When did the protest start?

The issue of Muslim students wearing hijab in Indian educational institutions started from Government Girls PU College, ODP, Karnataka. Last month, six female students alleged that they were barred from entering the classroom for wearing hijab, which was protested by Muslim female students.

The protest, which started from ODP's government college, later spread to Mandia and Shivamuga, after which the colleges banned the hijab.

When the movement for the right of female students to wear hijab started gaining momentum, the youths wearing saffron colored handkerchiefs also stood up against the Muslim female students.

According to NDTV, several incidents of fighting between youths wearing hijab and saffron handkerchiefs were reported in the state of Karnataka on Wednesday, while the clashes in the cities of Harihara and Dwingar also turned into religious riots.

According to the report, the protesters pelted stones at each other and police fired tear gas to restore order and disperse the protesters.
