Parents of six Muslim girl file complaint as children’s Personal info exposed on social media

Students in Hijab protesting

Six Muslim girl students’ parents in Karnataka have filed a police report alleging that their children’s personal information is being exposed on social media. This comes amid the state’s Udupi district’s rising Hijab row, in which the girls were among the demonstrators.

The news: The parents filed a complaint with Superintendent of Police N Vishnuvardhan of the Udupi district. They are seeking stern penalties against the perpetrators, fearful that the information would be used to intimidate the girls.

  • Personal information, including phone numbers, has been shared in the public domain, according to the accusations.
  • Karnataka’s state government issued an order on February 5 enforcing a dress code in all schools and institutions, with a restriction on clothing that “disturbs equity, integrity, or public law and order.” Following the notification, some girls wearing the hijab, a Muslim head covering, refused to enter the building, resulting in a confrontation between students and the college management.
  • They were ultimately allowed to join the institution on February 7, but they had to sit in different courses.
  • Hearing the ‘hijab’ issue on February 10, a three-judge panel of the Karnataka High Court advised students not to insist on wearing any cloth on campuses of educational institutions that could incite people until the matter was settled.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has taken up the case, saying on Friday that it will “defend the fundamental rights of every person” and will consider it at a “suitable moment.” Further hearing in the matter will be on Monday, February 14.
