According to the reports, At least 3 Muslim students in India were kicked out of the classroom after they went to college wearing headscarves.
As per details, One of the students said that “When we arrived at the door of the classroom, the teacher said we cannot enter with the hijab,” “She asked us to remove it.”
A government-run women’s college in Udupi district of India’s Karnataka state in the south has forced a group of 6 Muslim students to sit outside the classroom because the college administration alleges they are “defying the rules” since hijab is not part of the uniform.
The girls told that the hijab is “part of their faith” and wearing it is “their right guaranteed under the law”.
The reports said that the college administration has done their best to pressurize them but the girls have maintained a defiant stance.
The hijabi girls since December 31 are being marked absent from their classes even after attending college daily.
Aliya Assadi who is a part of the group said that that “We are not going to budge, no way,”
A photo has gone viral on social media of the students clad in hijab and college dresses sitting on the steps outside their classroom.
Assadi said that “It is because of this photo that our issue got highlighted in the media,”
