Nun with headgear not allowed to write exam

Thiruvananthapuram, July 25 (IANS) A nun who refused to remove her headgear was on Saturday not allowed to write the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) here.

Sister Seba came to a school to write the examination in her usual dress.

“I was told I can’t sit for the exam in this dress,” Seba told the media.

“I told the officials that I can remove my veil and will put it on after they check my identity.

“But they said that’s not possible, and I can write the exam only if I take off my head gear. I then decided to return,” Seba said.

Bovas Mathew, official spokesperson of the Syro Malankara Church to which Seba belongs, described the incident as “really unfortunate”.

“It’s really unfortunate that the central government is not doing anything to resolve this issue,” Mathew told IANS.

“The constitution guarantees a person to hold on to his beliefs and customs. The judiciary should not have gone to this extent.”
