Karnataka Hijab Ban Verdict: Today, the Supreme Court ruled in a split decision on petitions challenging the Karnataka hijab ban. The petitions against the hijab ban were dismissed by Justice Hemant Gupta, while they were allowed by Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia.
According to Justice Dhulia, the education of girls was his top priority. Ultimately, it’s a matter of choice.”
In his judgment for dismissing the case, Justice Gupta framed and answered 11 questions. According to him, the Karnataka High Court’s decision is correct.
Hijab – headscarves worn by some Muslim women – had been banned in schools and colleges by the Karnataka High Court. A Karnataka minister said today that the hijab ban remains in effect.
According to the legal news website Bar and Bench, Justice Gupta rejected the pleas based on several questions, including whether the government order violated students’ fundamental rights and whether wearing the hijab is an essential religious practice.
I dismiss the appeal,” Justice Gupta said. “The answer is against the appellant.”
A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court will hear the matter before the Chief Justice of India.
On February 5, the BJP-ruled state government prohibited students from wearing hijab on campus. We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision.
However, I had expected an order today. A larger bench will hear the matter. For now, the Karnataka government’s no-hijab rule on campus remains unchanged.
A petition filed by some Muslim students at Government Pre-University Girls College in Karnataka’s Udupi was dismissed by the Karnataka High Court on March 15.
Islamic faith does not consider wearing the hijab inside classrooms an essential religious practice. The high court ruled accordingly.
After hearing arguments for 10 days, the bench of Justices Gupta and Dhulia reserved their judgement on the pleas on September 22.
Muslim girls may stop attending classes if they are not allowed to wear the hijab in the classroom, according to lawyers representing the petitioners.
The lawyers representing the state had argued that the Karnataka government order that sparked the controversy was “religion neutral”.
