the temporary ban on religious attire like the hedge, um, and saffron scarves and schools and colleges of Karnataka applies only to students and not teachers. The Karnataka High Court has clarified it had temporarily banned religious clothes earlier this month as the controversy over Muslim students wearing hijabs in classroom spread across the state. Now teachers, along with students, were not allowed to enter schools and colleges for wearing the hijab in many parts of the state. On Wednesday, Mohammad Tahir and advocate representing one of the student petitioners stated that teachers to were being stopped at the gates of colleges. Chief Justice Ritu Raj a. WASI then clarified that the court's order applied only to suits.
