In India, students have began protesting and boycotting, particularly at Karnataka college, because of a controversial ban on the wearing of headscarves. Officials say they are worried that the wearing of headscarves could be disruptive to the learning environment, make other students uncomfortable, and that there was no discrimination going on. Similar bans are of course in place in other countries, such as Turkey and France. John Iadarola and Lisa Ferguson discuss on TYT University.

What do you think about the ban on wearing hijab in university classrooms in India and other countries? Is this an act of discrimination largely aimed at Muslim students? Or do school administrators have a point in that it could offend or make other students uncomfortable? What do you think the student protesters should do?
