A magisterial inquiry has been ordered to look into how the school was allowed to run for two decades without any clearance from authorities and the allegation against the manager, they said.
An FIR was filed by the education department in the matter which came to light when eight of the school’s teachers, including its principal, resigned last week after they were denied permission to hold recital of the national anthem during the upcoming Independence Day celebrations.
The Principal clarified that it is case of mis understanding of anthem. He took the line ”Bharat Bhagya Vidhata” as India controls/manages the luck of people which is not allowed as per Islam.
Though the Supreme Court has taken lenient view for not singing National anthem for religious reasons in Jehovas witness community in famous ”National Anthem Case”.
