PANAJI: ‘All India Hindu Convention’, organized by the right-wing organization Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, on Wednesday demanded a ban on convent schools, claiming that these schools do not allow Hindu students to follow religious traditions. The convention also demanded a ban on cow slaughter in the entire country.
“Hindu students studying in convent schools are barred from following their customs like putting mehndi, wearing flowers, dupatta, bindi or kumkum. It needs to be stopped. There is a total discrimination,” a resolution passed at the convention said.
“A representation has also been made to chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar demanding ban on convent schools in Goa which have more then 70 per cent Hindu students,” said Charudatt Pingle, national convenor of HJS.
