Udupi: ‘Religious bias’ through question paper - SMS School refutes allegations against institution

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (TP)

Udupi, Jul 13: OSC Educational Society, Brahmavar has denied the allegation made against one of their institutions SMS English Medium School (state syllabus) on social media platform.

Speaking at a press meet held in Udupi press club on Thursday July 13, Abhilasha Hande, principal SMS English Medium CBSE School said, “In the first month, two lessons on ‘Major Developments in the World’ and ‘Beginning of the Modern Age-Renaissance’ were covered by the teacher. The questions relating to this chapter were asked in the unit test. The chapters covered topics relating to Christianity, Islam, crusades, the Mongols and renaissance. The questions which went viral on social media had covered only related to these topics as prescribed by the syllabus. The question paper was prepared without any bad intention.

“But without knowing this fact, some people have wrongly depicted the questions asked in the question paper and also falsely spread rumours in the social media that the institution is biased and using religion in education. This is far from reality and it is clear that the facts have been twisted. This has created fear among the parents of SMS English medium school (CBSE) and SMS English medium school (state syllabus),” she said.

Speaking on the institution Abhilasha said, “The institution has been providing education for a very long period of time in Brahmavar. Students from various religions and communities have pursued their education here. Students were taught what is in the syllabus without any religious bias. We have always supported a secular culture. Activities like yoga, Bharatnatyam, Yakshagana and other Indian cultural activities are also being conducted in the school. We have always worked to build fraternity among students. But some being prejudiced, have spread false news about our institution on social media that the school provides communally biased education to the students.”

The school management expressed sorrow on the allegations made against the institution and condemned the act. They have also decided to file a complaint against the culprits.

Alan Rohan Vaz, chief secretary OSC Educational Society, Alvares D'Silva, secretary SMS Degree College, Ivan Donath Suares, principal SMS PU College, and Vatsala Shetty, headmistress SMS English medium school (state syllabus) were present.

    These students don't have any other work....I clearly remember having to learn Mahabharata and ramayan, I don't see any problem in that ..... What's wrong in getting to know about Christianity and Islamic knowledge...... This knowledge won't kill you in learning , it just makes you get to know more about the other cultures... These days people are being pathetic and creating nonsense

    Is this ruckus created by students? Then, they should be thrown out of the school as they are in the school not to learn but to create problems for those who like to study and become good citizen of our country as well as the world. If it is done by others from within the school, they need to be sacked immediately. If it is external source, then, let police investigate, catch them, put them behind the bars and throw the keys.

    The school should file a police complaint against these miscreants charging them with using social media to defame the school and spread communal disharmony.
