India: Kerala State Hopes to Ban Worship in Schools

KERALA – The Education Rules Reforms Committee in the southwestern state of Kerala has recently recommended that religious worship be banned from schools that receive state assistance, including private schools run by missionaries, AsiaNews reported on February 11. Such schools would also be required to appoint teachers from a pre-approved list compiled by a group with no connection to the school. The latter point has raised concerns that such a procedure would result in discrimination against teachers from minority religions.
