For Udupi College Authorities, Is Freedom of Religion Out of Syllabus?

(Cartoon: Aroop Mishra/The Quint)

Three weeks after the Udupi college barred their entry for wearing a hijab, the six students are still fighting to enter their classrooms and attend their lessons.

"We either give up and enter the classroom, or continue fighting for our fundamental rights. We choose the latter. We aren't giving up."
Aliya Assadi, one of the six debarred students
