The Hijab case pending in the Supreme Court is likely to be heard after Holi's holiday. The Supreme Court has refused to hear immediately in the Karnataka Hijab case. CJI DY Chandrachud said that, after Holi, he will hear the case. It was also requested in the petition that the students should be allowed for the examination by wearing hijab. She has already spoiled a year. Interim relief should be considered in this matter. In fact, in October 2022, a two-judge bench gave a ruled verdict in the Supreme Court. After the separation of the two judges, the matter was sent to the big bench. Since then a bench of three judges has not been formed. Many students did not appear in the examination as they were not allowed to wear hijab and write the exam.
The hijab crisis in Karnataka became an international issue as it turned into law and order problems and communal issues. Hindu activists and minority groups came into a state of conflict. The crisis also had a profound impact on the psyche of the students and was divided on the basis of religion on the premises.
The Karnataka High Court has rejected the students' applications in this regard and upheld the government's order on uniforms. It also further said that the hijab is not an essential part of Islam.
