In a major judgement, the Karnataka High Court upheld the ban on hijab in educational institutions. With this, it dismissed a bunch of petitions that challenged this provision of ban.
In the order, the Karnataka High Court said that the prescription of uniform is a reasonable restriction and upheld the hijab ban in colleges.
With the judgement, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai appealed for peace and harmony.
He stated, "All students should follow the high court order and should not boycott classes or examinations. We will have to abide by the court orders and will take strict action against those who would take law and order in hands."
