The Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing of an appeal case against the order of the Karnataka High Court, which refused to stay the Karnataka government’s order banning the wearing of hijab. The Supreme Court has adjourned the decision on the appeal case against the order of the Karnataka High Court, which had refused to stay the Karnataka government’s order banning the wearing of hijab in educational institutions. In February, the Karnataka government issued an order banning Muslim girl students from wearing the hijab in educational institutions. Protests were held against this in different parts of the state and the country. Some Muslim students have filed a petition in the Karnataka High Court seeking a ban on the government’s order and allowing them to wear hijab in educational institutions. The High Court heard them and on March 15 dismissed the petitions holding that wearing hijab is not a compulsory religious ritual. Many people filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against the order of the High Court. A bench of Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice Suthansu Thulia was hearing the petitions. During the hearing of the case, the judges raised various questions regarding the hijab and religious customs. The final hearing of the case took place on Thursday in this matter. Senior advocate Hajifa Ahmadi, appearing for the petitioners, argued, “The government should give priority to providing education to the majority of the people. But it seems that the Kannada government is paying more attention to the habits of the students. ‘Let’s save the girl child; The state government and the central government are often raising the slogan ‘Let’s educate’. However, this was not reflected in their actions. Is the state government going to deprive girl students of their right to education because they are wearing some religious items? If girls are given proper education opportunities, they will be able to decide how to dress in future.” Senior advocates Dushyant Dave, Salman Khurshid, Devdat Kamath and Sanjay Hegde also presented their arguments on behalf of the petitioners. After that, the judges ordered a postponement of the decision on the matter. Since Judge Hemant Gupta retires on October 16, it is expected that the verdict will be delivered on that day.
