Hijab Controversy

 Hijab Controversy

India is full of diversity in terms of religion and culture it is a learning point that how after having lots of diversity India is still united. A big credit goes to our judiciary as it is considered as temple of justice and protector of rights, we all have lots faith and ambition from our courts.  

Recently in Udupi, Karnataka some colleges ban hijab in class room and restricted some girls to enter college with hijab, from there this hijab controversy takes its rise, as girls were not allowed to attend classes while wearing hijab so they started protesting in college campus in the name of right to profess religion and when nothing happens, some girls filed WRIT Petition under article 226 in Karnataka High court regarding the violation of fundamental rights, as in Indian constitution it is given under article 25 - 28, Right to Religion. And in specific article 25 deals with Freedom of conscience and free profession, practice and propagation of religion. 

The petitioner argued to high court that wearing hijab is an important and inseparable religious practice and plead to the court to direct the concerned authorities and colleges to change their rules. While the pleading was going on in the court, protest was not getting stopped and also some Hindu students started wearing saffron scarf in protest against the Muslim protesters and then a video got viral in which boys were teasing a girl who was wearing hijab. This type of violence is not acceptable because of this violence it was ordered to colleges to shut down for 3 to 4 days.

In the verdict of High court three bench Judge give the judgement by upholding the ban of hijab by the state government and stated that colleges have discretion to select the uniform. In supporting the judgement court said that in Islam or in Quran it is nowhere mention that wearing hijab is an essential practice and also said that the reason behind wearing hijab is discrimination to women maybe they are wearing hijab by their own choice but it cannot be determined that they are wearing hijab by their own or they are been forced by the parents. 

My viewpoint regarding this issue is, I believe High court took a really hard step which can agitate violation but this is something which should be done because this is a discrimination against the women to force them to wear hijab or scarf but it should be totally fine if they want to wear it by their own will because everyone has right to profess his religion. 

We can do a big debate on do hijab makes the women oppressed because we see many arguments the is women are oppressed then how they are coming forward for the protest and for their rights. Now it seems that this case is going towards the Supreme Court for appeal. But further a huge debate is going on this topic worldwide, many countries has already ban practice of religion in schools or in educational institute because they believe that education institute is for education and not for practicing any religion, every one should be equally treated.
