A college in Bengaluru, India, has asked a Sikh girl to remove her turban in accordance with the order of the court, Hindustan Times reported. However, the 17-year-old Sikh girl who was asked to take off her turban refused to do so.  

The college, while citing Karnataka High Court’s orders, has asked Muslim as well as Sikh students to abide by the rules. As per the the Karnataka High Court’s order, students should “refrain from wearing saffron shawls, scarfs, hijab, religious flags, or the likes within the classroom until further orders” in institutes that have “prescribed the student dress code/uniforms”.

The family of the girl has responded and said that “the order does not mention anything about the Sikh turban”.
