UP school wants students to sport Yogi-like haircut, say no to beards and shun 'love jihad'

The incident came to light on Thursday after few students alleged that they were not allowed to enter the campus of Rishabh Academy Co-Educational English Medium School because they did not have proper haircuts.

Ever since taking over as the chief minister of the country's most populated state, CM Yogi Adityanath has been on a revamp spree.

From shutting down of illegal abattoirs to enforcing anti-romeo squad to keep a check on eve-teasers across the state - Uttar Pradesh seems to be gripped in an array of changes.

However what caught the attention of the people, is a recent unusual diktat from a CBSE affiliated school in Meerut.

According to a report, students of this school were asked to get haircut like CM Yogi Adityanath with strict no on beards and a blanket prohibition on non-vegetarian food and forced gender segregation to prevent love 'jihad'.

Incidentally, the reason cited for not allowing beards was because the school was 'not a madarssa where people offer namaz', said the report.

The incident came to light on Thursday after few students alleged that they were not allowed to enter the campus of Rishabh Academy Co-Educational English Medium School because they did not have proper haircuts.
