Karnataka hijab row LIVE Updates: If hijab becomes religious sanction, women will be obligated to wear it, says AG

The Karnataka High Court will resume Day 8 of hearing the hijab row case soon. Yesterday, Advocate General Prabhuling Navadgi, representing the government, argued that hijab could either be essential to religion or optional for followers.

Quoting the Sabiramala case, advocate Navadgi argued that if a practice WAS optional, it cannot be said to be ‘essential’ to a religion. He added that it had to be shown that wearing the hijab was essential to Islam.
