And I see this in action. Every faculty meeting, there is talk of growth achieved and growth being further targeted. Top 100 colleges brag more about student body size than acceptance rates. The latter are used more for internal assessment than marketing.

Why American universities don't market themselves to students based on low acceptance rates is like marketing 101. It makes sense to stress the opposite. Look HOW MANY students get in! You can too! Apply apply, we will reply.

Whereas IIMs, first talk is acceptance rates.

Lets go back to basics. What is the core question?
Might be easier to define what it is NOT.
1. It is not whether Hijab is mandated by Islam. You could have a decades-long debate on that Q and still not get universal agreement. It Does NOT matter.
2. It is not whether a Hijab (or for that matter a #Ghunghat, a turban, a #mangalsutra or whatever) is a regressive practice. Women are repressed in all communities. And you could hardly argue that @IlhanMN or Halimah Yacob suffer repression
#Hijab and repression are NOT linked.
3. The Q is not "Why do some women insist on wearing a #Hijab?". You could, with equal stupidity, ask "Why do some women not wear a Hijab or a Ghunghat?"

Kerala Police has arrested Rahim (60) for the rape, impregnation and murder of a Divyang woman near Manathavady, Wayanad. Police were searching for the accused since the end of November – it is believed that Rahim admitted to his crime during interrogation.
Rini, daughter of Pallikkal Devasya from Moolithodu parish and Mary, died on November 20, 2021. Back then, she was 5 months pregnant. According to police, the lab report showed that Rahim, the unborn child’s father, had poisoned Rini.

This #HijabRow has finally got me to understand what's this faux secularism at its most fundamental level:
- It basically guaranteed same conditions as existing in Pakistan/Islamic State within India for those who supported but could not go to Pakistan.
- 50% of outrage factory on Twitter is courtesy just genius journalists who absolutely lack in common sense, logic or reasoning.
- A private school can run its business as it wants. Is any Muslim student being forced to chant Hanuman Chalisa?
- All the Rana Ayyub types would be feeling so glad inside. I mean, so much to outrage about, so many topics on which to write articles, give interviews, make money!
- Really Acche Din for them 😂
