Hijab vs saffron protest erupts outside Karnataka college ahead of HC hearing, students chant Jai Shri Ram

A protest has erupted between students wearing saffron shawls and Hijab outside a college in Karnataka ahead of the high court hearing. The students were heard chanting Jai Shri Ram slogans. A student said, “They have been banned from wearing hijab but some of them came to the classroom hijab. If they are wearing hijab, we will also wear saffron wearing shawls.” Another student in a hijab said, “We have been wearing this since childhood, how can they ask us to remove it now?”

On January 1, six Muslim students of a government Pre-University college in Karnataka’s Udupi were barred from attending classes wearing a hijab. The college management cited a new uniform policy behind the reason for the ban. The issue has now spilled over to other government colleges in Udupi with several students protesting against a ban on hijab.
