Bengaluru: Following the controversy over speculations about ban on hijab, Karnataka Examination Authority today clarified on its website that hijab is not banned in examinations. All candidates should reach the examination center two hours before the scheduled time.
Owaisi also raised questions
Earlier, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi alleged “banning of hijab” during examinations in Karnataka and repeal of the ban imposed by the previous Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state. On Tuesday, the Congress government was criticized for not taking steps to do so. He had said that “Karnataka’s Congress government has banned hijab in examinations.” It has also not repealed the hijab ban of the previous BJP government.
KEA gave clarification on heating up politics
His statement came after the Karnataka Examination Authority issued the dress code for the recruitment examinations of various boards and corporations held on November 18 and 19 in the state. The examination board has said that wearing a cap or any other clothing on the head is prohibited to prevent the use of ‘Bluetooth’ devices in the examination hall. Attacking Telangana Congress President A Revanth Reddy, Owaisi said, “Telangana Congress chief ‘RSS’ Anna wants to implement ‘Karnataka model’ in Telangana.” This is why he insults Sherwani. AIMIM leaders have been targeting Reddy over his alleged links with the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh). After this this clarification was issued by KEA. (input-agency)
