SRINAGAR: The management of Dagger Parivaar School Baramulla, a school for specially-abled kids in Kashmir, has instructed its staff not to wear Hijab during school hours.

The school in North Kashmir that caters specifically to physically challenged children is run by the Army in collaboration with a Pune based NGO.

“Parivaar School is a place to learn and grow emotionally and morally,” the School said in a circular. As the staff of the school, it said, the main purpose is to provide for the fullest possible development of each learner.

“For the same, trust must be established with the students to make them feel welcome, safe and happy. “The staff is hereby  instructed to avoid Hijab during school hours so that students can feel comfortable and are forthcoming to interact with teachers and staff,” it added.


Baramulla Division of Army  has been running Parivaar School since October 2017 for specially-abled children. The Pune based NGO, Indrani Balan Foundation, came forward to support this initiative in February 2021, which led to building new infrastructure for the Parivaar School to facilitate a conducive learning environment for specially-abled children.

Dagger Parivaar School has many activities and therapies for the development of specially-abled children. The school’s curriculum is created keeping in mind the type and degree of disability of the students. The building has been designed taking into account the needs of the students, including specially-abled friendly washrooms.

This school is benefiting more than 150 families of Baramulla district.
