Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University said it issued the edict this week to more than three dozen niqab-wearing students, who will be booted from school if they refuse.

Arab export and some associate it with radical Islam, which the country has wrestled with for years. Yudian Wahyudi told a press briefing this week. The school, based in Indonesia’s cultural capital Yogyakarta, has some 10,000 students.
