In the Hijab Case, the Supreme Court has once again lashed out at the petitioners, refusing to hear them immediately. The petitioners had appealed to the court that the examinations are going to start soon, so the matter should be heard. But the court made it clear what to do with the examination of this case. The Chief Justice said that you people should not sensationalize this subject. Let us tell you that no specific date has been fixed by the court in this regard when the hearing on this matter will take place.
The Karnataka High Court gave its verdict on the Hijab controversy. A bench headed by the Chief Justice did not recognize the hijab as an integral part of Islam. The court said that the hijab is not an integral part of Islam. According to the Holy Quran, it is not mandatory for Muslim women to wear hijab. The court said that the surah related to this says that there is no provision for any kind of punishment for not wearing hijab, in such a situation it is not a necessity but a directive. Hijab is a necessary garment for going to public places but it is not religious compulsion.
The Karnataka High Court had said that what the framer of the Constitution of our country had said about the veil system about 50 years ago, the same can apply to the hijab, niqab as well. Such practices hinder the progress of women of any section, especially Muslim women. At the same time, such practices are against the basic spirit of secularism and equal opportunities for public participation by our constitution. The court also made it clear that the order not to wear a hijab in the classroom is against the freedom of girls anywhere and the freedom to wear clothes of their choice. They can wear clothes of their choice outside the classroom.
