Aligarh: The Hindu Jagaran Manch has warned schools in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh to not to celebrate Christmas.
As per the members of the Hindu outfit, celebrating Christmas is a step towards religious conversion.
Sonu Savita, the ‘mahanagar’ president of Hindu Jagaran Manch, alleged that the activity of taking toys and gifts to schools will affect the mentality of students.
Speaking to ANI, Savita said, “We have directed the schools not to impose Christian celebrations to Hindu kids because these actions indirectly lead to religious conversion. These activities also affect the students’ mental condition.”
Savita further warned the schools, if they continue such activities, the outfit will protest against the schools.
“As of now we have requested the schools to follow the directives, however, if such activities do not stop we will protest. The Hindu Jagaran Manch believes that it falls under the category of conversion if Hindus are suppressed for joining such kind of such programs, then we will take legal action against it,” added Savita.
