Kerala's Malappuram district has created a much bigger buzz after a private educational institute namely Al Farooque English medium school in Pandikkad, introduced two different uniforms for students in terms of their intelligence quotient and academic skills.

As per the new dress code, the students who are sharp in studies will wear white shirts and tops while the weak or the underperforming students will wear red check shirts and tops.

The parents were told by the Al Farooque English Medium School that the uniform would trigger healthy competition and would help improve the academic performance of the average students. However, there was no mention of the psychological pain it caused to students According to a New Indian Express report, 32 of its 800 students were asked to wear different colored uniforms to school while the rest followed regular uniform. The survey revealed that the students feel discriminated owing to the introduction of the new system.

A section of them approached the district childline authorities with written complaints following which a team visited the school which is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education. The Childline officials have also found the process highly discriminatory which will raise mental agony of the students. After conducting a survey among students, Child Line asked the school to withdraw its new rule.
