Kerala Christian school throws out Muslim girl for wearing headscarf
Thursday, 6th May 2010
A Kerala Christian school that threw out a Muslim girl, T.N. Nabela, allegedly for wearing a headscarf (maftha) is facing the ire of student organisations and probes by several government agencies.
Her father Nazir Musaliyar alleged the school authorities could not tolerate a student with headscarf. Nabela had cleared Class IX but was denied promotion to Class X, he alleged.
“The authorities had dissuaded her from wearing the scarf and were waiting for an opportunity to send her away”, said Musaliyar, who is the imam of a local mosque.
