Amidst Hijab controversy, Hijabi girl Secures 2nd Rank in Karnataka PU Examinations

A Muslim hijab-wearing student earned the second rank in the Pre-University (PU) Examinations in Karnataka, a state where girls are restricted from wearing a religious attire to educational institutions.

Ilham, a student of St Aloysius School, Mangalore, secured 597 marks out of 600, in the Science stream and wishes to pursue a career in clinical psychology. Anisha Mallya, from the same college, came second in the commerce stream by securing 595 marks.
