It seems the The S J Dave School, located in Shehra village in the district, had set a 'uniform' code in 1999. Muslim students were to wear a badge with a star and Hindu students to wear one of Goddess Saraswati and it came to the notice of the District Education Officer (only) recently."Show cause notices have been issued to the school administrators and they have been instructed to stop the practice immediately," says Godhra DEO V J Shah . However, the practice in this school was started with the consent of the trustees that also included Muslims, Shah added.
Hmmm what about children whoose parents belong to different religions or orphans? What badge should they have worn? Important issues in educational system :)
