In a statement, HJV said that a few communal organizations have instigated the students of a certain religion to wear Hijab to disturb communal harmony.

If the government allows the students to wear Hijab in the classrooms then Hindu students will also wear saffron shawls, it added.

A government college in Udupi district has banned students from wearing hijab inside the classroom. Seven Muslim students, who demanded that they be allowed to attend classes while wearing a hijab, have been denied entry.
