“If a prayer in Sanskrit is akin to propagating Hindu religion, then is a prayer in English propagating Christianity,” asked a senior official at the ministry of human resource development on Wednesday.
This was in reaction to a petition in the SC claiming that all students of Kendriya Vidyalayas irrespective of their faith and belief, have to compulsorily recite a prayer based on the Hindu religion at the morning assembly.
