MINORITIES PROTEST YOGA IN SCHOOLS

Inside India

Minority communities are skeptical over Madhya Pradesh chief minister’s announcement that yoga would be included in the schools of the state. Calling it increasing saffronisation of the educational system, some have even threatened to move the apex court if the order is implemented. President of Federation MP Minority Educational Institutions and former chairman State Minority Commission, Ibrahim Qureshi said, “If yoga is taught like sports such as kabaddi, etc then it is fine but if it is accompanied by Vedic chants, as is generally the case, then it is objectionable as it violates Article 28 of the Constitution. “He also questioned the credibility of Baba Ramdev, who has written these books. Meanwhile, state coordinator, MP Federation of Christian Educational Institutions (MPFCEI), Fr Anand Muttungal said that while the decision to include yoga in schools is being welcomed as it is an exercise, he maintained that surya namaskar and teachings of Gita should be abolished from the schools.
