After the teacher objected to her shorts, a 19-year-old Indian student was compelled to drape a curtain around her legs to sit an exam.
According to local press sources, Jublee Tamuli traveled 70 kilometers (43 miles) from her home to take the exam in Assam’s Tezpur town with her father.
Her father dashed to the store to buy a pair of slacks, but she said she chose the curtain since the exam was timed.
It was later regarded as the “worst embarrassing event of my life” by her.
According to The Indian Express, the event occurred on Wednesday at an admission test for an agricultural university conducted at Girijananda Chowdhury Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
“They did not check for Covid procedures, masks, or even temperature… but they did check for shorts,” she was quoted as saying in the article.
Ms Tamuli stated that the exam materials did not indicate a clothing code and that she was allowed to enter the institute by security guards but was barred from entering the examination hall by the teacher.
She claimed she asked him to talk with her father, but the teacher remained unmoved.
Many people have resorted to social media to voice their indignation in response to the occurrence.
Many described the teacher’s actions as “outrageous,” “ludicrous,” and “the pinnacle of moral policing.”
Clothing restrictions, particularly for women and girls, are commonly reported from across India, and patriarchs frequently blame Western clothing for the moral decay of youngsters.
Tirath Singh Rawat, the then-chief minister of the northern state of Uttarakhand, was accused of “misogyny” in March after shaming a lady he encountered on a flight for wearing “torn jeans.”
Such viewpoints can potentially have deadly repercussions for women.
In July, a 17-year-old girl was allegedly beaten to death in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh by members of her extended family because they didn’t like her wearing pants.
