It is learnt, the activists also took to task the teacher who conducted the Arabic and Urdu classes.

Sri Rama Sene’s Zonal President Anand Shetty who spoke to reporters on the occasion said the school management should also teach Vedas and Bhagavad Gita   if it wants to teach Urdu and Arabic, as students from all religions study in the school.

Meanwhile, it has been gathered that the Sri Rama Sene activists even spoke to Melwyn Braggs, Headmaster of the School who in turn has reportedly assured to stop the Arabic and Urdu classes immediately.


The headmaster has clarified that the school taught Arabic before class hours to interesting students only and that the decision was taken after a PTA  meeting. "The school also teaches German, French and Karate to interested students" he said and added all extra-classes would be discontinued immediately.


He also stated that no complaint would be lodged as the activists did not do any harm or much trouble.

The educational institutions are is more of Politics than Training the students. You people are just making them to be rebels. Why the parents did not interfere in this matters. Are they happy with the school

They are misusing the freedom of our country. Some times we feel Hinduism is still there in India because of the activists. They struggle for the sake of Hinduism.

Did the Government give them rights to add new language to the students. Eventually they may guide them to Join Islam too.

There is nothing wrong in learning but shouldn’t make it compulsory. Activists wait for the opportunity to become heroes?
