Ghaziabad: In a new stir to the Hijab controversy, the management of a college has allegedly refused to provide free tablets to Muslim students who wear the Hijab. The alleged incident allegedly took place on Monday in the Ginni Devi College located in Modinagar district of Ghaziabad.

The girls attempted to block the road near campus and created a ruckus by allegedly shouting slogans against the college administration.

However, the administration claimed that the students were not given the tablets because they did not follow the dress code.

Meanwhile, the college principal denied all allegations and said the students were not in uniform and therefore were not allowed to enter the college premises.

A second-year BA student alleged that the college authorities told them to remove their hijab when they went to the principal to inquire about the free tablets. The girl also alleged that the college authorities spoke to them in a “rude” manner, but when the police arrived they started speaking politely.

The student also said the college administration would look into the matter after Eid.

Speaking to reporters, the college principal said that they were distributing tablets to students and some students were not in uniform and therefore were not allowed to enter the college. She also said that our motive was nothing but to make sure the students wore the proper uniform.
