For citing ‘Jai Sri ram’ minor Christian student abused in Sonitpur

Guwahati: The Kutumba Surakshya Parishad, a Hindu organization, has demanded action against a Christian missionary school in Assam for allegedly abusing a 10-year-old student for chanting “Jai Sri Ram” inside the classroom.
The incident reportedly took place on February 5 at Calvary English School in Khelmati near Balipara in Sonitpur district of Assam.
According to reports, a minor student of Class IV of the school was physically assaulted by the class teacher and then the headmaster after the student chanted “Jai Sri Ram” in the classroom.
The minor student later informed the family who sought an explanation of the incident from the school authority.

The situation was brought under control by a team from Chariduar police station and the district elementary education officer (DEEO), who asked the management of the school not to repeat such incidents in further.

“It is a shocking incident. The school authority has violated the child right and human right under Article 51(A) of the Constitution of India,” Kutumba Surakshya Parishad president Satya Ranjan Borah said in a letter submitted to Assam education minister Ranoj Pegu here on Thursday.

“This is a painful and gross violation of Article 51 AC) of the Constitution of India,” Borah said in the letter.

The Hindu organization also asked the Father-Sisters of Christian Missionaries to wear a normal dress instead of the dress or their religious costume in school or educational institutions.
