Ha ha! Clearly some pious muslimahs have been using the burkah to cheat in exams. Otherwise who would care?
Muslim girls should discard the burqa themselves so that such bans do not become necessary. We have for too long been hiding behind the platitude: "It is woman's choice". It is time to take a positive stand and say that the burqa is derogatory and is an anomaly.
Will Fathers, Mothers, Sisters and Borthers at St. Aloysius come stop coming to college in Gown/Vest or what ever that passes as Christian attire. This is purely a racist idea set up by the Konkani Catholics.
The purpose of imposing a dress code in an institution is to maintain a uniformity and there is noi scope for discrimination.If the Muslim men are so keen to impose thier own fanatic dictates on a secular institution like St.Aloysius college then its good on thier part to insist thier women folk join Madrassas or some instirutions opened specially for the privileged.
More than protecting the religious rights its a sheer act of trying to gain hold over the women in the community through thier fanatic and fundamentalist approch.
