The Kerala government has dismissed a plea by a Muslim girl student seeking permission to wear hijab (headscarf) and full sleeve dress in the Student Police Cadet project as per her religious obligation, saying such a waiver in the state police's programme will significantly affect secularism in the state.

The student had moved the court after the faculty of the Student Police Cadets informed her that wearing headscarf and full sleeve dress according to Islamic beliefs would not be allowed.
