Thanks. Any ways, the media seems to have conveniently decided not to publicize the names of the business groups involved. The school web site (http://peaceschools.in/mission
), also seems to be silent on the promoters of this venture. Yesterday the management of the school had also called for a press meet. In the meet; Peace School rejects terror charge
. The English media report how ever ignores a few salient point which was reported in the local press.
1. The management admited that there was this controversial topic on "religious conversion" in their 2nd Std. text books. The management only said they instructed the teaching staff NOT to teach the chapter. But the contents are really out there.
2. The management says that it was aware of this chapter, did write to the publishers to pull out the chapter. They did not accept it, but the school continued to get the same text books.
3. The school is NOT officiated to the CBSE, and they only plan to do it when the first batch reaches Std. 9. The school also do NOT have any no objection certificates from the state government as well. They plan to get it only when they need to approach CBSE for accreditation. So this school is pretty much a privately managed Madrassah like establishment, with no formal affiliation with any educational board (state or central)
The report from New Indian Express is much more detailedWe haven't converted any student, says Peace School
