All schools and colleges in Karnataka have been declared closed due to hijab debate. State Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai made the announcement in a tweet. Local media in India quoted the NDTV minister’s tweet as saying that all schools and colleges in the state would be closed for the next three days to maintain peace and security.

In a tweet, the minister called for peace and protection of the people of Karnataka, including all students, teachers and the school management committee. He directed to close all schools and colleges for the next three days and sought the cooperation of all.

Recently, in a college in Karnataka, India, some female students were stopped at the college gate for wearing hijab. A video of the incident went viral on social media. It was seen that the college students were begging the principal in Udupur district of Kundapur coastal area of ​​Karnataka. They urged the principal to allow them to wear hijab after class.

A month before the incident, a controversy erupted at the PU Girls’ College in Udupur over wearing the first hijab. A student wearing hijab and headscarf has approached the High Court to take part in the classroom. The Karnataka state government has said that according to the state’s education policy, all students (prescribed by the school for students) must come to the classroom in the same attire. Because they are all members of the same family.

However, the government has also informed that the educational institutions will decide how the students will dress. On Tuesday, the state high court may issue directions on the hijab.
