NEW DELHI: Arguing against the Karnataka government’s decision to enforce uniforms in an attempt to ban religious-related clothing, such as headscarves, from educational institutions, Islamists on Wednesday Five told the Supreme Court that the choice of appearance and dress is part of women’s inalienable right to student privacy.

An SC bench of Judges Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia reserved the ruling on a series of 26 pleas in favor of the headscarf. With Gupta set to retire on October 16, a ruling will be made before that date.
Huzefa Ahmadi, the Muslim advocate, said on Thursday, “The ban on headscarves has resulted in girls dropping out of school. If they are prevented from receiving education in government institutions, they will be deprived of their basic rights”.
