Allahabad school management bans National Anthem in school!M.A. Convent School, Allahabad imposed a ban on singing National Anthem on the coming Independence Day because the management committee members thought the phrase 'Bharat Bhagya Vidhata' against the ethos of their religion. Thanks to the Principal Ritu Tripathi and seven other teachers, the matter came in public domain. The school management committee also intimated that the National Anthem is not being sung in the school for last twelve years.
Due to increasing public protest, the State Govt. has been forced to take action against the management committee of the unrecognised school.
I salute the Principal and teachers of the school for protesting against the unhealthy trend initiated by the seditious school management.
The people of Allahabad should also thank their stars for averting the possibility of enjoying(?) 'Pak sar zamin saad baad' on 14th August, at least for the time being!
