Amid ongoing controversy over hijab in Karnataka, BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj today said a law should be made to ban Hijab across the country, reported Times Now.

“The opposition brought the Hijab issue in the run-up to the elections. This rule (for uniform) was formed in Karnataka, people did this (row) in reply. But I think, a law should be made to ban hijab across the country,” he said after casting vote in the fourth phase of Uttar Pradesh polls.

Karnataka has been witnessing widespread protests over the Hijab row that erupted after six Hijab-clad girl students were not allowed to enter a government pre-university college in Udupi.

The state government on Tuesday told the High Court that there is no restriction on wearing Hijab in India with reasonable restrictions subject to institutional discipline.

The Muslim girls from Udupi district have moved the HC challenging the restriction on Hijab inside the educational institutions.

“The right to wear Hijab falls under Article 19(1)(A) and not Article 25. If one wishes to wear Hijab, then there is no restriction ‘subject to the institutional discipline’. The rights claimed under Article 19(1)(A) is related to Article 19(2) where the government places a reasonable restriction subjected to institutional restriction,” Karnataka Advocate General Prabhuling Navadgi  told the High Court, PTI reported.
