Protests continue against hijab bans in India – BBC News

As protests spread across India after rows over the wearing of hijabs in schools Muskaan Khan has inadvertently become the face of resistance for young Indian Muslim women amid an escalating row over hijabs, or headscarves.

In a video that has gone viral, the 19-year-old student can be seen entering her college as a mob of men approach her wearing saffron shawls – a colour associated with Hinduism and Hindu nationalist groups

Protests started when a pre-university college in Karnataka’s Udupi district implemented a ban on headscarves – the college said students could wear the hijab on campus but not in the classroom. The protests have since spread across the country.
