Earlier this week, St. Aloysius Pre-University College in Mangalore allegedly announced a new set of rules for their female students in an assembly after their classes.

According to the images above, the students are not allowed to tie their hair in high buns or low buns or leave their hair open, celebrate birthdays in classrooms or the canteen, apply thick eyeliner, or sit under trees. If caught, the punishments range from fines of ₹500 to suspension or even expulsion.

If caught, the punishments range from fines of ₹500 to suspension or even expulsion.

While the images were being circulated on WhatsApp, they reached a larger audience when Satshya Anna Tharien, an ex-student of the college, wrote a blog post that has now garnered over 400 shares.

According to the blog post, students claimed that these rules were "communicated to them by teachers during a closed-door meeting only for female students."

In a statement to BuzzFeed, she said that some students were allegedly told that their hair should not be tied in a bun because "it highlights their face".

Hundreds of people, including ex-students, have been expressing their outrage while sharing the blog post.

The post quickly made it to the front page of r/india, and reactions from Twitter have also poured in.

Despite repeated attempts, BuzzFeed was unable to reach the principal and vice principal of the college for comment.
