While the High Court has banned the wearing of religious symbols by students in the classrooms of any college in Karnataka, the uniform rule for private college students in Mysore has been repealed and Muslim students have been allowed to wear the Hijab, reported The Times of India.
The Mysore College has for the first time allowed Muslim students to wear the Hijab as the Hijab controversy in Karnataka has been raging for the past few weeks.
The historic private college in Mysore has taken this decision and allowed students to wear the Hijab.
Some protested against the wearing of hijab by Muslim students in Pew colleges in Udupi district of Karnataka, while another party supported it. This led to successive protests in and around the city in support of and against the hijab.
Thus, wearing the hijab in colleges was banned. The Karnataka government has ordered that the uniform system be made compulsory in schools and colleges. Udupi District College students have filed a case in the Karnataka High Court against the ban on hijab.
The Karnataka High Court, which heard the case, issued an interim order “that religious attire should not be worn in schools and colleges until the trial is over.”
Meanwhile, at a college in Tumkur, police registered a first information report against 20 students for protesting against the wearing of Hijab by 144 students and for violating 144 restraining orders.
