The Srinivas group of colleges in Mangalore has sent a note to its female students stating that they cannot attend their classes in Niqab. 

Protests broke out at the college as the Muslim students said they were being denied the right to practice their religion, which is a basic fundamental right as laid down in the Constitution.

The students refused to attend their classes and held a demonstration at the college entrance.

Coastal Digest reported that the Campus Front of India, a Muslim outfit, had organized the protest, which was joined by the parents of the Muslim students.

The protesters also expressed their dissatisfaction over the college management’s decision not to increase the lunch break on Fridays, which the Muslim students demanded in order to perform their Friday prayers.
