The case is currently being heard in Karnataka high court.
Senior advocate Prof Ravivarma Kumar highlighted that only the hijab is mentioned in the government order, leaving all other religious symbols.
"If people sporting turban can be in the Army, what prevents these girls wearing hijab from attending classes?"
"Students wearing the dupatta, bangle, bindi, crucifix under the neck, and pendants are not being sent out of classes."
"Why only these girls? This is a matter which comes under Article 15."
"which talks about discrimination on the ground of religion."
Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi, Justice Krishna S. Dixit, and Justice Khaji Jaibunnesa Mohiyuddin adjourned the hearing.
