Mangaluru: The Government First Grade College in Uppinangady declared a two-day holiday for students on Thursday February 17 due to the hijab controversy.

Ten students arrived at the college wearing hijab, and the college Principal and lecturers asked them to leave, citing the Karnataka High Court interim order. The girls, on the other hand, refused to take off their hijab.

According to sources, a group of students reportedly opposed to the girls’ decision and vowed to wear saffron shawls if they were permitted to attend class wearing hijab. When the college management’s efforts to convince the students failed, they declared a holiday.

Police were called to prevent any untoward incidents.
