Udupi: Issue of wearing Hijab lingers, girl students study outside classroom


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Jan 13: Because of the dispute over wearing of Hijab by the Muslim girl students, the girl students have been studying outside their classroom.

The news that several girl students were sent out of the class in the government PU college here a few days back because they were wearing Hijabs had hit national level headlines.

The issue is yet to be resolved.

As the students who wear scarves are not allowed to attend the classes, they have continued with their studies outside the classes. The girls feel that they are right and they will get justice soon.

    See the mindset of these camel cultures. when interfaith love affairs happen in college campus and fight erupts on this issue, they will blame some Sanghi Organistaions. when it comes to their Ladies they do not want their ladies faces to be seen. Their Boys can see any ladies have have fun with anyone they choose to. but when it comes to their Girls they have to be protected from preying eyes.

    Just reading the comments it’s clear that a certain community cannot see the sight of minorities. They will try to do anything and everything to aggravate the situation. Particularly common when elections are in sight. Growing up in india I had friends of all religions, caste and creed. Sadly I don’t involve myself outside my community in recent years. Such is the ground reality and hope common sense prevails soon .

    Why religious discrimination in schools? Every one of us follow our religion and wear our religious symbols almost in every places....Nobody should disagree or interfere in religious sentiments which hurts people's harmony....Let's all unite in our community and make it a best place for our future generations....hate is not the solution but compassion can be the tool for prosperous living....thanks my brother and sisters....Jai Hind...Jai Karnataka.

    It’s funny how punjabis fight to have a sword and knife on them all the times along with the pagdi and the whole world supports it as a religious freedom; where as in india hijab which has been a part of Muslim culture for generations is discriminated in Government schools. Government schools are owned by everyone not only the majority population.

    India is a secular country. And everyone has the right to practice their own religion (Article 25 of Indian constitution) and it’s a government college not a private college to impose these rules!! Please bear these in ur mind before you speak up something baseless!! I’m a Muslim and I’m a proud Indian!! You don’t have to tell us where we belong to.. I hope I’m understand this!!!

    Good point Jameela, You are quoting constitution and asserting your right. But, what is the point in asserting your right when you cannot convince the courts. Even Kerala HC in its judgement in Dec 2018 upheld the right of the institutions to define dress code and ban hijab. The judge who gave this judgement is a Muslim. he clearly said individual rights can be superseded by collective rights in such scenarios. Numerous SC judements have settled this matter through the test of balance. Larger good always trumps individual right. Muslim education society which runs 150 plus education institutes banned headscarf in classroom based on this judgement. Leave India alone, even in many Muslim countries Hijab is not mandated by law because there are multiple interpretations on the same. So some reading on this matter would help to get a perspective. But, if you want to stick to your assertion ,please go ahead and fight your battle in courts. But, this drama of studying outside the class is only to gain some misplaced sympathies.

    Mohit Mangalore,It is not fair to say not to study in India.when one is a citizen of India then she Or he has the right to study here.But student has to follow the rules of that school/or college.Not one day appear in religious dress of their own ,or next day sit outside is breaking the rule.such students can be dismissed or go to other institution.Dont make politic in schools.Thats breaking rules of institution ,giving cause to others too go against rules.when scarf was allowed why come in Hijab?and sit outside ?Its like absence from classroom .They can sit at home with Hijab.Same when one comes with Saffron shawl.This is self made politics.or problems.

    College is a place to study and not a place to highlight religious identities. Schools/colleges have uniform for the students to maintain discipline and to promote a feeling of unity among students irrespective of their social or economic background. Entire purpose of the uniform is lost if people want to wear Hijab or Kesari shawl in the educational institutions. So called seculars or religious fundamentalists should understand this and keep their petty religious fights outside the institutions.

    Misguided individuals talk about rights. Rights are human made constructs to ensure peaceful coexistence and reduce human conflicts. When rights become the source of a conflict, like in this case, go to the adjudicating authority (courts) to settle the matter and not do this tamasha at every instance. Every secular educational institution has a right to define the uniform, which is based on construct of equality of people across religion, caste and economic status. Individuals might have a right to wear anything they wish. But, right of the institution prevails over any individual rights. Delhi HC has upheld this right without ambiguity. If some people still feel they have the right to wear hijab , they have to go to SC to challenge the Delhi HC verdict. These people have to prove that wearing hijab is integral part of islam in order to convince the court that religious rights prevail over any other right. In other words, they will have to prove that wearing hijab is an extension of fundamental right to practice religion. So far no one is able to prove this in courts as yet. So the only question is do hijab advocates believe in Indian courts ?

    Politics have entered even premises of educational institutions. No where in the World this type of rules are in practice. This is hijab covering the head and not covering the faces. Why peoples choice of practicing religion based traditions/customs are done away by force. In Rajasthan covering the head of girls/ladies is customary. What about Sikhs having turban on their heads. BJP brings non related issues to make themselves popular among Hindu majority. During my college times (University college) some Konkanas used come in white Dhothi. (not even long pant.

    If Hijab covering only hair and forehead and not the complete face then what is the problem? If it covers completely and difficult to identify the student then the issue has to be addressed and students also understand that they need to identified in the school campus and in the class. School management must issue clear guidelines to each community before their admission to avoid this kind of issues in middle of the academic year

Can anyone ask a Sikh citizen to remove his turban and attend the schools??? It's their choice and no one should question on that. Yes, uniform in schools is a must and every student should follow that rule, but not Hijab.

Why do you differentiate students in class for wearing Hijab??? Why don't the Government open schools for each category of students separately in every Village/Town??? Government STOPS RECRUITING TEACHERS TO SCHOOLS so why don't they stop discriminating on religious grounds???

    Hijab covers only the head, not the face. In India, every community carries symbols of where they belong. Sindoor, no sering, Tilak, sandalwood paste, flowers, anklets, sacred thread, mangalsutra, cross etc. Why so much noise? Has the hatred started overflowing?

    This is nothing but hatred. Some people cannot even tolerate the sight of muslims following their religion. They want the minority to dance to their tunes. When we were in school, followers of ayyappa lord used to come in school uniform with added shawl and without shoes, we never cared neither did the management. When punjabis attend school, nobody cared about their religious headgear. This is nothing but hatred. The aystem is failing its minorities.

    The only solution is parent-teacher-student should sit together and talk like they did in Chikmagalur. When Politicians enter the arena it will become vote bank politics and no solution will be obtained. Apart from this, it is a government college and not a private college. The government should formulate the rules and make them clear. If the government says yes/no scarf then students have a choice to continue in college or leave. Why no cases in Belgaum, Hubli, Raichur, Bangalore, Vijaypur, etc., etc., and only in Udipi.Also, the heading of this article is not correct.Students are not wearing Hijab but only scarf. Then government teachers who wear scarf should also be banned
