According to an ANI report, on Friday (June 16), Muslim girl students at KV Rangareddy Women’s Degree College in Hyderabad came to appear for the examination wearing burqas, but the college administration did not allow them inside. The girl students told that they were forced to take off the burqa and were told that they cannot go to the exam hall wearing a burqa. You have to come inside after taking off the burqa, after the exam is over, you can wear it again outside.

Telangana Home Minister Mahmood Ali courted controversy on Saturday over his suggestions on what women should wear in schools & public in general. Speaking to newsmen, “Problem arises when they wear small & fewer clothes. You can wear whatever you want but don’t dress like Europeans, it can create problems. Women wearing fewer clothes create trouble, people feel relaxed if they (women) wear more clothes,” Telangana Home Minister Mahmood Ali told the newsmen on camera.
