College Students Wear Saffron Scarves Protesting Against Hijab in Classrooms


A section of college students in Karnataka's Koppa district wore saffron scarves protesting against allowing hijab inside classrooms.

Asection of college students in Karnataka's Koppa district wore saffron scarves protesting allegedly against allowing Muslim women to wear hijab inside the classroom.

The students of the government-run college in Balagadi village claimed that if hijab was allowed inside, then saffron scarves could be sported too. 

The same students had earlier asked women not to attend classes wearing hijab.

A similar situation had arisen three years back when the college administration intervened to sort out the issue. 

A meeting has been called this week with parents and teachers to decide on the issue. 

The college had allowed all students to wear whatever they wish to when the hijab row broke out.

" Everything was going smoothly but yesterday some students suddenly appeared in the class wearing scarves. 

They were objecting to the dress code of some students," Ananth Murthy, principal of college was quoted by PTI as saying.

In a similar incident, Muslim girl students of state-run PU College in Karnataka's Udupi were allegedly denied entry into the classroom for wearing hijab.
