Entrance denied to Muslim hijab students at exam. Girls from Karnataka, India, who had petitioned the courts for a court order allowing them to wear the Hijab in school, turned away from taking their board exams after requesting to do so in burqas, according to NDTV.
Aliya Assadi and Resham, two students of Vidyodaya PU College in Udupi, attempted for almost 45 minutes to persuade the invigilators and the college’s principal, but were unsuccessful. No exceptions were made to the court judgement that supports a state-wide ban on the Hijab at educational institutions, they were informed by the officials.
The two students, Assadi and Resham, did not cooperate and spotted quietly walking out of the campus, abandoning their test.
“The regulations are being followed. The girls refused to listen to our invigilator’s pleas. They were plainly not going to sit for their tests. They were just interested in creating a problem “Ndtv reported that college Principal Sandeep Kumar had made the comments.
There are 1,076 test centres around the state where rigorous security measures will be in place to ensure pupils adhere to the dress code.
Minister BC Nagesh emphatically rejected a proposal by Muslim female students to allowed to take examinations in hijab.
“As of right now, you still have an opportunity to save us from losing our future. Allowing us to take tests while wearing the hijab is up to you. Please give this a thought. That country’s future depends on all of us, “tweets from her.
