Breaking: Karnataka Hijab row- High court rules Wearing Hijab not essential practice in Islam

The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday ruled that wearing a hijab is not an essential practice in Islam

The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday ruled that wearing a hijab is not an essential practice in Islam. The crucial remarks from the high court come amid a massive controversy in the southern state, which began late last year over wearing of hijabs in the educational institutions.

The Karnataka government order – dated February 5 – is “not unconstitutional”, the court said

Whether prescription of school uniform is violative of rights. 3. Whether government order on February 5 was issued without application of mind and manifestly arbitrary?
