K'taka colleges violating religious freedom: PFI on Hijab row

Bengaluru, Jan 17 (UNI) Amid a raging controversy over hijab norms at various Karnataka campuses, islamist organisation the Popular Front of India (PFI) on Monday alleged that the colleges in the state were violating religious freedom of Muslims.
PFI General Secretary Nasir Pasha issued a statement saying the colleges were creating needless controversy over the hijab as one of the colleges denied entry to classrooms if hijab was on.
Several hijab-clad girl students were denied entry into their classroom at a government college in Udupi district that prohibited use of the head scarf inside classrooms. They were told they would be allowed inside only after they took their hijabs off.
