AIPMT 2015: Supreme Court’s Rejection on allowing headscarves inside AIPMT exam hall


As per the strictness guiding the AIPMT examination, the rules are becoming more and more firm and Supreme Court is leaving no stones unturned to maintain the security level during the exam conduction.

Supreme Court of India reluctantly rejected to entertain any kind of pleas diverted by Islamic organizations, which specifies that Muslim girl students must be permitted to wear headscarves during CBSE's All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) exam, as it would maintain the dignity of Islamic ancestry.

The court bench was directed by Chief Justice HL Dattu, and his verdict stated direct rejection to the appeal forwarded by Students Islamic Organization of India. He quoted, "If you appear in an examination without a scarf, your faith will not disappear."

The court narrated the appeal as "nothing more but an ego", and stated that the headscarves can be worn after the exam gets over. It maintained its words, saying that a piece of cloth cannot judge or define Faith.

Supreme Court has refused to mess or hamper with the dress code recommended by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for AIPMT 2015 exam, and if necessary, headscarves and full sleeve garments will have to be removed for examination, for which petitioners shall have to cooperate with the supervisors.
