Teachers and students of the Shanmuga Hindu Ladies College (National School), Trincomalee protested against a Muslim teacher who insisted on wearing abaya to the school.
Demonstrators also demanded to take legal action against the husbands and hooligans who threatened to enter their school and enter their school.
Several posters and placards were used with one poster ironically read ‘Hindu schools are for Hindus. Let’s not entertain racism here!’
The school’s internal rules apparently prohibit abaya wearing. News reports say that the husband of the female Muslim teacher entered the school without authorisation and ‘threatened’ the principal.
