Now Kanpur College Directs Girls to Wear Headscarf
The Management of a government-aided Muslim Girls Inter College here has made it mandatory for girl students to wear headscarf and banned use of mobile phones in the college.

"From today onwards, all the students of Class VI to XII would wear headscarf. The order would have to be abide by all the students irrespective of their religious background," college principal Kamar Shaheen said.

"College manager Farhat Hussein directed me that after initial warnings, entry of the student in the college will be prohibited in case of non-compliance of orders," Shaheen said. Hussein could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.

Besides headscarf, the management has also prohibited use of mobile phones by students and teachers in the college campus.

Shalini Prasad, Commissioner, Kanpur division, refused to comment on the issue citing that she was not aware about the orders. "I can comment only after seeing the detailed orders"

What you expect in Mulla Mulayam Rule .After all Muslims are SP supporters hence must please the Vote Banks.

The seeds for 1947 Partition were sown by similar small small moves at the initial stage. Those seeds finally matured into Jinnha's call that Hindus and Muslims are Two Separate Nations .

Gandhi and Congress tried utmost to pacify Muslims to prove Jinnah wrong .Congress always insisted we are one Nation .

After Seven decades we are still there we were in 1935 !

Seems Jinnah was right and Seculars are wrong !!
