Forcing school children to sing Hindu hymns unwarranted: CPI (M)

Srinagar, Sep 20: Expressing serious concern over the reports of school children forced to sing Hindu hymns, CPI (M) Secretary Ghulam Nabi Malik Tuesday said that it has exposed the BJP government’s agenda of saffornisation of education.

A video is making rounds on social media, in which school staff is seen asking students in a class to sing the famous hymn ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ in a government school of Kulgam area.

Malik in a statement said that the rituals and beliefs of a particular caste or faith cannot be imposed on the education system of a secular nation. “Such activities can prove detrimental to harmonious educational atmosphere.”
