In our locality, Kashmir, parents send their daughters to foreign countries in colleges owned by hindus to get degrees in medicine and engineering. My question is that is there any allowance for this in the Shari’ah?
There is usually no system put in place for پردہ (i.e. separation of the male and female students) in colleges and universities, moreover sending ones daughter to a foreign country in a hindu dominated area for secular education is not permissible in any way. One should suffice with whatever education is given under a system that maintains proper پردہ, and not put his honor and religion at risk by exceeding this.
And Allah knows best.
