Schools should follow dress code but HC’s word is last: Amit Shah on Hijab


Union Home Minister Amit Shah has expressed his views on the ongoing Hijab row in Karnataka. Shah said that a uniform dress code should be followed by all the schools.

The BJP leader though added that the high court’s decision will be the last word and that it should be accepted by one and all.

Giving his opinion on the hijab row, Shah said that ultimately it has to be decided whether the country will function on the basis of the Constitution or whims. This though brings into focus also the issue of Sabarimala temple.

“It is my personal belief that people of all religions should accept the school’s dress code. And the issue is now in court, and the court is conducting its hearings on the matter. Whatever it decides should be followed by all,”  Shah said in an interview with Network18.

Asked about the involvement of the Campus Front of India on the issue, the minister said, “These people may have their active involvement, but I’ll just say that their intentions will not come to fruition.”
