College in Hyderabad denies entry to burqa-clad students, forced to undress

Hyderabad: A college in Hyderabad restricted entry to burqa-clad students to the college premises on Friday and said they cannot appear for exams until they took it off.

The students of K.V. Ranga Reddy Degree College for Women alleged that the management asked them to remove their burqas, and when they refused they did not allow them to attend exams. The students were permitted to enter the examination hall after 30 minutes when they removed their burqas.

Reacting to the incident, state Home Minister Mohammad Mahmood Ali said: "Some Headmaster or Principal might be doing this but our policy is totally secular. People can wear whatever they want but if you wear European dress, it will not be correct... We should wear good clothes..." He also said that women should remain covered as much as possible and should not wear short dresses. "Nowhere it is written that a burqa cannot be worn. We will take action", he added.
