The hearing on the Hijab controversy is going on in the Supreme Court for the eighth day on Tuesday. Solicitor General (SG) Tushar Mehta said that hijab is not a mandatory part of Islam. There are some Islamic countries where there is a protest against the hijab. Women are demonstrating. The court said in which country. SG said – in Iran. This proves that wearing hijab is not necessary in Islam.
Earlier in the hijab controversy, the Karnataka government has told the Supreme Court that the girl students who have filed a petition against the hijab ban are doing so under the influence of the radical organization Popular Front of India (PFI).
SG told Supreme Court – PFI organization is making girls pawns
The hearing of the petitions filed on the hijab ban is going on in the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Karnataka government, said that the PFI organization is conspiring to disturb communal harmony by making girls pawns.
Mehta said – till 2021, no girl has any problem with the hijab ban
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told a bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia that on March 29, 2013, the Government Pre-University Girls College, Udupi, passed a resolution and fixed the uniform. Then the hijab was not made a part of the uniform and at that time no girl had any problem with this uniform. When the petitioners also took admission in this college in 2021, they also followed the rules of uniform.
‘In 2022, PFI ran a hate campaign on social media’
He said, ‘In 2022, PFI ran a campaign on social media, whose purpose was to spread nuisance by hurting the religious sentiments of the people. It’s not that some girls suddenly decided not to wear the hijab. All this happened under a well-planned conspiracy. These children were doing what PFI was getting them to do. ,
‘If the state government had not issued a notification on February 5 preventing girl students from wearing such clothes which can cause damage to peace, harmony and law and order, it would have been dereliction of duty.’
On March 15, the Karnataka High Court upheld its earlier order banning the hijab.
Petitions filed in Supreme Court against the decision of Karnataka High Court
On March 15, the Karnataka High Court dismissed a petition by some Muslim girl students of the Government Pre-University Girls College, Udupi, demanding that they wear hijab in class. Upholding its earlier order, the court said that wearing hijab is not a part of the essential practice of Islam. It does not need to be protected under Article 25 of the Constitution. Challenging this decision of the court, some girls had filed a petition in the Supreme Court, which is being heard.
