The CBSE has challenged the Kerala High Court order granting permission to Muslim girls to wear the Hijab, a customary religious dress for All India Pre-Medical Test-2016. In an appeal filed before the division bench of the High Court yesterday, the CBSE said, the single bench had ignored the likelihood of millions of students being affected by its direction, particularly in view of the fact that arrangements for the conduct of examination have been completed. 
It contended that since the judgment creates necessity for additional women invigilators, the CBSE would find conduct of the examination with such additional women invigilators trained to honour religious sentiments, extremely cumbersome, unmanageable and unworkable.
In his April 26th order, Justice Muhammed Mushtaq had permitted all candidates who, based on the religious practice, want to wear headscarf and full-sleeved length dress to appear for the examination but on condition that they be present at the hall half an hour before the exam for frisking, if necessary, by women invigilators. 
The bench is expected to consider the case today.
