KASARGOD: All India Lawyers Union Kerala Unit has said a person has full freedom to wear any dress material acceptable to the society and anyone enforcing dress code on caste and religious consideration should be isolated.

Speaking to reporters here yesterday, E K Narayanan, State Secretary of the Union, expressed concern over the murder threat reportedly served by an anonymous organisation on Raihana R Khazi, an aeronautical engineering graduate from Kasargod, recently for refusing to wear purdah.

Such incidents amount to naked violation of denying civic and democratic rights of a citizen, he said, adding the Lawyers Union would extend free legal assistance to any person facing similar situations in Kerala.

Earlier, Kerala High court had granted police protection to the 22-year-old Raihana for three weeks.

In her petition, Raihana had stated that after returning to Kerala from Chennai on completion of her course in August last, some neighbours and her distant relative insisted that she should wear Purdah, veil and head scarf.She resisted their interference on her religious freedom.
