A screen grab of the viral video first shared by former JK CM Mehbooba Mufti.

Srinagar: Expressing serious concern over the reports of school children forced to sing Hindu hymns, CPI(M) Secretary Ghulam Nabi Malik has said that it has exposed the BJP government’s agenda of saffornisation of education.

The CPI(M) Secretary, in a statement, said that a video is making rounds on social media, in which school staff is seen asking students in a class to sing the famous hymn ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ in a government school of Kulgam area.

“The rituals and beliefs of a particular caste or faith cannot be imposed on the education system of a secular nation. Such activities can prove detrimental to a harmonious educational atmosphere,” the statement added.
