Hijab Controversy : The Karnataka High Court has dismissed petitions challenging the ban on hijab in educational institutions. The court dismissed the petitions saying that hijab is not a mandatory part of religion. The court has termed the order of the Karnataka government as constitutional.

The Karnataka High Court, while delivering its judgment in the Hijab controversy, observed that the prescription of school uniform is a reasonable restriction, to which a student cannot object. Along with this, the court also observed that no case is made out to invalidate the order of the state government of February 5. The court said that we are of the opinion that wearing the hijab of Muslim women is not a part of the compulsory religious practice in Islam religion.

Let us tell you that a group of girl students of a pre-university college in Udupi had demanded to attend class wearing hijab. After this some Hindu students had reached the college wearing saffron gamcha. Gradually this matter spread to many districts of Karnataka. While the state government stuck to the rules related to dress.

At the same time, the state government has decided to keep schools and colleges closed in sensitive areas. Section 144 has been imposed in Bengaluru till March 21. Schools and colleges will also remain closed.
