Sanjida Qadar, an instructor at LJD Law College in Kolkata, announced her resignation after being instructed not to attend classes while donning a hijab.

Qadar had been wearing the headscarf since Ramzan, but the issue intensified recently. In a communication on June 10, the college mentioned she could return under specific dress code conditions. However, in a subsequent email, Qadar decided against rejoining.

She indicated that continuing at the institution would not be comfortable for her. The college administration, acknowledging her choice, extended their best wishes for her future endeavors.
