Bengaluru: The SC will deliver the judgment on wearing hijab in educational institutions today. The Karnataka High Court had accepted the government’s order on the issue and the awaiting judgment is on a complaint filed against the government’s order.
A bench comprising Justices Sudhanshu Dhoolia and Hemanth Gupta adjourned the case to 22 September after listening to a 10 day hearing. The petitioners said that banning hijab in educational institutions will make their education in trouble. But the state said that the order of the state is to ensure religious neutrality.
The Karnataka SC said that those who support wearing hijab in educational institutions are just to secure the personal interest of the few.
The state said that the ban on Hijab was taken up by the PFI associations. They also said that anti-hijab campaigns have even started in the Islamic country of Iran.
