Hindus are critical of reported nose piercing banning policy of Grenadjar School (Grenadjarskolan) in Orebro in central Sweden, saying it may be unfair to female students of India descent.
 

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that nose piercing and nose ornaments had been a tradition of women of India for centuries and the Hindu goddesses had been depicted wearing nose ornaments.
 

 

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, argued that it was denying the right to students of India background to express their religio-cultural identity. Dress code should be accordingly amended to show sensitivity to religio-cultural beliefs of students of India descent.
 

 

Rajan Zed further said that they respected the school dress code policy as long as it did not violate the traditions and beliefs of the pupils. Noses of girls in India were usually pierced around puberty and it reportedly found mention in ancient Ayurvedic text. Old architecture and paintings of India depicted the presence of tradition of nose ornaments and Indian poets had been singing their praise, Zed added.
 

 

According to reports, a 13-year-old girl with a pierced nose was denied enrollment in this Grenadjarskolan and was told to leave her nose pearl at home. Her mother has filed a complaint with authorities. Grenadjarskolan in Orebro is reportedly a publicly-funded and privately-managed free school with Yvonne Wirhall as Principal.
 

 

Orebro in Narke province of Sweden, chartered in 1404, is known for its water tower Svampen, Gustavsvik water park, grind band Nasum and Castle. Prominent people associated with it include Nobel laureate Manne Siegbahn, actress Mary Stavin, religious reformator Olaus Petri, and author Edita Morris. Residents of Orebro, also known as Town of Cycling, include immigrants from about 150 countries. Lars O Molin is the Chairman of its City Council.
