High Court Prohibits Wearing Of Religious Clothes In Schools – Colleges


The hearing was held for the third consecutive day in the High Court regarding the ongoing Hijab controversy in Karnataka. The High Court has banned wearing religious clothes in schools and colleges until this matter’s decision. The court said- We will pronounce the verdict as soon as possible, but it is necessary to maintain peace. The court will next hear the matter on Monday.

During the hearing of the case, the High Court first said that we would see whether wearing a hijab is a fundamental right or not. After this, the media was instructed not to report the oral proceedings of the court but to wait till the final order came. The matter was referred to a larger bench of the High Court on Wednesday. A bench is hearing the matter of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi, Justice Krishna S Dixit and Justice JM Khaji.

Know who said what in the court on Thursday

After this, a long debate took place in court regarding this matter.

  • Sanjay Hegde: It is not just a matter of religious faith but also a question of girls’ education. Apart from this, there is no provision regarding uniforms and penalties in the Education Act of Karnataka.
  • Chief Justice: We have understood your point that there is no provision in the Karnataka Education Act regarding this.
  • Hegde then referred to the Supreme Court judgment in the Puttaswamy case regarding privacy. He then referred to the decision of the Kerala High Court, which said that the hijab is an important religious symbol.
  • Hegde: In this case, the court should give interim order so that the petitioner girls can get relief and attend the college for the remaining three months in this session.
  • Chief Justice: We will issue an order to open schools and colleges in this matter, but as long as the hearing continues, no student should insist on wearing religious clothes. It is a matter of a few days, but you guys should not wear such things until the court’s decision.
  • Hegde: But our faith cannot be stopped for a few days.
  • Chief Justice: We prohibit everyone from wearing religious symbols until the hearing continues. (The lawyer objected to this) The hearing of this matter will be held at 2.30 pm on Monday.

Four girls have reached the court for the permission of the hijab

Four girl students have filed a petition in the High Court demanding that they be allowed to wear the hijab in the schools and colleges of the state. Senior advocate Sanjay Hegde is giving arguments on behalf of the girl students in the High Court. Regarding the school dress code, the government’s side is kept by Advocate General Prabhuling.

What happened during the hearing on Wednesday?

The hearing on the Hijab Controversy was held in the High Court on Wednesday before a single bench. During the hearing, Judge KS Dixit observed that the case raises some constitutional questions of fundamental importance. The Chief Justice should decide whether a larger bench can be constituted to hear it in such a situation. There was a demand for interim relief from the girl students, which the Karnataka government opposed.

SC said- If we listen, the High Court will not hear the matter.

Hijab dispute reached the Supreme Court on Thursday. While transferring this case from the Karnataka High Court to the Supreme Court, Congress leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal demanded a hearing from the Constitution Bench of 9 judges. During the hearing of the petition, the CJI said, ‘First let the decision of the Karnataka High Court be heard Today. After that, we will look into the matter.


The bench said, “Today, the hearing of this matter is going on in the High Court. So why intervene in this matter at the moment? The Supreme Court also refused to give any fixed date for the hearing and said it would hear only after the High Court’s decision. Simultaneously, the Supreme Court bench rejected his demand.

CM Basavaraj Bommai appeals to maintain peace.

A holiday has been declared in schools due to the hijab controversy. Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that schools had observed holidays to maintain peace and order between the school premises and the students. I appeal to all the people not to do anything which will disturb the peace in the school premises and the state. Since the matter is pending in the court, and a hearing is going on every day, we must create a peaceful atmosphere to deliver justice.
