Burqa Ban in KarnatakaStudent suspended from college for wearing headscarf

Bantwal (Dakshin Kannada): In the present generation, where the numbers of students are ever increasing in the schools and colleges, Dress code has been one of the highly debated topics. Many of the interviews with many of the teachers and principals in the past years have made it clear that dress code is not necessary, if the student dress decently.

Now, the question that arises here is - whether wearing a headscarf is a mark of indecency and seeking attention? Aysha Ashmin(18), a student of first year B.Com studying at Sri Venkaramana Swamy Government aided degree college is paying the price of wearing a headscarf while in college.

Ms Ashmin is suspended from the college and is not able to attend her classes since August 7. Although she has secured 78% marks in her 10th and 12th standard examinations, her future seems to be dwindling as she will not be able to admit herself in any other college in the middle of the academic term. All that she has been doing since her suspension is sit in front of the principal's office during the day hoping that she would be allowed to rejoin classes.
