Hijab Case Delayed as ‘one of the judges aren’t well’ and a bench will be constituted for hearing.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday, August 2, said it would set up a bench to hear a batch of pleas challenging the Karnataka high court verdict refusing to lift the ban on hijab in educational institutions of the state, and added one of the judges was unwell leading to a delay.

The case was heard before CJI N.V. Ramana by the Senior counsel Meenaskhi Arora, who was seeking listing of the matter but the CJI said that the one of the judge is not well and further bench will be constituted for the hearing of the case.

The case was on appeal challenging the judgement of Karnataka High Court on March 15, where court upheld the Karnataka government order effectively empowering college development committees of government colleges in the State to ban the wearing of hijab (headscarves) by Muslim girl students in college campus.
