Students of Delhi University’s School of Open Learning¬†(SOL), have written to the Delhi Commission For Women (DCW) against the recently released controversial circular by Delhi University’s prominent Miranda House college banning selfies and combing hair in the college corridor.The students have demanded a written apology from the college administration and to stop this discrimination of SOL students.

Arti, Delhi state committee member,KYS told Times of India “Till the issue had not received attention in the media,the identity of students who wanted to enter the college were being forcibly taken away and those who refused were being turned away. Although the Miranda House authorities have withdrawn the concerned notice,they have resorted to collecting the identity cards every time they enter a classroom,often resulting in the waste of time for the students as they have to subsequently search through dozens of identity cards before shifting to the next room.”

Arti also told Times of India “These students are forced to take admission in correspondence courses of SOL,as they are denied admission in regular colleges of DU for failing to achieve the required cut-off marks.These women students come from unprivileged and deprived families,which couldn’t afford to send them to expensive private schools,from where the majority of students in this premier women’s college come.The fact that these students are being subjected to such humiliating treatment by the college administration clearly belies its stated belief in women’s empowerment.The prison-like atmosphere especially put in place on Sundays creates ample fear in women students,to forego their classes at the college in future.”
