After conducting namaz in class, Karnataka school headmistress suspended:- The Karnataka Education Department officials have suspended the school headmistress of the government school following the outrage of conducting namaz. The Hindu organizations protested after Muslim students are being allowed to offer namaz in the classroom. The members of the Hindu outfit reached the Mulbagal Someswara Palaya Bale Changappa Government Kannada Model Higher Primary School after the video went viral about students conducting namaz in the classes. An inquiry has been ordered and the Block Education Officer (BEO) Girijeswari Devi suspended the school headmistreess Uma Devi.
A team of four members reached the school to conduct an inquiry after which the headmistress was suspended. The Muslim students are given permission for namaz on Fridays during the b breaks but they are never allowed to perform namaz in the school campus. Girijeswari Devi said that the headmistress was suspended after there are no religious prayers allowed in the government schools. Headmistress Uma Devi clarified that she hasn't granted any permission for any student to perform namaz in the classroom and the students did it in her absence. Karnataka Education Minister B C Nagesh ordered an investigation and he asked the teachers and officials not to repeat such incidents in the future.
