Students Appeal To Supreme Court After High Court Upholds The Hijab Ban

While the conflict between Russia and Ukraine keeps going, the media seems to have forgotten about the ongoing Karnataka hijab row. With the petitioners trying to get permission to wear hijabs to educational institutions, the debate around this topic has been heated. However, we received a judgement from the Karnataka High Court which upheld the verdict that hijabs aren’t allowed in the classrooms. The petitioners have now moved to Supreme Court.

After the verdict by the high court that hijabs shall not be allowed in the classrooms, the students conducted a walkout. Furthermore, the students have refused to attend classes and even give their exams.

The petition has now been moved to the Supreme Court which has been filed by a Muslim student in the apex court. The petition points out that the HC has refused to see one’s right to wear the hijab as the right to privacy under Article 21 of the Constitution. It says that the freedom of conscience forms as a part of the right to privacy. The petition also further states that the right to wear the hijab comes under the ambit of expression which is under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution.
