Karnataka, a state in India, schools asking muslim women to remove hijab before entering the school premises https://thewire.in/women/staff-students-asked-to-remove-hijab-at-gates-as-karnataka-schools-reopen, humiliating muslim women in public. This is against the freedom of religion and basic human rights.
The Hindu nationalist government is the ruling party in Karnataka which is very hostile to human rights, non-hindus , dissenters, activists.
The issue is not so much that there should be zero regulation on the dress code, yet India is a secular and free country too. But as a society we need to draw a line, somewhere between shirt-pant and nudity.
And the government, unfortunately is not a forum of the society nowadays. It should be the judiciary, that decides. As such various opposing views can be laid during the discussion.
Banning things deliberately does nothing but reduce harmony in society.
