On the other hand, Karnataka High Court has appealed to students for not wearing a religious dress until the verdict on the Hijab Row. A terrifying video over social media is going viral and people are claiming its involvement with Hijab Ban. Two-three women are standing on the top of the water tank whereas one lady among them tried to burn Hijab first and accidentally got herself burned in the fire depicts the video.
Users on Facebook and Twitter are captioning that ladies did everything to show their support in the Hijab protest.

After cross-checking the story behind the video. We found the video was highly misled by the users on social media. The video is 10 years old and the incident took place in Kapurthala District of Punjab. Few teachers went on the top of the water tank of Kapurthala District Hospital and demanded to meet the education minister of Punjab, Upinderjit Kaur. Unfortunately, the minister didn’t show up and in return two of them burned themselves. The fiery outburst was covered by Sikh Revolution on YouTube. Hence proving the claim is misleading.
