Karnataka: Girls might not be allowed to wear hijab for II PU exams | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Hijab wearing girls might not be allowed to write II PUC exam beginning later this month. The education department on Thursday issued an order that the II PUC examinees must wear the prescribed uniform and if there is no uniform prescribed, they must wear dresses that safeguard equality and integrity and maintain the public order.
Though it did not say that hijab is banned in as many words, the circular signed by Padmini S N, under secretary, education department (PU), referred to the February 5, 2022 order on uniform in schools and PU colleges and the high court upholding the same in its order on March 15, 2022.
The government has been extensively citing the circular and the high court order while not allowing students wearing hijab in schools and colleges.
The II PU exams are scheduled from April 22 to May 18.
