Hijab Row moves upwards to Uttar Pradesh

With Udupi starting the wave, now Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh is asking colleges to ban hijabs for students. A group of youngsters have asked the college authorities to ban the head covering for Muslim girl students.

The news: Educational institutes in Karnataka had been closed since last week, as the new uniform policy barred students from wearing headscarves in classrooms which led to several protests by Muslim students as well as Hindu students.

  • The same ban, of hijab, is being noticed in Lucknow, as a few youngsters have asked the college authorities to ban the head clothing.
  • Muslims are calling this ban as just another attempt to marginalize a community that accounts for roughly 13 per cent.

What’s going on: More than two dozen young men in Aligarh, handed over a memorandum to the officials of Dharma Samaj College. The memo asked for a complete ban on wearing a hijab, while the students are on the college premises.

  • The young men wore an attire of saffron shawls around their necks, which clearly showed they are from the Hindutva group.
  • Religious clothing has currently been banned in classrooms, but is allowed on campus.

What are they saying: Bharadwaj who is one of the senior officials of the college told the press, “Two years ago the same issue was raised and it has been raised again. We do not allow any type of religious uniform and we have a civil code of uniform for everyone. There is a changing room for girls and they can change their dress there before attending class.” He further said, “We are investigating the matter.”
