Facing protests by a section of students for not allowing them to wear Hijab (head scarf) in a classroom, the St. Agnes college management on Friday said that students are bound to follow the dress code prescribed.
A group of students and Campus Front of India had protested outside the college on June 25 against the ‘denial of right’ to wear head scarfs.
Speaking to reporters, college principal Sr Jaswina denied reports that some students had been suspended after the protest.
She said all the students who took part in the protest over wearing of the hijab had been attending college regularly since then.
They had been asked to give an explanation in writing in the presence of their parents within three days, she added.
She said admissions of the students were made only on the basis of these regulations and other requirements to ensure discipline and “friendly atmosphere” in the campus.
