Udupi, Dec 31, 2021: It has been learnt that a few students of the Government Girls’ PU College of Udupi have been made to stadn outside the classroom since three days for wearing Hijab to the college.



As many as six girls studying in first and second PUC have been denied entry to the classroom, it has been alleged. Principal Rudre Gowda  has said the girls would be allowed if they remove Hijab while entering the college.

He said there is no scope for wearing Hijab in the classroom and said only 6 out of the 60 girls from the Muslim community are  attending college wearing Hijabs and therefore were not allowed.
