(ANSA) - NEW DELHI, 04 MAR - The National Institute for OpenSchooling (NIOS), an autonomous institution controlled by the Federal Ministry of Education, has introduced fifteen new subjects dedicated to the culture of ancient India into the study plans of primary schools, which have raised alarm between the main Muslim organizations in the country.


    Courses range from the founding texts of the Hindu religion, such as iVeda, the Ramayana, and the Bhagwad Gita, to teaching how to care for cows and clean up creepy cow shelters.


    Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind (JuH), the most representative Muslim school organization in the country, called the introduction of these subjects "careless and inappropriate" and said the government is trying to impose Hindu education on children of different faiths.


    Niaz Farooqui, the secretary of (JuH), told the Sputnik agency: "We would have had no objection if these subjects had been introduced in high schools, where students have already matured their religious conviction: in this way, instead, they try to inculcate a single religion for children who are too young, who are unable to choose freely "(ANSA).
