He said that the verdict of the Karnataka High Court is completely unstable and illegal. The decision of the High Court is a violation of sections 14, 19, 21 and 25. The High Court made a mistake in testing the validity of wearing hijab in public places on the test of compulsory religious tradition.

On behalf of the Karnataka government, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said that no Muslim girl was wearing hijab before 2021. Nor did any such question arise. It would be wrong to say that the government has only banned hijab, people from other communities have also been prevented from wearing saffron swabs.

Mehta had said that in 2022, the Popular Front of India started a campaign to wear hijab on social media. Such messages were spread on social media. It was not the decision of children to wear hijab. The children were working accordingly as they were explained.

In response to the turban of Sikhs in support of the arguments of pro -hijab lawyers, Mehta said that the turban and tough in the Sikhs’ case is their essential religious tradition. You cannot imagine any Sikh without them in any corner of the world.

Mehta tried to prove this through his arguments, Hijab is not an essential religious tradition of Islam. He had said that the petitioners could not make any argument to prove that Hijab has been a part of Islam religion or it is very important to wear it in this religion. Mehta also mentioned the women’s fight against hijab in Iran. He said that in many Islamic countries, women are fighting against the hijab, such as in Iran. Therefore, my plea is not a compulsory religious tradition of Islam.
