No.This ban is only inside classrooms. They can wear whatever they want outside. No restrictions on it.
The headpiece, as you call it, the turban, has never been ruled an essential practice of the Sikh religion. The five K's have been. The turban is a convenience, and even the turban is being replaced with protective helmets progressively.As long as Sikhs are allowed their headpiece, any argument an Indian makes falls flat. It's targeted at one religion, hence discrimination.
Court is wrong. So are schools & colleges.No it's not, the court has ruled the same. In fact hijab, burkha is fairly new phenomenon. When we use to go to school hardly anybody, in fact zero girls used to wear hijab/burkha and there were a ton of Muslim and Muslim girls in my locality. As stated earlier there would be many maulvis who would say not hijab but burkha is essential practice, now you don't expect private convent school to allow girls wear burkha to school.
Court is wrong. So are schools & colleges.
It's none of their business if a Muslim female wants to wear a Burkha. They are paying fees to attend. Education is not for free.
Unfair and discriminatory rules need not be followed.It's absolutely their business, they are caretakers of the institution and it's their job to decide the rules for student in the institution not the other way around. In fact if these students would not have been muslims they would have been rusticated long back for indiscipline.
Unfair and discriminatory rules need not be followed.
Even in the US, schools and colleges have problem with hijabs. But in India, Muslims are being targeted.
Thank you Modi Chai wala . He is doing what the ISI is unable to do in 70+ years. Create a communal divide wait for the right time to arm the Muslims of India against the Hindutvas. It's going that way and I am loving it.New Delhi:
A hijab is not an essential religious practice, the Karnataka High Court said today in a huge setback to students who had challenged a ban on wearing the hijab in class. Five petitions had challenged the ban in court.
Ahead of the order, the state government banned large gatherings for a week in state capital Bengaluru "to maintain public peace and order". Mangalore too banned large gatherings from March 15 to 19. Schools and colleges are closed in Udupi today.
The Karnataka High Court had temporarily banned religious clothes, including Hijab and saffron scarves, last month as the controversy snowballed into protests and a face-off between different sections of students.

Such rules violate Right to freedom of religion of the Indian constitution.The rules are uniform for all. Pupil are free to take admission in schools/colleges that permit hijab/burkha or where it is part of uniform.
The turban is emphatically not an essential practice of the Sikh religion.So in Sikhism the turban was originally a cultural garment, not part of Guru Nanak's teachings, and only in 1699 - 160 years after the death of Guru Nanak - was the turban made part of the faith to hold the hair grown also as part of the faith. But as per the teachings of Sikhism I don't think one stops being a follower of Nanak's teachings if one doesn't wear a turban
That is a silly thing to say.The intervene of Indian court into Islamic faith should be brought to OIC meeting. This is a serious matter that should have a respond from Muslim world.
They have ruled in accordance with what they are supposed to do, that is, in this case, decide if the hijab is an essential religious practice or not, and whether or not this practice should prevail or the uniform stipulation of a private institution should prevail.It's the latest in a long line of anti Muslim actions, whilst at the same time trying to force every kind of weird hindu craziness on everyone
Yes, and no.What to wear and not is a basic human right.
