India’s top court judges split on the hijab in classrooms – BBC News

India’s top court has failed to deliver a verdict on whether Muslim students can wear the hijab in schools and colleges, with two judges expressing opposing views.

The verdict was expected to cap a 10-month-long polarising debate in India, but Thursday’s development means the case is now being referred to the Chief Justice of India.

The row over the hijab began at the start of the year in the southern state of Karnataka when a government college in Udupi district barred six Muslim girls from wearing the hijab in class.
