AMU students protest in solidarity with Muslim girl senior secondary students in classes who were being kept out or segregated due to wearing hijabs, even as the Karnataka HC which was hearing the matter referred it to a "higher bench".

The students of AMU stood up for the “rights of an individual to wear hijab.” Though the High Court gave their hearing some of the protests also turned violent in Karnataka as incidents of stone pelting and lathi-charge were reported in the state at Pre-University Colleges. Not only this the right wing 'counter protestors' turned up in saffron flags and scarves, which replaced tricolour flags during the protests.
