Srinagar: Muslim associations said that schools in Kashmir region should not allow religious prayer and suryanamaskar. The condition has been put forward by the Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema, an association of Islamic religious education before the central government. They approached both the government and the education department alleging that the Muslim religious sentiment is being hurt.
It is said that the Muslim students are chanting the Hindu religious hymns while conducting morning prayers and yoga classes in schools. The MMU, under the leadership of the chief priest of Jamia Masjid and the chairman of Hurriyat, said that such things cannot be permitted at the schools in Kashmir region.
The incident of children in a school situated at the southern region of Kashmir chanting the song ‘Raghupathi Raghava Raaja Ram‘ had provoked the Muslim associations. Following this they have come up with the demand to stop doing such practices that have no connection with the Islamic religion. They also warned the parents to stop sending their children to school if the institutions are not working according to the Islamic religious principles.
