“Some Headmaster or Principal might be doing this but our policy is totally secular. People can wear whatever they want, but if you wear European dress, it will not be correct…We should wear good clothes. Auratein khaas taur se, kam kapde pehn’ne se pareshaani hoti hai, zyada kapde pehn’ne se logon ko sukun hota hai. Nowhere it is written that a burqa can’t be worn. We will take action,” says Telangana Home Minister Mahmood Ali
