In the Bijoe Emmanuel case, the court granted protection to three children of the Jehovah’s Witness sect who did not join in singing the national anthem at their school.
New Delhi, Oct 14: The Supreme Court on Thursday delivered a split verdict in the hijab ban case. While Justice Hemant Gupta dismissed the appeals challenging the ban, Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia allowed them.
While allowing the appeals, Justice Dhulia referred to the Bijoe Emmanuel case saying that the issue is covered squarely in this judgment. “It is ultimately a matter of choice. Nothing more, nothing less. I have also held the ratio laid down by the Supreme Court in the case of Bijoe Emmanuel squarely covers the issue,” Justice Dhulia said.
