Indian school administration prevents female students from entering the classroom with the hijab

Indian media said that a school in the southwestern state of Karnataka prevented Muslim students from entering classes while wearing the hijab.
The school administration allowed the wearing of the hijab or niqab inside the school building, but not inside the classrooms, adding that the aim of the decision was to maintain the uniformity of the uniform in the classroom.
Social media influencers circulated a video clip of a number of female students saying what happened to them because of the school administration’s decision.
The girls stated that the school administration warned them not to speak in the classroom in Arabic or Urdu, which is spoken by a large proportion of Muslims in India.
Last week, the Indian police announced the opening of an investigation into repeated calls to kill Muslims, made by Hindu extremists during a public gathering.
