K’taka BJP MLA Refuses Students to Enter College Campuses in Hijab

Monday’s hijab row in Karnataka took a new twist with Raghupathi Bha, BJP MLA, stating that students protesting and asking permission to wear hijab inside classrooms have been told by Raghupathi Bha to only come to the college campus if they choose to remove the hijab.

“Otherwise, we have clearly told them not to come to the college and spoil the academic environment,” he said. The students have filed a petition to the High Court in protest.

Raghupathi Bhat, speaking to reporters after holding a meeting at the Government Girls Pre-University College in Udupi, stated: “A meeting has been conveyed with the parents, lecturers and School Development and Management Committee regarding the controversy. The students who wanted to wear hijab with uniform were also called… four of them along with their parents participated.”

They were told hijab could not be allowed and they would need to wait until the committee report was submitted.

They can wear hijab on campus but will have to remove it in class.

“Fifty per cent of them agreed, it seems. He added that they had told us that they would get back to us by tomorrow (Tuesday) on the issue.

The order states that the old guidelines must be maintained. Students can attend classes without hijab if they choose.

“We have told them clearly that, otherwise, from tomorrow, you come only if you have decided to come to class without a hijab. You can’t come to the premises of the college and spoil the college academic environment. He stated that police were also informed about the entry of media and other organizations onto the campus.

“There is no room for confusion anymore. “Let them go to college if they follow discipline,” said the Minister.
