Assefa Bhutto reacts to Punjab’s education policy on Hijab

.... and what will the boys do? What will students of a different religion do? Why does wearing a Hijab impact grades/marks ?! https://twitter.com/dunyanews/status/841628535848620033 
Assefa Bhutto Zardari, sister of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, questioned the logic behind the new education policy of Punjab under which female students wearing Hijab would get five extra marks.
Proposing the new policy, Punjab Higher Education Minister Raza Ali Gillani said that girls who wear Hijab would be given five extra marks in state-run schools and colleges. The decision, he said, was taken to promote Hijab in education institutions.
The minister further said that teachers would be asked to begin their class by reciting a Hadith.
Reacting to the policy, Assefa Bhutto asked what would boys and non-Muslim students do to obtain those extra marks.
She also questioned the relation between wearing a Hijab and grades/marks of a student.
“And what will the boys do? What will students of a different religion do? Why does wearing a Hijab impact grades/marks ?!,” Assefa tweeted.

Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has strongly condemned brutal murder of PPP leader Babar Suhail Butt in Lahore and accused Nawaz government of letting out terror groups against the PPP workers across Punjab.
In a statement issued here, the PPP Chairman said that PPP workers are being targeted under a plan all over Punjab and the latest target-killing of PPP leader Babar Suhail Butt after the previous attack on PPP leader Shaukat Basra and killing of a worker has exposed such plan. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also criticized the Sharif administration for delaying the registration of FIR and asked them to accept the case as being asked by the heir of the Butt family without any further delay.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari expressed sympathies and solidarity with the bereaved family of Shaheed Babar Suhail Butt and prayed to Almighty Allah to rest eternal peace to the departed soul.
He said PPP leadership and workers won’t forget Shaheed Babar Suhail Butt for his commitment, loyalty and sacrifices for the Party and its democratic struggle.
