The hijab-clad girls and women of Karnataka are knocking at the doors of the apex court once again, as the Supreme Court takes up the case of the hijab ban.

The hearing in the hijab plea comes on the heels of the Supreme Court hearing a petition challenging the premature release of 11 convicts sentenced to life for gangrape and murder in the case of Bilkis Bano and her family.

At the time, Justice Rastogi of the top court had reportedly asked, "Merely because the act was horrific, is that sufficient to say remission is wrong?"

Let's get back from that controversial comment to the hijab-clad women though - why are they at the SC again?

Well...

Merely their right to education, right to freely practise their religion, and right to equality. Merely that.
