Patna's prestigious JD Women's college imposes Rs 250 fine on burqa, withdraws later

After imposing a dress code under which Muslim students would not be allowed to wear burqa inside the college premises, Patna's JD Women's College on Saturday withdrew its directive. Confirming the development, Rekha Mishra, a teacher said, "We have prohibited the use of mobile phones in the college. We have facilitated a particular zone for mobile usage. There is no blanket ban on wearing a burqa in the college premises but students could remove the burqa in the classrooms if they want. Our only motive is that there is a discipline in the college."
