Aadhaar Card: Asking adivasi to take off turban is offending

Gulalia Kanasia President of Adivasi Ekta Parishad in Badwani, Madhya Pradesh says Aadaar card people are playing with the sentiments of Adivasis by asking them to take off their turban for taking pictures for the card. Turban is a sign of pride for adivasis and they take off their turban only at the time of death of their near and dear ones. By asking the adivasi to take off their turbans the Aadhaar card authorities are attacking on their culture. For more Gulaliaji can be reached at 09754101714
