South Carolina University students protest on campus September 20, 2021 September 20, 2021 admin

SCOTTISH university students are demanding a change to the curriculum after the university announced plans to ban the wearing of full-face veils at its campuses.

The move has outraged students at University of South Carolina (USC) who say it violates their civil liberties.

In a statement to the media, the school said the university’s goal was to create a more diverse student body.

“It is the purpose of our university to provide an environment that is inclusive, safe, and conducive to learning,” the statement read.

“We understand that some students may feel uncomfortable or uncomfortable with the idea of wearing a full-body Islamic veil at our campus.

We understand that this may be an issue that is difficult for some people, and we want to help students navigate this difficult transition.”

The university’s statement came after an email was circulated on campus advising students to wear their headscarves and head coverings at home, while not wearing them at class.

“I’m a Muslim and I’m a student and I am not comfortable wearing my face covering at my university,” student Adele Cote told the South Carolina State University student newspaper.

“If I feel uncomfortable, I’m going to leave, but if I’m not comfortable with my face being covered, I don’t feel comfortable wearing it,” she said.

Students have protested in the past at the school, and on Friday night students staged a sit-in at the campus library and marched in front of the building.

Students have also held protest rallies at the college’s headquarters in Columbia, SC, and at the university in nearby Columbia, South Carolina.

The college has faced backlash from students in the days after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, with one student saying they wanted to “kill white people” because of their presence at the White House.

The university said the new policy will be rolled out to all campuses.
