With HC's permission, we went to the principal and attempted to speak with him. He expressed his helplessness. VC echoed same sentiment "Fathima, a student, expressed her thoughts.

On Thursday, students from Mangalore University College organised a protest on campus against the wearing of hijab in class. The college was chastised by the students for failing to comply with the Karnataka High Court's directive on hijab in educational institutions.

Hijab demonstrations erupted in Karnataka in January and February this year, when some students at the Government Girls PU College in the state's Udupi district said they were prohibited from attending courses because they wore hijab.

Some students said they were denied admission to the college because they wore hijab during the rallies. The hijab protests in Karnataka quickly spread to other states, and the case was taken to the Supreme Court.
