The USA has also said that the Hijab ban is a stigma on religious freedom.

Voices are being raised in the world against the ban on hijab in Indian educational institutions. The United States has said that banning the hijab violates religious freedom.

Rashid Hussain, a senior official with the US Agency for Religious Freedom, said in a statement that the ban on wearing the veil in educational institutions in the Indian state of Karnataka was a violation of religious freedom.
