Thiruvananthapuram, May 8: The principal of the Believer’s Church English Medium School at Gurupuram in Alappuzha district has been suspended pending an inquiry into the incident of a Muslim girl student being issued transfer certificate for wearing a headscarf.

The management of the school placed the principal, Mary Jecinta, on suspension following an agreement reached at a conciliatory meeting called in this regard by the district collector.

As reported, T N Nabala, a student of Class IX, was issued the transfer certificate after the principal said the pupil could not to come to school wearing the headscarf (maftha), a Muslim religious custom. There were widespread protests against the incident.

While District Magistrate Venugopal said the issue was being resolved amicably, Nabala’s father Naseer Musaliar, who is also the Imam of the local madrassa, said he did not want his child to be admitted back. He has also demanded criminal proceedings against the principal.

The Central Board of Secondary Education had also written to the School seeking clarification on reports about the girl’s ouster.

Dear Nassir Musliyar
Assalamu alaikum
As you are the Imam of the local madrasa.You should not be so hard. The government, the local public all have shown the great concern over the issue and are going to take proper action against the principal.
Let us not run away from the scene, let us fight for our right.Win the world by love not by reactions and revenge.
Hope it is near to TAQWA

Its a fundamental right of muslim woman to wear headscarf, burkha and viel and which is mentioned in the holy quran and that will protect woman from evil eyes.

Whatever the steps taken against this principal is appreciable and which will give a big lesson to others.
