The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday said the Karnataka hijab case listing was delayed because some judges weren’t well and it would be taken up soon.
Chief Justice of India NV Ramana told senior counsel Meenakshi Arora that he would constitute a Bench soon to take up petitions challenging the Karnataka High Court verdict refusing to lift the ban on hijab in educational institutes of the state. Some Muslim students and organisations have moved the Supreme Court challenging the Karnataka High Court’s verdict upholding the ban on religious dresses in educational institutions in the state.
