Muslim Girls stage Protest Against ABVP on Burkha Issue
Shivamogga: Muslim students staged a protest against atrocities on Muslim girls in front of the DC office here on February 4.
Addressing the protesters Shabana said, “From the past two days ABVP members are opposing Muslim girls from entering the campus wearing the Burkha. The students who come wearing the Burkha have been harassed and physically assaulted. We the Muslim girls do not have protection in the college. We need safety while pursuing our education. Two days ago the Kuvempu University has clarified that there is no dress code for students, but the ABVP are creating problems for the Muslim girl students”, she said.
The protesters allege that youth from outside come to the campus and create problems and some of the lecturers support these goons. They shouted slogans against the ABVP members and demanded their arrest. Students also demanded safety and security for the Muslim girl students in the campus and to take action against those involved in creating violence.
Later a memorandum was submitted to the Deputy commissioner by the students.
