France considers imposing ban on wearing burqa

Mangalore: A first year degree student who insisted on wearing a head scarf was banned from entering class in SVS College in Bantwal.

Aysha Asmin who secured 78 per cent in her second PUC examinations had enrolled in the college for the commerce course.

 

Since the start of the college on July 11 she had been wearing a scarf to the college.

 

After the student elections, the new president objected to wearing of the scarf, Aysha Asmin told media persons in Bantwal.

 

On August 6, the principal threatened to ban her entry if she continued wearing the scarf to class. The principal did not budge from his stand though her parents met him on August 7.

 

"There are three other Muslim girls in my class. A girl stopped wearing a scarf after being threatened," she said. Aysha Asmin clarified that she had no intention of tarnishing the image of the college but said that she would fight forces that prevented her entry into class. Anugraha Education Trust Trustee, Ibrahim Chandadi, said he would draw the attention of both the Mangalore University and Women’s Commission to the injustice. When contacted, principal Seetharamaiah said the college has completed 41 years and there is no such rule in the institution. There are other Muslim students who are adhering to the college guidelines, he said.

 

Girls skip classes due to dress code

Uppinangady Government First Grade College toughened its stand and denied entry to Muslim girls wearing a burqa over the uniform.

The dress code was enforced from Monday. When the girls sought permission to wear a burqa, the principal denied them entry into the college premises.

 

Many students were forced to skip classes.

Assigning gay marriage legal status is a sign of total disregard of the family institution and the upholding of instincts of depravity and degenerate activities. It would have been better for such people to embrace celibacy or then to channelize themselves to improving the lot of the world. God knows there is enough sorrow which needs to be addressed. While one can probably argue into infinity about the merits or demerits of such relationships, the fact remains that same sex marriages are a hoax, to say the least. All religions have condemned gay sex and there are strong reasons for it. Critics may plead that to prevent or protest against negative behaviors is an infringement of the individual's right to freedom. But the individual's freedom ends where another individual's freedom begins. The question is: How has the government managed to pass this bill in the face of a conservative society like India's? And secondly, why?
