Uttar Pradesh: Meerut school told students to get “Yogi Haircut”


A CBSE school in Meerut has come up with a set of bizarre orders for its 2,800 students, that is students from Class I to XII.

Out of all the rules, there was one such rule of asking them to get hairstyles like of CM Yogi Adityanath. They mentioned of having no beards because the school wasn’t a Madrassa where people offer namaz; blanket prohibition on non-vegetarian food and forced gender segregation to prevent love jihad.

However, the matter came out very seriously on Thursday. Some students were not allowed to enter the Rishabh Academy Co-Educational English Medium School because of not having proper haircuts.

“The students were told to get the Yogi-like-haircuts. Unfortunately, they failed to understand what we actually wanted. Basically, we want very short haircuts, the one kind that Army gives. The students were also told to not keep beards as this isn’t a madrassa or a place where they come to offer namaz,” Ranjeet Jain, the Secretary Management Committee of the school in Meerut said.

The Management also claimed that since the school was run by a Jain trust, non-vegetarian food; even eggs is prohibited in tiffin brought by the students. However, surprise checks were also done in the school whether a student is floating rules or not.

The Management also enforces gender segregation, that is boys and girls will study in separate classrooms. “Basically, this is done for the safety of girls and to prevent from love jihad. Muslim boys took names similar to Hindus tie ‘kalavas’ on their wrists and try to woo at girls. And, this is completely intolerable inside the school premises.  Moreover, these days nobody likes if a boy from one community touches a girl from other community,” mentioned Jain. 

So, there was completely gender segregation among the students in the school.
