According to sources, Fatima Hasan, a female teacher of Super Montessori School, Thakur Ganj, Lucknow has been prohibited to take her calsses with her hijab.

No one had objected to it until the month of December, when the Principal of the school said that she had to teach without the hijab, as her hijab had brought financial losses to the school.
While talking to the media, Fatima Hasan said that she had been informed by the Principal of the school that the supervisor of a student had queried about her, and that whether she was a teacher of Urdu or Religious studies. She was further informed that due to the hijab many parents have withdrawn the admission of their children from the school.
