AIMPLB opposes Yoga, ‘Surya Namaskar’ in schools

Lucknow, June 8 (IANS) The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Monday decided to launch a campaign against the union government’s move to make Yoga and ‘Surya Namaskar’ compulsory in schools across the country.

The decision was taken in a meeting of the executive committee of the board which decided to constitute a committee – Majlis-e-Amal -to look into this particular matter and other issues related to ‘taleem’ (education) and if need be approach the apex court against the move of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.

AIMPLB spokesman Maulana Abdul Raheem Qureshi said that such moves by the Modi government were sowing the seed of insecurity among minorities, specially Muslims.

“Whatever is unfolding is not good for the secular fabric of the country and Modi should realise that he is the prime minister of India and not that of RSS,” he quipped.
