They say that hijab has not caused any problem in education for so long. Not even obstacles. All of a sudden this restriction.
The controversy spread to other parts of the state. Somewhere in the state, a section of Hindu students were seen wearing purple sheets and veils against the hijab. There is a quarrel between the students of the two religions somewhere. Karnataka Chief Minister Basbaraj Bommai himself has decided to close all schools and colleges in the state for three days due to the hijab controversy. When an incident of wearing hijab came to light in Karnataka last Tuesday, it gave rise to widespread discussion and criticism across India.
