SC adjourns hijab ban hearing till Sept 7

Friday 09th September 2022 02:45 EDT

Supreme Court on Monday adjourned the hearing on various pleas against Karnataka High Court's judgment upholding the ban on hijab in educational institutions. The court will further hear these pleas on Wednesday. Various petitioners have approached the top court challenging the Karnataka HC order upholding the Karnataka government's order which directs strict enforcement of schools and colleges' uniform rules. One of the petitioners in the top court has alleged "step-motherly behaviour of government authorities which has prevented students from practising their faith and resulted in an unwanted law and order situation".
