The second mass protest against the 2010 ban on wearing the hijab to school took place before the Ministry of Education in Baku on 5 October 2012. (5 October is celebrated as the Day of Teachers in Azerbaijan and was selected symbolically to draw attention to the situation.)

Police efforts to disperse the peaceful action through force led to confrontations. Consequently, the number of detainees exceeded that of those arrested on 6 May 2011. Both protesters and police employees sustained physical injuries. All persons arrested for attending the protest are included in this list.
