New Delhi: The decision of the Karnataka High Court regarding the Hijab controversy has been challenged by Muslim girl students in the Supreme Court. But the top court has categorically refused to hear the matter immediately. Earlier, the top court had said that the matter would be taken up for hearing after the Holi holiday. At that time, Chief Justice (CJI) NV Ramanna had said that the matter would be heard after the Holi holiday.
In fact, Muslim girl students have argued in the petition that it is their right to wear hijab under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution. Explain that Article 19(1)(a) gives the right to freedom of expression. Earlier, the Karnataka High Court, in its judgment on the hijab controversy, had said that hijab is not a part of the compulsory practice of Islam. Against this decision of the court, 2 petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court. Advocate Sanjay Hegde appeared for the petitioner.
Let us tell you that the Hijab controversy started in Karnataka in January. Here in a government college in Udupi, 6 Muslim girls suddenly reached the college wearing hijab.
