58 students suspended from Karnataka college after protesting against hijab ban


Amid continuous tensions over the hijab controversy, 58 female students were suspended for entering the college premises wearing hijab in Karnataka’s Shivamogga district. The principal of the institute has reportedly ‘verbally suspended’ for disobeying college rules.

A video that recently surfaced showed the principal suspending all 58 students for violating the norms of the institute. “Deputy SP, DDPI and SDMC had tried to convince you. But still you have not listened to them. You have violated the rules. That’s why we are suspending you all from college for the time being. You can’t enter the premises since you are suspended,” said the principal of the varsity.

Meanwhile, when media representatives contacted Shivamogga DC, he denied the allegations of suspension and said that the students were only “threatened” and have not been officially suspended.

“We have enquired that the principal has only threatened the protesting students only verbally. They entered the college to protest against the ban over hijab. However, no official statement has been issued on their suspension.

Additionally, Minister of state for Youth empowerment and sports, Narayana Gowda has also said that the students have been only threatened and asked to go back home.
