The Hijab row, which was sparked in a college in Karnataka’s Udupi a few days ago, has now become a national issue. On Tuesday, several Opposition parties staged a walkout over the issue in Parliament.
As reported by ANI, the Congress, DMK, IUML, the two Communist parties (CPM and CPI), VCK, MDMK, and JMM are the parties that have walked out in protest against the row. It seems they allege religious discrimination against minority students.
Meanwhile, Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai has declared holidays for three days for all high schools and colleges over the Hijab row. “I appeal to all the students, teachers, and management of schools and colleges as well as people of Karnataka to maintain peace and harmony. I have ordered the closure of all high schools and colleges for the next three days,” the CM said.
