Protest escalates in MGM college between hijab and saffron group

Students in Hijab protesting

Protests against students wearing hijabs spread to yet another college in Karnataka’s Udupi district on Tuesday, hours ahead of a High Court hearing on the matter.

The news: On Tuesday, a protest erupted at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial College in Udupi as students wearing hijabs and another group of students wearing saffron stoles-headgears raised slogans on the college campus.

  • Visuals show Muslim students wearing hijabs, at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial College, shouting slogans of “we want justice” as a large group of male students wearing saffron shawls and headgears confront them.
  • The male students are then seen waving their shawls and shouting slogans.
  • Students wearing saffron began shouting slogans of “Jai Shri Ram” while the college administration looked on.
  • Young women in hijabs alleged that they were pushed out of the gates and protested what they alleged was discrimination by the college.
  • The hijab-saffron dispute is taking hold in many colleges in Karnataka. Some colleges declared a holiday yesterday to avoid communal trouble, while another college allowed students wearing the hijab in separate classrooms.
  • The Karnataka High Court is hearing petitions filed by five women from a government college in Udupi, questioning hijab restrictions.
  • The hijab protests began last month at the Government Girls PU College in Udupi when six students alleged that they had been barred from classes for insisting on wearing the headscarf.
