Karnataka Minister comments to allow Ganesha festival in school draws flak
A section of the Muslim community has criticized Karnataka Education Minister B C Nagesh’s remarks about allowing Ganesha Chathurthi celebrations in state schools.
“There is the freedom to celebrate the Ganesha festival in schools. We will not say no to those who want to do it (celebrate) for the first time. This is only a system to unite society. They can take our permission for it,” the minister said according to news agency PTI.
SDPI District Working Committee member, Umar Farukh targeted the government on the comments of the minister. “When Hijab was not allowed inside educational institutions, why a Hindu festival is being permitted? Religion is a personal issue,” he said. When the Education Minister is allowing religious event of a particular community, then he is duty-bound to allow others too,” he said.
