Hijab-clad students denied entry to K'taka college

Dakshina Kannada (Karnataka), May 30 (TIWN) The hijab crisis is yet again showing signs of resurgence in Karnataka as some students were sent back from their college on Monday in Mangaluru city of Dakshina Kannada district.

Twelve hijab-clad students of University College in Mangaluru tried to enter classrooms, but were stopped by the college authorities. They were sent back after refusing to take off their hijabs.  These students were sent back on earlier occasions also after the college reopened following the protests by hundreds of students against the wearing of hijab in classrooms.  After being refused to enter classrooms, the students went to the office of the District Commissioner (DC) of Dakshina Kannada Dr Rajendra K.V to submit a memorandum in this regard. The students demanded that the DC direct the college management to allow them inside classrooms with hijab.
