Prayagraj: An FIR has been lodged against the principal of a private school in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj for asking students to make a 20-second video wishing ‘Happy Eid’ on the festival and dressing up in a certain manner.

Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Lal Mani Tiwari, in his complaint filed at Kydganj police station on Wednesday, alleged that Dr Bushra Mustafa, principal of Jhunsi’s Nyaya Nagar Public School, had sent a message to the students on May 2, asking the boys to wear kurta and cap and girls to wear salwar-kurta and dupatta the next day for the video, news agency PTI reported.

“Children are innocent, and talking about giving more marks for wearing Eid outfits and making videos is an attempt to get them attracted towards a particular religion. This can be regarded as a step in the direction of religious conversion,” the news agency reported quoting the Tiwari’s complaint.
