    Why is the Supreme Court sleeping over the appeal? The decision to let the women take off their hijab in the rest room and then attend classes is a fair solution. If the majority of Muslim women have no objection, are they Muslim heathens and those who wear hijab, true followers? Until the SC wakes up and decides, this hijab agitation will not cease.
