AIPMT: Supreme Court refuses to allow hijab in test

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to allow hijab or any other head gear in the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT ), stating faith would not disappear if it is not worn on one particular day. 

A bench led by Chief Justice H L Dattu called it a “small issue” and upheld the CBSE notification that prohibited wearing hijab. The court pointed out that the AIPMT exam was being re-conducted because the top court had to scrap it earlier owing to irregularities. “Examiners cannot conduct inquiry into everyone’s faith. They have to do it appropriately this time,” it added.
