Next Monday, the SC will hear petitions challenging the Karnataka HC order upholding the hijab ban.
The petitions opposing the judgement will be heard by the Supreme Court on September 5 after the court issued a notice on a Monday request for a stay of the Karnataka High Court's upholding of the hijab ban.
The petitioners have circulated a letter of adjournment, the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta informed a bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia during the hearing.
In response to a vehement protest, the court declared, "This is not acceptable to us. When the matter is listed, you desire an adjournment since you requested an urgent listing. Shopping in the forums is not permitted.
As an early hearing was requested, the top court stated that it will not entertain a plea for an adjournment and sent a notice to the Karnataka government regarding the plea.
The Karnataka High Court's ruling that wearing the hijab is not a component of the fundamental religious practise that can be protected under Article 25 of the Constitution has been challenged in a number of applications filed with the Supreme Court.
A group of Muslim students from the Government Pre-University Girls College in Udupi petitioned the high court to be allowed to wear the hijab in class, but it was dismissed.
