An instructor at Aliah University, a Muslim institution in India, has won the right not to come to class in a burqa, Indian Express reported. The student union had demanded that she be barred from teaching without a burqa and she refused to do so, even though other female instructors had complied. But the administration broke the standoff and told her she would be backed up teaching without one.
