An argument broke out between parents and teachers of Rotary School in Mandya over students entering the school wearing hijab. In a video shared by news agency ANI, parents were seen asking a teacher to allow the students, saying that they would remove the hijab once inside the classroom.
However, the teacher refused and allowed students to enter only after the hijab was removed.
Meanwhile, the Karnataka government on Monday said that it will come up with Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to address any shortcomings that have surfaced during the implementation of the High Court interim order restraining students from wearing saffron stoles or hijab to classes.
Speaking to reporters, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that though classes have opened, over 10 different incidents have been reported from different districts. "There is a meeting of the education minister and others today evening. We will come up with SOPs to address any shortcomings," he said.
