Hijab: SC asks counsels to wrap up arguments
One-liner: The SC on Wednesday asked the counsel appearing for the petitioners in the Karnataka hijab ban controversy to wrap up their rebuttal arguments within an hour today.
Nine days of hearing: The apex court, which heard submissions in the matter for the ninth day, said it would give just one hour to the lawyers for the petitioners to conclude their arguments today.
What the bench said: "Several lawyers have already put forth their arguments. We are losing our patience," the bench said.
Views of both sides presented: SG Tushar Mehta, Karnataka's AG Prabhuling K Navadgi and ASG K M Nataraj have argued on behalf of the state, while senior lawyers Dushyant Dave and Salman Khurshid have presented views of the Muslim petitioners.
