Chamarajanagara: Hindu Jagarana Vedike (HJV) workers alleged that a private school indulged in conversion. The Hindu Jagarana Vedike has expressed outrage against this.
A petition has been submitted to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai through Tahasildar against the private school in Gundlupete Town of Chamarajanagara District, alleging that it is inciting Hindus to convert intro Christianity. Also, the activists of the organisation have also sent a petition to the Chief Minister and the Education Minister demanding the cancellation of the permission to run the school.
Since the school was also opened on the day of Sankranti festival and there was an attempt to convert people without putting portraits of national leaders in the school, it seems that the school, which is a festival day, does not give leave to the children here, but all the students are called to the class, they alleged. This issue became known to the Hindu Jagarana Forum and the Dalita Sangharsha Samiti.
Condemning this decision of the school, the activists of the organisations visited the school and questioned why the school management did not give leave to the children and held classes on the holiday.
On this occasion, Dalit leader Muthanna alleged that the school authorities kept National Leader Dr. Ambedkar’s portrait in a cupboard.
The school teacher clarified that the children were called on Sunday for dance practice in connection with the school anniversary. In the meantime, District Education Officer S. C. Shivamurthy clarified that the school was open on a holiday, and no permission was obtained for holding classes on a holiday.
A complaint has been submitted to BEO and Tahasildar in this regard.
