The Supreme Court on Thursday gave a split verdict on petitions challenging the ban on hijabs worn by some Muslim women in schools and colleges in Karnataka. The case is being heard by Justices Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia.
The court has now reserved its judgement on the pleas against the Karnataka High Court judgement refusing to lift the ban on hijab on September 22 after hearing arguments for 10 days.
Justice Hemant Gupta says the matter is referred to the Chief Justice Of India for appropriate direction.
“It’s a matter of choice, nothing more, nothing less,” says Justice Dhulia while pronouncing the order. Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia allowed the appeals and set aside the Karnataka High Court order.
