Hijab plea: ‘Let us use dupatta to cover head’ | India News – Times of India

BENGALURU: A group of students that has challenged the hijab ban in their pre-university college in Udupi requested the Karnataka high court on Monday to let them cover their heads in class with dupattas or stoles – clothing that matches the uniform.
They sought clarification on the court’s interim order restraining students from wearing any religious attire not conforming to the dress code or uniform of colleges until further orders.
While high schools have reopened, CM Bommai said colleges, shut since February 9, will reopen on February 16.
Another plea sought hearing to be deferred till assembly polls are over. Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi pointed out that the applications have not been listed. “If this request is made by the EC or some authority holding elections, we can consider,” he said, adjourning hearing to Tuesday.
