Muslim Students Federation threatened female students for not wearing headscarf in Kerala Law College

Five Student Federation of India (SFI) activists were injured on Friday following a clash with other student groups at the Kerala Law Academy Law College in Thiruvananthapuram. This after a female student was allegedly harassed for not wearing a headscarf.
“An activist of Muslim Students Federation (MSF) threatened a female student two days ago for not wearing a headscarf. The MSF and Kerala Students Union (KSU) activists have been acting like the moral police and were ragging female students, which led to tension on campus,” said Hari Chandan, former SFI college unit secretary and a final year LLB student.  A first year LLB female student also told TNM that the row over the headscarf was what triggered the clash between SFI and other students’ unions.  “An MSF activist asked the student her name and demanded that she wear a headscarf, saying it’s mandatory for Muslim girls. While there was a minor tiff between SFI and KSU activists on Thursday, clashes took place between the groups on Friday,” she said.

However, police say they are yet to determine what sparked off the clashes. “Tension prevailed in the campus and this led to the clash. But we don’t know the exact provocation. The activists of ABVP, KSU, MSF and AISF were involved in the clash,” Sub Inspector Peroorkada Prem Kumar said. He added that the injuries were not serious.

Other student organisations allege that the SFI has been hostile towards them following their protests in January demanding the removal of Principal Lekshmy Nair. During the demonstrations, the student protesters had then alleged that SFI was colluding with the management, which was backing Lekshmy Nair.   SFI activists, however, allege that other student organisations on campus tend to unite against the Left-wing group.
