10 Times PM Modi's Headgear Made Headlines

A look at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's obsession for different types of headgears

Prime Minister Narendra Modi likes to wear many hats.  No, literally he does. Whenever he visits different places, you would find him donning different kinds of headgears. But, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor is not quite impressed with Modi’s obsession for hats. Tharoor has alleged that PM Modi likes to wear all caps except a skull cap (worn by Muslims).

“I ask you why does our prime minister wear all sorts of outlandish headgear wherever he goes around the country or around the world? Why does he always refuse to wear a Muslim skull cap? You see him in Naga headgears with feathers. You have seen him in various kinds of extraordinary outfits which is a right thing for a prime minister to do. Indira Gandhi has also been photographed wearing various kinds of costumes. But why he still always says no to one,” Tharoor said, at a public event.

“Why does he refuse to wear green, the colour that he says is identified with Muslim appeasement? What kind of talk is it,” he asked.

His comments, obviously, triggered a set of strong reactions and many BJP leaders asked him to apologise for his insensitive statements.

While BJP and Congress indulge the usual war of words, we compiled all the different kinds of headgears that the Prime Minister has happily adorned.
