Is it okay to wear religious clothes in educational institutions? Or can a girl student be compelled to wear a particular dress? Debate is going on all over the country on all these questions, while on the other hand this matter is also being debated in the Karnataka Court. Let us tell you that the Hijab controversy, which originated from Udupi in Karnataka, is slowly spreading across the country.
In this episode, now this dispute has entered Rajasthan as well. The latest case is of Chaksu of Jaipur. When the girls reached Kasturi Devi College here in the morning, they were stopped from entering the college. The girl students said that we have been coming to college wearing hijab for a long time. We were never stopped, but we were barred from entering the college. When the matter escalated, many local people also gathered outside the college. During this, the people of the particular community demanded the college administration to give admission to the girl students.
On the other hand, the college administration has clarified that after the controversy erupted in Karnataka, girls started coming to the college wearing a burqa. We did not refuse the girl students for a day or two. But when the girls started coming in burqa every day, other girls also started coming to the college without uniforms. In such a situation, the uniform code of the college was being affected. That's why we refused to come wearing burqa.

BJP MLA Madan Dilawar has said about the Chaksu case that students should not be allowed to wear religious clothes in any educational institution. He said that a conspiracy is being hatched to spoil the atmosphere.
