Rajratna Ambedkar, great grandnephew of freedom fighter BR Ambedkar, has called on state governments across the country to remove idols of Hindu deities such as Durga and Saraswati from schools and stop making children sing durga aarti at the premises.


This comes in the wake of protests against wearing hijab at schools and colleges in Karnataka.

Mr Rajratna demanded the same in a video livestreamed on Facebook on Thursday. He started by quoting Maharashtra minister Aditya Thackeray as saying that schools are meant to get education and there should not be a representation of any political, religious thing at the premises.


“I welcome his observation. But want to submit that this rule should not be limited to hijab only,” he said.

He further sought to immediately remove idols of Hindu deities, Dura and Saraswati and stop organising prayers associated to Hindu deities in schools across the country.

“Our children are made to sing durga aarti instead of national anthem. This should be stopped,” he added.

A single Bench of the Kerala HC ruled that collective rights of an institution was greater than individual rights of the petitioner.”
