New Delhi :
The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the petitioners in the Karnataka hijab ban controversy to conclude their arguments within an hour yesterday, saying he was losing his patience. During the hearing of the matter on the ninth day, the top court said that it will give only one hour to the lawyers of the petitioners to conclude their arguments on Thursday. A bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia told senior advocate Huzefa Ahmadi, appearing for one of the petitioners, “We will give one hour’s time to all of you. You put an end to it. Now, this is an ‘overdose’ of hearing.
The bench said that many lawyers have already presented their arguments before it. It said, “We are losing our patience.” Praising the bench, Ahmadi said, “I must say that you (the bench) have listened to us very patiently.” I said, “Do you think we have any other option?” Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and Karnataka Advocate General Prabhuling K. Navadgi and Additional Solicitor General KM Natraj argued for the state government, while senior advocates Dushyant Dave and Salman Khurshid represented the Muslim petitioners.
