Row over hijab ends

The students of Sri Ramakunjeshwara Pre University College in Uppinangady who had staged protest against the college authorities for imposing ban on Muslim girls wearing ‘hijab’ inside classes, will end their protest and attend the classes, informed community leader H Mohammad Ali.

Speaking to media persons on Thursday, he said that the residents and Muslim community religious leaders have unanimously come to a decision that the students would temporarily take back the protest and attend the class till the issue is discussed with Pejawar seer. 

“A meeting will be held with Pejawar seer after the end of Chaturmasa Vrutha and we are hopeful that the issue will be solved amicably. We do not believe that protest would solve the problem, instead it would only cause more confusion. As per the guidance of Muslim Central Committee President C K Adam, we requested the College authorities to allow the students to wear ‘hijab’, but the college management in turn asked us to discuss the matter with Pejawar seer. Hence, we have decided to discuss the issue with the seer,” he said. On the other hand, 30 students out of 104 students who had staged protest opposing the ban on ‘hijab’, stepped out from the protest and attended the classes on Wednesday.

A total of 12 girls and 18 boy students agreed to attend the classes on Wednesday, while the college authorities are hopeful of other students too go by the opinion of the Muslim leaders and attend the classes from Friday.
