerala Muslim league leader Rasheed Ali Thankgal has lashed out saying imposing gender-neutral uniform is a ‘fascist’ movement. He was speaking after a meeting of Muslim religious organisations led by the IUML here.
Gender-neutrality is not the way to end discrimination. The move of the Left government is against the majority of the religious people in Kerala, he said. he also urged the state government to step back from the programmes.
Rasheed Ali accused that introducing liberal ideologies without considering the religious people is fascism. The government has been attempting to impose gender-neutral concepts in the colleges, he added.
Muslim League leader and MLA MK Muneer had earlier alleged that the government is encouraging atheism in schools, on account of gender equality.
Education minister V Sivankutty, however, had said that the gender-neutral uniform is not imposed on any school giving hint that the state government with appeasing policy towards Muslims will not go further with its plan.
