Udupi, January 1: “Religious discrimination is followed at the government college PU by denying admission to students wearing the hijab,” alleged Masood Munna, member of the state committee of the Campus Front of India (CFI) in Karnataka.
Speaking at a press conference held at the Durga International Hotel here on Saturday January 1, he said the CFI Udupi district committee strongly condemns religious discrimination at the college. “CFI will participate in demonstrations in front of the college if it denies permission for students to wear the hijab,” he said.
“A request in this direction was submitted to the deputy commissioner and to the DDPI which had ensured to solve the problem. But the student was expelled from the class for the same reason. The college principal should be suspended and action should be taken against professors who do not mark the student’s attendance. We caution against violent protests if the college does not stop the practice and do justice to the student, ”he said.
Student Almas said they would not stop wearing the hijab at any cost. “The college administration should allow us to wear the hijab,” she said.
District President Aseel Akram, India District Vice President Udupi Zam Zam’s campus, students Alia Asadi, Almas, Ayisha and their parents attended the press conference.
