The three-judge bench has been constituted after Justice Krishna S Dixit referred the hijab case to the larger bench, while refusing to grant an interim relief to the petitioners, who are pleading for attending the classes wearing hijabs.

Since the court has not given any interim relief to the petitioners, Karnataka Education Minister said that the dress code will remain intact on college campuses as mentioned in the earlier circular.

All students should obey the dress code and not wear hijabs and saffron scarves on college campuses till the high court gives its verdict on the matter, he said. Mandya MP Sumalatha Ambareesh said one can wear a bikini on a beach or a pool, but not in schools.

There is a code everywhere and it has to be followed, she said. Actress Hema Malini said one can wear whatver one wants outside the school, but not in schools. Every school has a uniform and that should be respected, she added.

The local administration has prohibited gatherings, agitations or protest of any type within the area of 200-meter radius from the gate(s) of schools, PU colleges, degree colleges or other similar educational institutions in Bengaluru city.
