In Azad Jammu and Kashmir, co-educational academic institutions have been directed to make hijab mandatory for female students and teachers. The announcement was made on the instructions of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister, Sardar Tanveer Ilyas.
The new regulation requires female students and teachers to wear hijab while attending co-educational institutions. Non-compliance with this order will result in action taken against the head of the institution, as per the notification.
The move is aimed at promoting Islamic values and modesty among female students and teachers in the region. The hijab is a symbol of modesty and adherence to Islamic beliefs, and is considered an important part of the Islamic dress code.
Overall, the mandatory hijab ruling in co-educational institutions in Azad Jammu and Kashmir is a significant development, and it remains to be seen how it will be implemented and enforced in practice.
