The hijab row controversy started off with the ban on the entry of 6 Muslim girls into the college wearing a hijab.
After the signing of the petition, the issue went to the high court which gave a verdict of banning the hijab in educational institutions. This news again got the attention of many on social media.
In between this, a video of CJI Karnataka goes out viral claiming it to be of the High Court where the two judges stripped the lawyers defending petitioners in hijab controversy.
