CPIML Statement on Karnataka HC Hijab Judgment

The CPIML expresses deep concern at today's Karnataka High Court’s judgment regarding the issue of access to educational institutions for hijab-wearing girls and women.

The judgment fails to protect the right to education of hijab-wearing girls and women from arbitrary and discriminatory order of the State Government, and, such rules made by school and college authorities in Karnataka under pressure from Hindu-supremacist groups.
