Hijab ban: Student moves Supreme Court challenging high court’s ‘restrain’ order


New Delhi: A fresh plea has been filed in the Supreme Court challenging the interim order of the Karnataka high court in which students have been restrained from wearing religious dresses in colleges.

A Full Bench of the Karnataka High Court had on Thursday observed that it will issue an order in this regard.

A full bench of the Karnataka high court on Thursday heard the hijab ban case and said it wants the matter to be resolved at the earliest but till the time the matter remains pending students are not allowed to wear religious clothing in schools and colleges to maintain peace and tranquillity.

As the Chief Justice delivered the interim order, the lawyer appearing for the Muslim students argued that this interim order will amount to the suspension of rights. “We are told to choose between food and water and both are essential,” the lawyer said.
