Udupi: According to sources, students from Udupi’s Government Women’s PU College have accused the Principal of refusing to let them enter the premises wearing the hijab.

Six first and second-year PU students claimed that they had been forced to stand outside the classroom for the last three days as they wore hijab. The students are concerned that they will be unable to attend classes and have been urging the principal to allow them to do so.

The Campus Front of India and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) has condemned the incident and requested authorities to allow the student to enter the classroom wearing the hijab.

However, college Principal Rudre Gowda defended the move, claiming that the hijab ban was intended to ensure classroom uniformity.

He also said that the female students can wear burqas in the educational institution’s premises, but not inside the classrooms.

According to sources, a meeting was held with their family members to resolve the issue.
