Deeksha Pracharak Samiti said – Christian schools are doing arbitrariness
Prem Gandhi, the national campaigner of Akhil Bharat Deeksha Pracharak Samiti, said that if anyone tries to stop us, we are ready to protest. Gandhi said that Christian missionaries and private schools of other religions in Telangana are doing their own thing. They are preventing children from wearing Ayyappa Mala.

Today we along with 1000 devotees of Ayyappa swamy demonstrated in front of the school, in response to which the school administration has said that they will allow children to enter the school wearing Ayyappa garlands. Such incidents are happening all over the state, so we are appealing to the administration to let everyone live according to their wishes without any uproar.

Talking about this incident, the Inspector of Chander Ghat Police Station said that around 10 people came to the station and talked to the management. The matter was settled immediately. It was just a misunderstanding.
