New Delhi: Supreme Court slams the people who filed a petition against the ban of hijab in Karnataka educational institutions.
A bench chaired by Justice Hemanth Gupta clarified that wearing Hijab cannot be considered as same as wearing Turban.
The Turban, worn by the Sikh community is one of the five essential customs included in their rituals and this has been understood by the Supreme Court, pointed out the Judge.
Meanwhile, the complaint was that the decision to ban Hijabs in Karnataka Educational Institutions is religious blasphemy.
The further hearing of the case is on 12 September.
SC had supported the decision of Karnataka Government over the ban of religious signs inside educational institutions. Some of the Muslim girl students had approached SC filing a complaint against this.
