Bizarre! School objects to Muslim students' headscarves in U.P.

In yet another bizarre incident, a school in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki has barred Muslim students from wearing headscarves to class, citing that they don't go with the dress code of the school. Anand Vihar School is a missionary school that objected to one of its Muslim students wearing a headscarf to school. When the student's father asked permission for the same in a written application to the principal, he received back the following reply. The school's principal meanwhile said that the letter did not imply that the students were told to leave school.
