A couple of years back when the principal of the S V S college in Buntwal had banned the wearing of a head scarf it had become a major issue. Today the historic St. Aloysious College in Mangalore is in the news for the same reason after it mentioned in its prospectus that it would not permit wearing of a burqa in examination halls and also in the class room.
The rule will be in effect from next year onwards, the college which is an autonomous institution has informed.
There has been a mixed reaction to this decision by the college. Muslim organisations are up in arms against the college and have said that it is a demeaning rule which hurts their sentiments. The college has however remained firm and said that the rule will continue.
Although the Muslim organisations are hell bent on making a big issue out of this and continue protesting the college administration has said that this is in academic interest. A source in the college informed that the rule bars wearing of a burqa in the class room and the examination hall. We have no objection to anyone wearing it on campus. Moreover we have also not banned the wearing of a head scarf.
The college justifies this rule by stating that the rule came into force after a student in a burqa was caught cheating during the examination. Moreover it is difficult to conduct a class when someone is wearing a burqa, the source also added. There is a uniformity
This is the third time in three years that the burqa code has become an issue in the Mangalore region. Two years back a girl from the SVS college had protested after she was barred from wearing a head scarf to the college. However later the issue was resolved and she was permitted to wear the head scarf.
Last year a similar issue had taken place in Moodabidri Jain college when a girl stopped going to college after she was prevented from wearing a head scarf.
