Supreme Court Refuses Urgent Hearing on Hijab Controversy, says- SC will Intervene at Right Time

In the Hijab controversy, the Supreme Court has refused to urgently hear the petition challenging the interim order of the Karnataka High Court. The Supreme Court stated that it is looking into what is happening in Karnataka. The Supreme Court asked the lawyers not to make it a national-level issue. The Supreme Court will intervene at the right time.

Earlier, due to the deepening hijab controversy, the Karnataka High Court had issued an interim order not to wear hijab in schools and colleges till the decision. But now this order has been challenged in the Supreme Court. For this, a petition has been filed before the Supreme Court. The petitioners have challenged the High Court's decision in the Supreme Court.

What the Karnataka High Court said

The Karnataka High Court, which is hearing the hijab case, told the students that they should not insist on wearing such religious items in educational institutions till the disposal of the matter. A three-member bench of Chief Justice Rituraj Awasthi said that it wants the matter to be resolved expeditiously but till then peace should be maintained. The court said that it will pass the order. The bench fixed the matter for hearing on Monday and said that educational institutions can start classes for the students.

At the same time, the counsel for the petitioners, Devdutt requested the court to consider their objection and said that such an order would amount to suspension of the constitutional rights of their client under Article 25. On this, the Chief Justice said that this arrangement is for a few days, till the matter is not resolved. At the same time, on the instructions of the High Court, the government has decided to open schools from February 14 to class 10.
