France considers imposing ban on wearing burqa

Mangalore: K. M. Kaveriappa  Vice-Chancellor of Mangalore University has demanded the SVS Government-aided Degree College in Bantwal to provide a detailed report to him explaining the reasons behind banning Muslim girls from wearing the veil on the campus. The Vice-Chancellor’s action was prompted by a complaint on Tuesday from Aysha Ashmin, a first year B.Com student of the College.


The college authorities prevented her from exercising her religious beliefs, Ashmin has blamed in her complaint.


"He had forwarded the complaint to the college authorities along with his remarks and was awaiting an explanation from them", said Vice Chancellor Kaveriappa.


He said that he needed to verify his own jurisdiction on the matter.

At the same time, he assured Aysha the same day that he would "try his best to get admission in two of the colleges she preferred to study".


"I have told her not to worry about admissions being closed or seats being full. I will try my best to get her admitted to a college", the V-C assured.


Aysha Asmin will be able to pursue her education at a college of her choice, after obtaining No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Sri  Venkatarama Swamy (SVS) College in Bantwal.


 "On her own decision, Aysha did not want to continue in SVS. Aysha had narrowed down to Heera College (where she did her PU) in the outskirts of the city and Balmatta Government College for Women", said VC Kaveriappa.


 Regarding action against college, the V-C said, it would be dealt separately after getting a reply from the college.


Aysha Ashmin, who has scored 78% in her PU, was happy that she would be able to pursue her education. "I want to do chartered accountancy", she says.
