 Campus Front of IndiaMangalore : Campus Front of India condemns unconstitutional move by the Karnataka state government to teach Bhagavad Gita to students in government run schools and the notification issued by the education department is highly contradictory to the policy of the Indian Constitution said Haidar Habeeb, district president of CFI.
 Campus Front of IndiaAddressing the protestors in front of DC Office on July 21, Thursday, he said that the state government must immediately withdraw the teaching of Bhagavad Gita Abhiyan in schools across the state.
State CFI secretary Imran said that the decision of the government is a part of conspiracy to saffronize the educational system of the state and it causes the sprout of communal sentiments in the minds of the students. Moreover, teaching a scripture of particular religion in educational institutions is fully unconstitutional. It may cause unrest if other religious people insist to teach their religious scriptures in schools.
He also said that, it is unfortunate to see that our state has been ruled by the leaders like Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri who stated those opposed to teaching Bhagavad Gita in schools to leave the country during the press meet seems to be inanity. Hence we demand strict action against Mr. Kageri’s based on his immoral and impudent statement, which is against the policy of Indian constitution.
Akbar Ali, district general secretary of SFI and others were present.
