Karnataka: 5 Muslim girls seek TC to join colleges that permit Hijab

Mangaluru, June 20 (KMS): Five Muslim girl students of the university college at Hampankatta in Mangaluru have requested the college administration to issue transfer certificates to enable them to join other colleges.

The college had prohibited wearing of hijab in classrooms which had triggered protest from Muslim students.

Recently, Mangalore University vice chancellor P S Yadapadithaya had announced that the varsity will make special arrangements for Muslim girls to join other colleges, if they are not willing to go by the High Court direction asking students to stick to the dress code prescribed by respective institutions.

College Principal Anasuya Rai said the five students had approached her with the request for TC so that they could join other colleges which permitted hijab.
