Karnataka: After the Hijab Row in Karnataka, which caused a stir in the entire nation, now the controversy over the Bible has started. Bangalore's Clarence High School management has issued a decree saying that it is necessary for children to bring Bibles to school. Hindu organizations have started protesting against this decision of the school.
According to the report, the Clarence High School administration in Bangalore has taken an undertaking from the parents of the students on an application form that they will not object to bringing their children to Bible School. Hindu organizations have termed this decision of the school as a violation of the Education Act.
Hindu Janajagruti Samiti's state spokesperson Mohan Gowda claimed that the school was forcing non-Christian students to read the Bible. Right-wing groups have claimed that there are also non-Christian students in the schools who are forced to read the Bible. However, the school has defended its move.
