Muslim girls with head scarvesKerala, October 16, 2012: Nirmala School of Aluva, which came under scanner for prohibiting head scarf to Muslim students despite an order from the district ADM, has been found rejecting applications from Muslim students for enrolment to the next academic year. The school started admissions to the next academic year, a month back and the interviews are underway.

However, many parents from the Muslim community have alleged that even studious and meritorious candidates fulfilling all criteria have been denied admissions. A parent, who tried to contact school administration to know the reason for the rejection of his ward candidature, was told bluntly: “You people can enrol your kids in your own schools.”

Civil rights groups and Muslim organisations in the state are already protesting against the prohibition of wearing head scarves to Muslim female students despite an order from the district administration. The school’s decision to keep away Muslim students from the next academic year onwards has further sullied the institution’s name in controversies.

When TCN tried to contact the school administration, the Principal was out of bound and others were unwilling to talk. Meanwhile, many parents are planning to take legal action against the school.
