The Karnataka High Court upheld the hijab ban after 11 days of hearing on the matter. The HC upheld the ban on the grounds that “wearing the hijab is not an essential religious practice”. Karnataka HC further added that the government can prescribe a uniform and a uniform is a reasonable restriction of basic rights which students cannot object to.
