The Karnataka High Court will deliver its verdict on Tuesday regarding the Karnataka hijab controversy. Hijab controversy has created a big controversy across the country. A few things have been banned in Bengaluru ahead of the verdict on the hijab controversy. Bengaluru Police Commissioner Kamal Pant said that for a week from March 15 to March 21, all forms of gathering, movement, protest or function in public places have been banned in Bengaluru.
Ahead of the Karnataka High Court’s decision on the Hijab controversy, Dakshina Kannada DC ordered a holiday for all schools and colleges tomorrow (March 15). According to the order, external examinations will be held as per the schedule, but internal examinations of all schools and colleges will be postponed.
A group of students from Karnataka Udupi had challenged the decision of banning the hijab in the court. The students argued that the hijab comes under the religious freedom guaranteed by the Constitution. In such a situation, no college can give any decision regarding the ban in this regard.
The Karnataka government has told the court in the matter that there is no ban on hijab in the country except for the restrictions imposed only related to institutional discipline. In fact, the controversy started when some students of Udupi refused to stop using the hijab, ignoring the teacher’s request. After this the students reached the court.
