New Delhi, February 17

Banning hijab amounted to banning the Quran, advocate Dr Rajiv Kulkarni, who appeared as ‘party in person’, contented in the Karnataka High Court today even as Chief Justice RR Awasthi questioned his contention saying there was no ban on hijab.

Karnataka HC: For you, hijab & Quran are same?

For you, hijab and the Quran are the same?.. Can you show where it says this (Muslim women should sport hijab) in the Quran? Karnataka High Court

“For you hijab and the Quran are the same?” a three-judge Bench led by Chief Justice Awasthi asked Dr Kulkarni.

Noting that the hijab issue was creating mass hysteria and disturbing the mental health, especially of the poor Muslim girls, Kulkarni requested the Bench to pass an order allowing Muslim girls to wear hijab on Fridays and during the coming month of Ramadan.

“The holy Quran says that Muslim women should sport hijab and not expose their body parts like head and neck,” Kulkarni submitted.

“Can you show where it says this in the Quran? Unless you substantiate it, how can we accept it?” Justice Awasthi asked.
