Karnataka Civil Service Exam: Girl students who came to appear for the Karnataka Civil Services Examination were asked to remove their mangalsutra. At the same time, permission was given to take the exam wearing hijab. This incident has created a new controversy. According to media reports, the State Public Service Commission, which conducted the examination, had also asked the girl students to remove other jewelery including earrings, chains and toe rings.
Girl students asked to remove Mangalsutra
In fact, one of the female students who was asked to remove her mangalsutra said that the officials also checked women wearing hijab, but allowed them inside. The student further said that in Hindu culture there is no need to remove the mangalsutra, but it can be removed if needed. I took off my mangalsutra and toe ring and went inside. Just as they checked the hijab and let them in, they should have checked us too and let us in.
BJP raised questions
After making the girl students remove the Mangalsutra in the Karnataka Civil Services Examination, now politics has also started. Bharatiya Janata Party has accused the state government of discrimination. BJP MLA Basanagouda Yatnal questioned, saying that this step was only for Hindus. Muslim girl students were allowed inside wearing hijab and girl students wearing mangalsutra were not allowed to enter the examination hall.
A candidate was caught cheating
According to media reports, the administration has taken strict action to prevent cheating during the exam. In fact, on November 4, during the Karnataka Common Entrance Examination, a candidate and his brother were arrested for cheating. Both were identified as Trimurti and Ambarish. Giving information about the case, the police had said that Trimurti, a resident of Sona village of Afzalpur taluk, was caught red-handed while wearing a Bluetooth device. Her brother, who was sitting in a car outside the examination centre, was sending her answers through the device.
