Losing Patience: SC asks lawyers to conclude arguments over hijab row

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday told the counsel appearing for petitioners in the hijab ban in Karntaka to conclude their arguments in just one hour on Thursday.

The top court, which heard submissions in the matter for the ninth day, said "we are losing our patience".

"We will give one hour time to all of you. You finish that. Now, it is an overdose of hearing," a bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and Sudhanshu Dhulia told senior advocate Huzefa Ahmadi.

Mr Ahmadi has argued for one of the petitioners.

The bench said several lawyers have already put forth their arguments before it. "We are losing our patience," it said.

"I must say, your lordships have heard us with inexhaustible patience," Mr Ahmadi acknowledged in appreciation.

"Do you think we have any other choice?" the bench asked on a lighter note.

Observing that it would give an hour's time on Thursday, the bench said rebuttal cannot go beyond that.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, Karnataka's Advocate General Prabhuling K Navadgi and Additional Solicitor General K M Nataraj argued on behalf of the state, while senior lawyers Dushyant Dave and Salman Khurshid presented views of the Muslim petitioners.PTI with edits
