Rakhi Sawant Wearing Hijab To Support Muslim Girls? Here Is The Truth

When it comes to entertainment Rakhi Sawant leaves no stones unturned to engage her fans with her weird ways. Known for her comical statements over ongoing issues, the 43-year-old actress was trending on Twitter for a bizarre reason.

Rakhi Wearing Hijab

Rakhi Sawant is well known for entertaining her fans and followers with her weird antics. Other than her social media and onscreen presence, she makes sure that her fans are delighted with all her activities.


Also known as ‘Queen of Controversies’, Rakhi is often spotted on Mumbai streets where she interacts with the photographers and gives content for netizens. From sharing her takes on the controversies of Bollywood to just talking about any ongoing issue in general, Rakhi has always shared her thoughts. This time, her photos and videos where she is seen donning the hijab, are now going viral on the internet.

Netizens have been sharing videos and pictures of Rakhi Sawant, where she is seen wearing a hijab and carrying a backpack. The Twitterati claimed that the actress is expressing her thoughts on the Hijab row that turned aggressive in the country.

One Twitter user wrote, “no way, Rakhi Sawant is 100% Nationalist, a true daughter of India. Never doubt her credentials of being a true Indian at heart. No comparison with mercenary journalists. Her hilarious take on the Hijab drama.”


Another one wrote, “This is a hard-hitting punch on #HijabMeraHaqHai drama.”

Several people claim that this appearance was Rakhi’s way to oppose the Hijab row. However, some even claimed that this was the actor’s way to support Muslim women wearing hijab to educational institutions.

Reality Check

After searching for the truth we found out that none was true. In fact, this is a video from August 2021, months before the hijab protest in the country. Rakhi had then told that she was wearing a hijab that a friend had gifted her. The clip is now being resurfaced online amid the ongoing hijab row in the country and thus, has no connection with the issue.


The hijab issue went viral after the Karnataka primary and secondary education department stated that students of government schools should appear for the examinations with the uniform prescribed by the state government. This order rejected students wearing hijabs to the school.
