125 schools in West Bengal have been accused of promoting ‘religious intolerance’


125 schools in Bengal have been blamed for promoting religious intolerance and served notice by the state government.

Of them, 96 don’t have a certificate from the government, said Education Minister Partha Chatterjee

He said a site of the RSS claims the organization is running 300 schools in the state. 125 of these were reportedly listed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

“This is the first phase of the investigation. We are identifying those schools and if they are instructing on the lines of religious teachings, they will be stopped,” said the minister.

The schools served notice are reportedly run by private trusts that the ruling Trinamool Congress alleges are connected to the RSS or Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological mentor of the BJP.
