Burqa Wearing Students Boycott Exams As The Karnataka High Court Ruled That Hijab Is Not An Obligatory Islamic Practice

On March 15, The Karnataka high court pronounced its verdict on the hijab row, proclaiming that "hijab is not an essential part of Islam" a few hours after the ruling. Female Muslim students at a government Pre-University College (PUC) in Karnataka's Yadgir city refused to take the exam. Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi, who presided over the full bench of the High Court, said, "We are of the considered opinion that wearing of Hijab by Muslim women does not form a part of essential religious practice in the Islamic faith."
