How can one forget the much-talked-about Hijab protests in India? The protests started in the southern state of Karnataka and spread to many other states. The issue even reached the Karnataka High Court and the country's top court Supreme Court as well. The protests started after Hijab-clad students were not allowed to enter educational institutions.



While the Muslim students and supporters said that they have been wearing Hijab but they were not stopped earlier. However, the authorities said that there is a dress code that needs to be followed by the students no matter what their beliefs are.

Now a similar issue erupted in the land of gods Uttar Pradesh after a few students were denied permission to enter the college. The reason for this is they wore a burqa. The administration said the students cannot come like this and there is a uniform code and the students should follow that.

Going into details, this reportedly happened at the Hindu College in Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh. Seeing students in a burqa, the College authorities stopped them and asked them to follow the Uniform Code. This led to a tense situation at the campus.

A protest-like situation rocked the campus when the College administration said that they will not allow the students. Talking about the rules the professors reportedly said burqa cannot be allowed inside the campuses. The protestors said that the burqa should be allowed for Muslim students.

Muslim students wearing burqas sat for a protest demanding that they should be allowed to enter the campus in burqas and no problems should be caused to them. The protestors said that they will move the Police in this regard.

The issue caught everyone's attention as it was reported from the politically sensitive region Uttar Pradesh. People are drawing comparisons between the recent issue and the previous one that erupted in Karnataka.

Many Educational institutions have a strict uniform code and students are expected to follow them. But controversies pop up regularly when students prefer wearing dress going by their Religious identity. Earlier the High Court of Karnataka said that wearing Hijab is not mandatory for Islam.
