Court has no authority to give an opinion on faith: Indian Union Muslim League

The Indian Union Muslim League, an ally of Congress, on Sunday said the Supreme Court stand on Dress code for All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) by CBSE was wrong.

On Friday, the Supreme Court refuses to allow the aspirants of the AIPMT to wear hijab/headscarf saying “your faith won’t disappear if you appear for the exam without a scarf.”

IUML national secretary E T Muhammed Basheer who is also a Member of Parliament from Kerala blasted the court for its observations.

Talking to reporters in Kozhikode, Basheer said that the judgement was against religious faith.Basheer said “the issue entails matter of faith. The court has no right to interfere in matters of faith.

Last week, two Muslim girls had obtained an order from the Kerala High Court to sit for the exam wearing hijab, but SC denied the permission.

On Saturday, when the exam was held, a Catholic nun not allowed to write exam when she refuses to remove her veil for mandatory checking before entering into the exam hall.

Reacting to the IUML statement , BJP state president V Muraleedharan said the IUML is challenging the Supreme Court and the Indian Constitution. “If they are living in the country, they should follow the Supreme Court order. Otherwise, they should quit the citizenship,” said Muraleedharan.
