HJS’s strong agitation against exploitation of Hindu students by Missionary schools

Mumbai:Shri. Ramesh Shinde, the Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti for the State of Maharashtra said in a Press Conference that HJS has started a strong agitation against Christian Missionary schools for psychological exploitation of Hindu students. The Press Conference was held at the Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh. Shri. Shinde said that the number of schools run by Christian missionaries is increasing. Even in interiors of the State, under the pretext of imparting education, missionaries are spreading Christianity. Hindu students are thus deprived of getting knowledge about Hindu religion.

Further, schools are extorting money under the guise of discipline and progressive training. One of the parents enrolled his ward in another school to avoid persecution of his ward. Some of the parents have lodged complaints with HJS about St. Mary’s and St. Joseph’s school at Panvel and Ryan International School at Kharghar. The schools are indulging in unfair and illegal practices and generating hatred against Hindu religion. This jeopardizes Hindus’ right of freedom to follow any religion conferred by Indian Constitution. A protest march was taken out on St. Mary’s School at Sukapur in Panvel and the management was given a representation to stop all unfair practices. Many organizations and political parties had joined the march. HJS has appealed to all harassed parents to be brave and come forward to register their complaints.

A delegation of HJS proposes to meet the State Minister for Education with all complaints received from parents and demand necessary action against the concerned people. A demand will also be made for carrying out detailed enquiry of all such schools run by missionary trusts, their source of funding etc. An appeal was also made to Hindus to send their children to such schools where they get training on Hindu culture. Mrs. Varsha Thakar, retired Principal and a member of HJS said that on one hand, the Government is putting a ban on Hindu schools to impart training on Hindu religion and on the other hand, missionary schools are forcing Hindu students to learn and follow Christianity.
