Answering three questions, the decision on the hijab came
The Karnataka High Court has not considered Hijab as an integral part of Islam. Rejecting all the petitions of Muslim students in this case, the court answered three questions related to hijab before delivering the verdict. One question was- is wearing hijab a compulsory religious practice under Islam? To this, the court said in its reply that wearing hijab for Muslim women is not a necessary religious custom in Islam. The second question was whether the hijab is a necessary Islamic tradition under the right to freedom of expression and privacy? In response to this, the High Court said that students cannot object to the fixation of school uniforms. The third question was whether the government order of February 5 was arbitrary? On this, the court said that the government has the right to issue this order.
