    What text was used would be in the judgement that was passed.

    The mention is of a dastaar or head covering.

    Im not privy to the judgement.

    Do you have any idea scriptural texts were even used in the judgement?

    Sikhs dont believe they are a sect of Hinduism but Indian state does. Who is right the Sikhs or the Indian state?

    Indian state is secular bro. They can appoint a Sikh or Muslim representative to prove it.

    Yes scriptual texts are used in judgements.

    No one calls Sikhs as a sect of Hinduism. They are treated as a religious minority.

    Only for civil personal matters hindu Buddhists jains are treated under the same law, muslims have separate personal laws.

    Thats why the call for a uniform civil code.

    This post has nothing to do with hijab in my opinion. You are derailing the thread towards Sikhs and being taking away from the focus that is hijab in Islam.

    So what is it now?

    You can come to school in Hijab
    You can enter into the in Hijab
    You can walk around inside the school in Hijab
    But when you enter the classroom, you take off Hijab.
    And soon as you walk out of the class, you can take Hijab back on.


    Exactly what are you guys trying to achieve here? Uniformity?

    But overall,

    Did you notice how dumb you sound?

    Read by post again,

    INSIDE the school, you will have Hijabis, and you will Sikhs and and you will have those stinky Sanghies (the hatred filled terrorists) wearing burrowed saffron scarfs and hats, and regular n peaceful Hindus wearing a loath of strings around their wrists as a religious faith symbols, and some Hindu females having a red dot on their foreheads, and Christians may have a cross hanging around their necks, all roaming free. No problem.

    But when all these guys enter into a CLASS ROOM, the Muslim females need to remove Hijab to score equality?

    Whoever came up with this, and believes in this, should be given the Darwinism award.

    Sikhs have court verdicts for them. Muslims didn't because most Muslim scholars deemed hijab to be non essential attire which was taken into account while giving the verdict.

    You are barking up the wrong tree here. Your frustration (if there is) should be directed towards the scholars who can't stay as a union and can't even give definite answer to such trivial questions such as "is hijab essential in Islam?"

    When you can't make up your mind, what courts will do?

    If i am not wrong, the local ulema of udupi where all this began had already said that hijab is not necessary within the classroom.

    It was only CFI that tried to raise the issue to polarise voters in UP againist the BJP.

    Let's take the following into consideration.

    1. The ulema said it is non essential.

    2. CFI used it as agenda.

    Now most Muslim ppers here are siding with CFI, the radical wing as it is already obvious from above.

    My question to those, if scholars say something and the radical extremist group another, what you will choose?

    Will you go towards the extremist way?

    Small issue has been blown out of proportions now.

    Before I made my first post here I wasn't aware that the school had a dress code from the beginning it was established that you cannot wear a Hijab and the muslim kids dressed accordingly per school rules all this time, till now, no one had any problems.

    Now after all these decades a Hijab issue suddenly rises out of the blue, this is politically motivated, by whom I do not know. This really has nothing to do with the Hijab, as the students were well aware for years that Hijab was not part of the school dress code and they only chose to act on it now out of the blue..

    Watch the below for instance, now the students who did not attend the exams wants to take the exam, which the school seems to be willing to accommodate (which they don't have to as it is unfair on the students who attended the exam). However the muslim kids are bringing up the same issue of wanting to wear the hijab in the school during the exam, which they know is against the school dress code and against the court verdict. Going round and round to cause issues..

    Bumping this up as you are intent on derailing the other thread..

    The education act which includes restrictions on dress code in schools has been in place since 1983. Here are other cases relevant to this discussion.

    https://www.scobserver.in/journal/ka...-for-students/

    Point is - why the girls who had never worn hijab before November - suddenly started wearing them.

    Indian Muslims need to push for a Uniform Civil Code. As long as they don't Hindu and Sikh religious practices will be deemed cultural and essential and allowed, while only Muslim ones will be banned.

    Do keep up. Sikhs were allowed to wear turbans but Muslim women cannot cover the head. Of course its related. None of your countrymen can so perhaps you can explain why the difference in judgement?

    Head covering is an integral part of Islam for women. Hundreds of millions dont wear it for fashion.

    Indian posters should just admit, Hindutva ideology is anti-Islam. But no matter how much anti they are it wont change the history of Muslims ruling over their forefathers, its time to move on for Yogi and Bubboo.

    Hindu extremists turned up in their numbers, all men attacking women. Attacking women is nothing new in India but now they are targetting Muslim women, due to their brave souls. It seems it was all planned, handing out Saffron scarfs to all these students.

    India as a nation should be careful, its a ticking time bomb of communal violence on a large scale.

    The court thinks Turbans are mandatory, every Sikh man must wear one. I would like to know where they got this idea from?

    Im glad Sikhs can wear their religious clothing but so should Muslims , Hindus an any others.

    Its India not France, the country is very religious. India doesnt understand secularism, it never will and its not something it should even entertain. You dont have to follow everything your colonisers do.

    How would I know what is essential or non essential means in case of Islam? It's upto your scholars to answer. Ask them. You are asking it from the wrong person here.

    Since you aren't a Muslim scholar, your words are meaningless regarding essential or non essential attire for Muslims.

    The court ruling is in public domain. I posted a link above to help if you really are interested 😀. There is an explanation provided by the bench. Not sure why you need others to explain it to you.

    Im not asking for an explanation but a confirmation of what sources/texts were used.

    Please post the Quranic texts for the ruling on Muslim women and also the same for ruling on Sikh Turbans.

    Finally a confident Indian poster on this subject, looking forward to your reply.

    That should be there in the ruling. The transcripts of the court proceedings should be available as well.
    Given your interest it should be a fascinating read for you

    I'm guessing given your legal background and that of an islamic scholar it should be easy for you to help with the SC hearing on this subject

    One doesnt need to be an expert in anything to understand Hindutva India's conclusion on its continued hate of Muslims.

    Student In Hijab Offers Namaz In Madhya Pradesh College, Probe Ordered

    Bhopal: A video that shows a Muslim student in hijab offering namaz in a Madya Pradesh university has led to a controversy. The video, shared on social media, shows the student offering namaz inside a classroom in Dr Harisingh Gour Sagar University, a central institution.

    A right-wing group, Hindu Jagran Manch, has complained to the university administration to act against the student.

    The university said it has ordered an investigation.

    "A committee has been formed to investigate this. Along with this, students have been told to keep religious worship at home. The university is for studying," Vice Chancellor Neelima Gupta said.

    The university's Registrar Santosh Sahgaura told news agency PTI they have got a complaint along with a video clip showing the student in hijab offering namaz inside a classroom.

    "The five-member committee will submit a report within three days and action will be taken based on this," Mr Sahgaura said.

    The university has no formal dress code for students on campus, but they must attend classes in "basic ethical dressing," the university's media officer Vivek Jaiswal told PTI.

    The Hindu Jagran Manch's Sagar unit chief Umesh Saraf alleged the student seen in the video has been attending lectures wearing a hijab for a long time.

    "Such religious activities should not be allowed in educational institutions. She has been coming in hijab for long, but she was seen offering namaz inside the classroom on Friday afternoon. This is objectionable as educational institutions are a place for every religion," Mr Saraf said.

    "A complaint has been submitted to the Vice Chancellor and the Registrar," he said, and referred to the Karnataka High Court's verdict on March 15 that dismissed petitions seeking to allow wearing hijab inside classrooms.

    The hijab is not an essential religious practice, the Karnataka High Court had said as it backed a ban on wearing hijab in classrooms.

    The order has been challenged in the Supreme Court by Niba Naaz, a student who was not among the five who had originally petitioned against the hijab ban.

    There are numerous articles that show the timeline of events. I would also like to know why girls who never wore the hijab before suddenly insisted that they could not attend school without it knowing that the school already had a dress code in place.

    Karnataka Schoolgirl Asked To Change From Burqa To Appear For Exam

    Bengaluru: As Class 10 board exams began in Karnataka, a student in the state's Hubballi district was turned away for wearing the burqa and allowed to appear for the papers only after she returned, having changed into the school uniform.
    Authorities said she was given extra time to change her clothes and remove the burqa.

    "She had come for her exams in civil dress. She did not follow the uniform dress code and was wearing burqa. We convinced her that she has to follow the high court order. She changed and she is taking her exams now," a senior government official Dharwad Mohan Kumar said.

    However, in a similar incident in Bagalkot district, a schoolgirl chose to skip the exam when asked to change out of her burqa.

    With the high schools exams starting Monday, Karnataka Ministers said anyone violating the High Court ruling on hijab will not be permitted to write the tests.

    According to Home Minister Araga Jnanendra, anyone violating the rules would face action.

    "Whoever violates the rule will face the action. We will not compromise on it. Everyone should obey the high court order. Students have to remove the hijab and write the exam," Mr Jnanendra said.

    Primary and Secondary Education Minister BC Nagesh too echoed the same sentiment.

    "Police will naturally take action against anyone violating the government rules. I am confident that no child will give opportunity for such things," he said.


    Ads by
    He asked the students to face the exams confidently without any fear.

    More than 8.74 lakh students have enrolled to appear for the exam in over 48,000 halls in 3,440 centres across the State. The last exam is on April 11.

    However, some Muslim girls had threatened to "boycott" the exams in protest, news agency PTI reported.

    The Karnataka High Court had ruled earlier this month that the hijab is not an essential religious practice and everyone should abide by the dress code set by their schools or colleges.

    Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai too said everyone should write the tenth standard exam and pass it.

    "I wish good luck to all the students. It is an important examination. In view of COVID-19, we have made all the arrangements this year for the smooth conduct of the exam. It is our desire that everyone should appear for the exam and pass it and shape their bright future," Mr Bommai told reporters.

    Bengaluru: Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra on Wednesday said the video statement released by Al-Qaeda chief Ayman Al Zawahiri on the hijab row and praising student Muskaan Khan for standing in defence of headscarf and chanting 'Allah-hu-Akbar', proves involvement of "unseen hands" behind the row.

    He said the Home and Police department officials are keeping a watch on developments and track things in this connection.

    "We have been saying this from the beginning, and the High Court too during the hijab verdict had suggested the possibility of some unseen hands behind the hijab row...now it is proved, because Al-Qaeda people are now releasing videos," Mr Jnanendra said in response to a question on Zawahiri praising Ms Muskaan.

    "How things are happening, what is the link. All these things are being looked into by the police...they will find out," he added.

    At the peak of hijab row in February, Muskaan Khan, a second-year BCom student in Mandya was heckled by a group of students, wearing saffron shawl, for entering the college with hijab.

    As they shouted "Jai Shri Ram", Ms Muskaan retorted by shouting "Allah-hu-Akbar." Following this, college authorities intervened and brought the situation under control.

    Condemning the statement by a terror group into the internal matters, Higher Education Minister C N Ashwath Narayn said, "action will be taken against organisations and people linked to them".

    He said the state government has not brought any legislation against practices of any community and was only following the law.

    Reacting to a video statement released by Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri on the hijab row praising Karnataka college student Muskan Khan, her father on Wednesday said the comments of the terror group leader were “wrong”, and he and his family are living peacefully in India.

    Mohammad Hussain Khan also said the police and Karnataka government can initiate any inquiry to ascertain the truth.

    "We don't know anything about it (video), we don't know who he is. I saw him today for the first time. He has said something in Arabic.....We are all living here with love and trust like brothers," news agency PTI quoted Khan as saying.

    When asked about Zawahiri praising Muskan, Khan replied, "People say whatever they want....this is unnecessarily causing trouble. We are living peacefully in our country, we don't want him to talk about us, as he is not related to us... it is wrong, it is an attempt to create division among us."

    Zawahiri, who was rumoured to be dead in 2020, resurfaced in a nine-minute video released by As-Sahab media, on Tuesday.

    As-Sahab is the official media wing of Al Qaeda. Zawahiri’s video was verified by SITE Intelligence, an American non-governmental organisation that tracks online activity of white supremacist and jihadist organisations.

    In the video titled ‘the Noble Woman of India’, Zawahiri chimed into the hijab row which originated in Karnataka and praised Bibi Muskan Zainab Khan, a college student from Udupi who took a prominent part in pro-hijab protests and became known for shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ slogans to counter a group of boys who were chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’.

    Zawahiri said in the video that Indian Muslims should "react to this oppression". He has supposedly stayed on top of developments in India through social media, and said he was so impressed with the video of Muskan that he penned a poem for her. Calling her ‘sister’, Zawahiri said he was moved by her raising "cries of Takbeer".

    This was the Jihadi veteran's first video in five months. He also called out countries that had banned the hijab, slamming Pakistan and Bangladesh for being ‘allies of the West’.

    Reacting to the video, Karnataka home minister Araga Jnanendra said, it proves the involvement of "unseen hands" behind the row. He said the home and police department officials are keeping a watch on developments and tracking things in this connection.

    Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said Al Qaeda will never understand the importance of wearing uniforms in educational institutions. Supporting the stand of the Indian judiciary on banning wearing hijabs in schools and colleges, Sarma said they will become a platform for the display of religious clothes.

    "The Karnataka High Court gave a clear verdict that it's not expected of a student to wear something else except hijab," he told media persons when asked about the video.

    Udupi, Karnataka: In another dramatic development in the Karnataka Hijab ban row, the two students who had first petitioned the court to allow Hijab inside classrooms were today turned away from the examination centre of their final class 12 board examination after they insisted on taking the exams wearing burqas. Aliya Assadi and Resham had collected their hall tickets and turned up donning burqas to take the exams at the Vidyodaya PU College in Udupi. They tried to convince the invigilators and the college principal for around 45 minutes but were eventually not allowed any exception to the court order upholding the state government's ban. They were then seen quietly leaving the premises without taking the exams.

    The exam which began on Friday will go on till May 18. The first paper was Business Studies. Over 6.84 lakh students will write the exam at 1,076 centres across the state. The exams will be held at 1,076 centres across the state amid tight security with cops deployed at various centres to ensure there are no untoward incidents with regard to students following the dress code.

    The state Education Minister BC Nagesh has categorically said that students won't be allowed to take their exams in the hijab. This comes in the wake of many Muslim female students requesting the Minister to allow them to wear their hijabs during the final exams.

    Many Muslim girls who turned up at the examination wearing hijab said they will remove it inside the separate enclosure and will wear it again after the exam is over.

    "Hijab is important and so is writing and passing the exam. Our future depends on our exam results," a Muslim girl student told reporters in Bengaluru, news agency PTI reported.

    17-year-old Aliya Assadi who is at the forefront of the battle against the state's Hijab ban had last week made a renewed appeal to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai saying that he still had a chance "to stop our future from getting ruined".

    In her appeal, Aliya, who is a state-level Karate champion, said the ban on hijab or headscarves will affect many students who want to appear in the Pre-University exams.

    "You still have a chance to stop our future from getting ruined. You can make a decision to allow us to write exams wearing hijab. Please consider this. We are the future of this country," she had tweeted.


    The Karnataka High Court on March 15 dismissed petitions seeking permission to wear hijab inside the classroom. Upholding the state ban, the court had said that wearing a hijab "is not an essential religious practice of Islam" and that the uniform dress rule should be followed in educational institutions where it has been prescribed.

    Last month, over 40 Muslim girl students from Udupi in coastal Karnataka abstained from appearing for the first pre-university examination as they were apparently hurt by the High Court verdict.


    The girls had earlier boycotted the practical examinations as well.

    Proves they are just political activists and just want to create outrage and disturbances. As a sincere student, I would rather take the exam especially now that it is settled in court.

    Seems like the Hindu newspaper pushing them to be extremists.

    Good on the girls for sticking to their faith or beliefs.

    In India the extremist Hindus are stopping people from eating beef, wearing their religous attire and demanding everyone sing Jai Sri Ram. Idiots need to accept people will not bow down to them.

    Religious freedom in India ‘significantly worsened’: US panel


    For third straight year, US commission recommends adding India to religious freedom blacklist over alleged abuses.

    The state of religious freedom in India “significantly worsened” last year, a United States panel has said, calling for targeted sanctions against the country over alleged abuses.

    In its annual report released on Monday, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) urged the State Department for the third straight year to place India on the US list of “countries of particular concern”.

    The independent bipartisan panel accused India of “engaging in and tolerating systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom”.

    The USCIRF puts forward recommendations and documents alleged abuses, but the State Department ultimately makes the decision on the religious freedom blacklist.

    “During the year, the Indian government escalated its promotion and enforcement of policies—including those promoting a Hindu-nationalist agenda—that negatively affect Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Dalits, and other religious minorities,” the report (PDF) said.

    “The government continued to systemize its ideological vision of a Hindu state at both the national and state levels through the use of both existing and new laws and structural changes hostile to the country’s religious minorities.”

    India has previously rejected the commission’s recommendation to blacklist the country over alleged violations of religious freedom, calling its findings “biased”.

    Monday’s report comes as US officials say they are seeking “maximum alignment” with India over Russia policy and the war in Ukraine. Washington has also been strengthening ties with New Delhi amid growing competition with China.

    US President Joe Biden held a virtual meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this month and the two leaders are set to meet in Tokyo next month as part of a summit for the leaders of the Asia-Pacific “Quad” alliance, which also includes Japan and Australia.

    Still, the USCIRF on Monday accused India of repressing human rights defenders from religious minorities.

    The commission hit out against the Indian government over a citizenship law that fast-tracks naturalisation for non-Muslims, calling it “discriminatory”, while also slamming anti-religious conversion laws that it said target interfaith marriages in some states.

    “Government action, including the continued enforcement of anti-conversion laws against non-Hindus, has created a culture of impunity for nationwide campaigns of threats and violence by mobs and vigilante groups, including against Muslims and Christians accused of conversion activities,” the report reads.

    India’s Muslim minority has been facing mob violence and attacks by right-wing Hindu groups.

    Separately, the USCIRF called for designating Afghanistan as a “country of particular concern” (CPC) after the Taliban takeover.

    The current US State Department religious freedom blacklist consists of China, Eritrea, Iran, Myanmar, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.

    “USCIRF typically recommends more countries be designated as CPCs than the State Department will designate,” Nadine Maenza, the commission’s chair, told Al Jazeera last year. “Part of the discrepancy is because USCIRF can focus on religious freedom conditions alone without needing to balance other bilateral issues.”

    I doubt any sanctions will take place while India is a vessal of the Americans.

    Sadly this will only get worse, Hindu extremists are hell bent of hurting/attacking Muslims in some sort of sick revenge due to being ruled by Muslims for centruries.

    Washington: A Hindu body in Washington has called the USCIRF report on religious freedom a work of "Hinduphobic" commission members while Muslim and Christian groups hailed the observations made in it, demanding that the US declare India as a "country of particular concern".

    The US Commission for International Religious Freedom or USCIRF report recommended to the Biden Administration to designate India, China, Pakistan, Afghanistan and 11 other nations as "countries of particular concern" in the context of religious freedom.

    The recommendations are not binding on the US government.

    HinduPACT, an initiative of the World Hindu Council of America, in a statement alleged that the USCIRF has been taken over by "Indophobic and Hinduphobic members".

    The American Muslim Institution (AMI) and its associate organisations applaud the USCIRF recommendation, saying religious freedom conditions in India "significantly worsened" in 2021.

    The Federation of Indian-American Christian Organisations and the Indian-American Muslim Council in separate statements reportedly applauded the USCIRF recommendation.

    During a special virtual congressional briefing, a day after the release of the report, USCIRF Commissioner Anurima Bhargava had alleged that Indian government officials were tolerating and engaging in religious persecution of Muslims and Christians with prolific mob violence.

    India has dismissed such allegations. Senior US government officials have told lawmakers that India has a vibrant civil society, an independent judiciary and a mature functional democracy, which has enough mechanisms to address the internal human rights concerns if any.

    HinduPACT in a statement slammed the USCIRF.

    "This year's report follows a pattern of reports that have appeared in previous years. Based on publicly available information on topics like the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and Kashmir, the USCIRF report is a copy-and-paste of talking points peddled by an agglomeration of Islamist groups working with radical Islamist group Justice for All on whose platform USCIRF commissioners appear regularly," alleged Utsav Chakrabarti, executive director of HinduPACT.

    "It is now obvious that the USCIRF has been taken over by the Indophobic and Hinduphobic members. Many of these members have attended India and Hindu bashing events. It is no surprise that their selective observations are meant to promote a political agenda and further their electoral reach in select communities," said Ajay Shah, president of the World Hindu Council of America (VHPA).

    In a statement, Koshy George, Federation of Indian-American Christian Organisations, recommended that the President and the US Administration accept the USCIRF recommendations and name India as a "country of particular concern" while it could still help protect American interests in that region for the long-term.

    "This could also go a long way in helping the Union of India remain a functioning liberal democracy with respect for all religious and linguistic minorities," he said.

    Indian-American Muslim Council executive director Rasheed Ahmed said they commend the USCIRF for "refusing to cave in to the lobbying of US-based right-wing Hindu nationalist groups and making clear that the ground reality of minorities in India is of constant harassment and violence".

    "Given the damning information presented in this report, US State Department officials must now act on the recommendations made by the USCIRF by officially designating India as a CPC and by imposing targeted sanctions upon the Indian government to hold officials responsible for encouraging hate," said Syed Afzal Ali, president of the IAMC.
