Petitioners conclude their arguments, our patience is answering… Supreme Court’s comment on the Hijab case hearing

The Supreme Court is hearing the issue of Karnataka hijab ban controversy. Hearing the matter for the ninth day on Wednesday, the Supreme Court advised the petitioners to conclude their arguments at the earliest. The court has said that his patience is now paying off. The Supreme Court said that it will give only one hour to the lawyers of the petitioners to conclude their arguments on Thursday.

A bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia told senior advocate Huzefa Ahmadi, appearing for one of the petitioners, “We will give one hour’s time to all of you.” You put an end to it. Now, this is an overdose of hearing.’ The bench said that several lawyers have already presented their arguments before it. It said, ‘We are losing our patience.’

Lawyer praises the bench

Praising the bench, Ahmadi said, “I must say that you (the bench) have listened to us very patiently.” ‘Do you think we have any other option?’ Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and Karnataka Advocate General Prabhuling K. Navadgi and Additional Solicitor General KM Natraj argued for the state government, while senior advocates Dushyant Dave and Salman Khurshid appeared for the Muslim petitioners.

‘Didn’t touch any religious aspect’

The Karnataka government on Wednesday informed the Supreme Court that the state government has not touched on any religious aspect in the hijab ban controversy and that the ban is limited to the classroom only. The state government said that hijab is not banned even in school premises outside the classroom. The counsel appearing for the state government insisted that the state has only said that educational institutions can prescribe uniforms for students, which has nothing to do with religion.
