The Hijab and saffron scarves are prohibited at state-run minority schools in Karnataka
Saffron scarves and religious flags have been banned from minority welfare organizations in Karnataka, including Maulana Azad Model English Medium Schools.
In accordance with a circular issued by Major Manivannan P, students are barred from wearing saffron shawls, scarves, hijabs, religious flags, or anything similar in the classroom until further notice.
Minority welfare residential schools, colleges, and Maulana Azad Model English-medium institutions are all covered by the High Court’s decision. Schools and colleges are barred from allowing students to wear saffron shawls, scarves or the Hijab, or any other religious flags, because of this.
Following a High Court decision last week, there has been some simmering tension at schools and colleges over the denial of entrance to minority females wearing Burqas and Hijabs.
A total of nine people were prosecuted under Section 144 of the CrPC for violating the district’s prohibitory orders. Protesting against the PU College administration’s refusal to allow Muslim women to wear the burqa on campus, they demonstrated on Friday.
