New controversy in Karnataka after 'hijab', school forcibly teaching 'Bible' to non-Christian students

Bangalore:  On the one hand in Karnataka, where the hijab controversy over tackling religious fanaticism took place in the past few days, now there is news from a school in the same state that students are being called to school with bibles. Hindu organisations have claimed that parents of students in a school in Bengaluru are being promised to send their child to school with the Bible. The organisations allege that the school administration is forcing even non-Christian students to read the Bible.

The whole case is of Clarence High School, where parents of children reportedly studying in the school are already being taken for an undertaking that they will not object to their children coming to school with their Bibles. According to media reports, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti state spokesperson Mohan Gowda has claimed about the matter, saying that non-Christian students are being forced to read the Bible in the school. The organization says that there are also non-Christian students in the school, but the school is forcing them to read the Bible as well. After the controversy came to light, the school administration put forth its stand.  

The school says that in school, they only provide bible-based education. According to the reports, the application for admission to the school, no. 11, clearly states, "You confirm that your child will attend all classes, including morning assembly scripture classes and clubs, for their own moral and spiritual well-being and will not object to carrying the Bible." 

Recently there was a controversy about the hijab in Karnataka itself. The girl students of the college had insisted that they wanted to wear a hijab and sit in the classroom, while the administration's argument was that everyone in the school is taught equality. In such a situation, it is not advisable to sit in the class wearing a religious dress. The matter was heard in the High Court after which it was decided that every student has to follow the dress code.
