Ghaziabad: A fresh controversy over hijab is emerging from Ghaziabad, where a college administration has been accused of denying free tablets to hijab-wearing Muslim students. The alleged incident took place on Monday at Ginni Devi College located in Modinagar area of Ghaziabad.
The girls tried to block the road near the campus and allegedly created a ruckus by raising slogans against the college administration. However, the administration claims that the students were not given tablets due to non-compliance with the dress code.
Meanwhile, the college principal denied all the allegations and said that the students were not in uniform, so they were not allowed to enter the college premises.
A BA second year student alleged that the college authorities asked her to remove the hijab when they went to the principal to inquire about the free tablet. The girl also alleged that the college authorities spoke to her in an ‘indecent’ manner, but when the police arrived, she started speaking politely.
The student also said that the college administration will look into the matter after Eid.
Talking to reporters, the principal of the college said that they were distributing tablets to the students and some girl students were not in uniform, so they were not allowed inside the college. He also said that our motive was nothing more than to ensure the students in proper uniform.
