Six Muslim girls wearing hijab have been barred from entering their classroom in an Indian college, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Sunday.

They were forced out of the class because they were putting on hijab in a Karnataka college, the local media reported, adding that the students stood firm and started studying outside the classroom. 

The girls have been out of the classroom for a couple of weeks, although their parents approached the local administration but to no avail. It is forbidden to wear hijab, speak Arabic and Urdu, the Indian media reported.

Photos of the students sitting outside of their classrooms in a college in Udupi have gone viral. A student body staged protests to condemn the policy.

Back-to-back anti-Muslim incidents surfaced in India during the rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi exposing the extremism and hatemongering of the Modi government.
