Students allowed to wear Hijab while writing exam: Karnataka Education Minister
He clarified that the examinees can write exams by wearing the clothes they want
In a progress review meeting held under the leadership of Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and State Education Minister MC Sudhakar, it was decided that the students will be allowed to wear a Hijab while writing the exams.
He clarified that the examinees can write exams by wearing the clothes they want.
The Hijab row erupted in January 2022 when the Government PU College in Udupi allegedly barred six girls wearing the hijab from entering.
Following this, the girls protested outside the college over being denied entry.
After this, boys from several colleges in Udupi started attending classes wearing saffron scarves.
This protest spread to other parts of the state as well leading to protests and agitations in several places in Karnataka.
