    Kanpur: Protests Erupt After St Mary's Convent School Girls Punished for Wearing Rakhi, Mehndi


    [​IMG]


    A Kanpur school raked up controversy after it punished students for wearing mehndi and rakhi to school.YouTube/Creative Mehandi Designs
    A major protest broke out in Kanpur on the premises of the St Mary's Convent School after some of its students were allegedly punished and humiliated for wearing 'rakhi' (sacred thread worn on the festival of Raksha Bandhan) and 'mehndi' (a natural dye) to school.

    According to reports, the victim students were made to stand in the sun as punishment for wearing rakhi and mehndi to the school. It is reported that the school authorities forced these girls to wash off the mehndi, which led to bleeding from their hands.

    Some reports said that the school authorities even forced a girl to rub her hands on a stone to clear the mehndi.



    The families of the students later arrived at the school located on GT Road in Fatehpur after the girls narrated them the incident.

    According to Hindi.news18.com, the parents were miffed with the school authorities as it is a common tradition during Raksha Bandhan to put on mehndi. The school authorities allegedly cut off the rakhi tied on the hands of the girls.

    The angry parents demanded an explanation from the school for such punishments. The police intervened when the situation got tense and calmed the agitated parents.

    The school authorities have maintained that the students were asked to remove mehndi and rakhi as the Catholic institution strictly forbids use of religious symbols in the school, it was reported.


    Reacting to the incident, a social media user later shared a picture of the school teachers, including the nuns, and questioned if the school doesn't permit religious symbols then why were teachers allowed to wear a 'cross' to the class.





    ........................

    I see that this news has not been reported here in this forum.

    Makes my blood boil!!! Apparently in India, everyone has rights but for Hindus.

    The school should be closed and each and everyone of the bastard teachers should be punished for violation of fundamental rights and child abuse and jailedI!!!

    I mean how long should this go on in the name of tolerance? I am ready to tolerate as long as the other one is respecting me and mine.

    Blame our MSM & bloody politicians for this. Their leftist ideology has made Hindus as a second class citizens here.

    This is an indicator of things to come, bad news for the soul-hunters. Parents protesting means that Hindu pride has been revived. We are no longer going to take this Convent BS lying down.

    A muslim run college in Kerala fines girls for celebrating diwali by lighting candles - withdraws it after protests.

    Karuna Medical College Kerala fines student for celebrating Diwali


    As we all know Diwali is the pan-Indian festival of light with the light symbolizing triumph of good over evil, freedom over forces of ignorance and cruelty. All Indian traditions be they Hindu, Buddhist, Jain or Sikh have their own way for celebrating this festival.
    The religious significance of Diwali for the Hindus varies regionally within India, depending on the regional myths and beliefs.

    In most cases, Diwali is linked to the celebration of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, and wife of Vishnu. The five -day festival of Diwali begins on the day Lakshmi was born from the churning of the cosmic ocean of ambrosia by the devas and the asuras. However in many regions, the festival of Diwali celebrates the return of Rama, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana to Ayodhya from an exile of fourteen years, as told in the ancient epic Ramayana.
    In India’s eastern region, such as West Bengal, the goddess Kali is worshipped instead of Lakshmi, and the festival is called Kali or Durga Puja. In the Western and Northern parts of India, the festival of Diwali marks the start of a new Hindu year.

    For South Indian Hindus the prevalent mythology of Diwali is the killing of Narakasura, a demon born when Vishnu rescued Earth from chaos. Narakasura, though born of divine parents, had an uncontrollable urge to conquer the entire universe. In the end he was met in battle and vanquished by Vishnu’s Krishna avatar, who was aided by an incarnation of Mother Earth herself.
    The Jain traditions believe that Lord Mahavira the last of the Jain Tirthankaras, attained Nirvana or Liberation on a Diwali dawn while according, to Sikhism the third Sikh Guru, Guru Amar Dhas made it a tradition that Sikhs should gather together on the day of Diwali and receive the Guru’s blessings. It was also the day the foundation stone of Har-Mandir Sahib was laid.
    The day of Diwali also marks the Bandi Chhor Divas, when Guru Har Gobind freed himself and a host of Hindu kings from Fort Gwalior, from the prison of Mughal ruler Jahangir, and arrived at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Ever since then, Sikhs celebrate Bandi Choorh Divas, with the annual lighting up of the Golden Temple, fireworks and other festivities.

    For the Sikhs, this festival also symbolizes sacrifice as the following extract from this piece states:
    As we celebrate Diwali we cannot forget the kind of sacrifices associated with it. One such is that of Bhai Mani Singh of the Khalsa Panth who in 1737 CE sacrificed his life for the right to celebrate Diwali in the Golden Temple (Harmandir) of Punjab. He was cut limb by limb and tortured for his “offense” in organizing the Festival of Light. With the choice either to embrace Islam or death under torture, Bhai Mani Singh, with his being fixed in Ek Onkar allowed the executioner to cut every inch of his body. Sikh tradition remembers how the martyr compassionately reminded the executioner to carry out the torture, when at one stage the executioner himself staggered at his own brutality. ‘I do not want you to get punished because you did not torture me properly’, the martyr said his hesitant torturer in a supreme display of compassion. To this day Sikhs remember this super-human sacrifice ……

    Cut from this glorious tradition of piety, devotion, courage, and sacrifice to “modern,” secular India.
    This piece of news comes from Karuna Medical College, Palakkad, Kerala. For some reason, the management of Karuna Medical College finds this Diwali unacceptable to the extent of issuing this circular:
    [​IMG]
    As seen in the circular, the college authorities have imposed a penalty of Rs.5000 on its students for lighting a couple of candles to observe Diwali which according to them was against the “good order and discipline of the college and the hostel.”
    Earlier last month, many eminent personalities were advising the citizens for a noiseless/peaceful Diwali since Diwali is a festival of light and not a festival of noise.
    But strangely, the students of KMC are being punished for following that very advice. The KMC authorities should clarify what exactly is the fault of these students: did they force others to light candles? Did they steal the candles from the college authorities? Did they burn any college property while lighting the candles?
    If none of the aforementioned misbehaviour occurred, then it is perfectly correct to call the KMC authorities anti-Hindu. On a side note, it would be interesting to see if the KMC hostel is decorated during Christmas or New Year celebrations or if they observe any special rituals or celebrations during Muslim festivals.
    As the college’s website clearly states, Karuna Medical College is run by “the Safe Development Alms Trust” which is a “registered Charitable Trust constituted by the Minority Community of Muslims.” Does a tale hang thereby?
    Now if the college authorities state that they are against any form of religious celebration, their case is weak even there because there was nothing overly religious in the manner in which the students celebrated Diwali.
    Also for argument’s sake if the KMC authorities were thinking of punishing the student for violating the ‘secular record’ of the hostel, what is the reason for imposing such a hefty penalty? Surely the candles were not that expensive, were they?
    It seems the KMC authorities have a lot of questions to answer for their anti-Hindu decision.

    stupid indians thinks very high of convent schools,
    as a blessings to their children and indian education by being place of so called high quality education,

    but actually convent schools are meant for orphans,poor children where girls learns to be maids and boys learns gardening,
    maybe they also have so basic education of language or maths,

    convents schools are actually schools in chruch,
    but when it comes to india,they built chruch in school,
    this is work of their christian lobby,corrupt politicians,congressis,foreign funded ngos and so called liberals.

    I went to a convent school, and never had any problem going there with a rakhi on.

    Some of you people are hyperventilating. The problem is with St. Mary's school, not convent schools in general.

    The reason some are not blaming the convent schools in general, such as the leftists, is because leftists are not right wing loonies, and can actually think rationally.

    Same here. 13 years in a missionary school, never had any such problem. Infact had longer Diwali holidays than most non-missionary schools.

    Sisters were sadistic bitches though.

    Unfortunately in India one needs to shout to get noticed. Not convinced? See how little time it took for the Christian community put the blame of Church attacks on the Right Wing and the media bought it and kept running it for weeks.

    Natural balance must be maintained, people must be made aware of such occurrences which went unnoticed in past.

    Off-topic, but do you know why the Indian media has preferred to remain silent over the issue of the recent murder of a so-called "Rationalist"? No Panel Discussions? That is because the Right Wingers on social media kept egging the media, and did not allow it to retract silently. We need to keep the pressure on for our own sake.

    No, not convinced.

    Went to a Roman Catholic Missionary School. Wore rakhi on raksha bandhan day. Nobody objected.

    Intolerance of one missionary school does not mean all missionary schools are intolerant.

    I can easily make a counter-claim, display of tolerance in one Missionary School is not sufficient to prove overall tolerance. Different Christian groups adopt different tactics, some are more aggressive than the others. Roman Catholics are known to be less aggressive towards non-Christians compared to other Christian denominations (for analogy: Shias vs Wahabis).

    But I am not at all concerned about how widespread this malice is. Instead of keeping quite and consequently encouraging such behaviour, it is better to nip it in bud. Such approach stops a trivial issue from becoming unmanageable. We have witnessed in Karnataka and Orissa how tolerance is is easily misjudged for weakness and then something bad happens (Satyadarshini, assasinations) which starts a chain reaction. Who could imagine that Christian groups could hire professional assassins to eliminate a rival?

    The Hindu RW has been copying the tactics invented by the Christian Activists and Groups and this is a necessary evil if we wish to maintain a fair balance. Why should the RW be singled out when Stereotyping is such a common phenomenon. We have got a thread running on the topic of how UK stereotypes India.

    You are not making a counter claim. You are actually making the same point that I am making.

    One school being intolerant does mean all schools are so.
    One school being tolerant does not mean all schools are so.

    So, we are on the same page.

    Regarding the rest of you post, I am not countering those points, because you might as well be right there. Bottom line is, we both agree on the basic idea, we should not broadbrush.

    @pmaitra lets not mix your experience with the issue that has happened at this particular school.
    In this case what the school did is not justified.

    Treatment of Hindu students in Christian institutions

    Maitra's moronic observation is like this: I have never been a victim of terror attacks, therefore there is no terrorism in India.

    Let's not mix what happened in this particular school and with what happens or does not happen in every school.
    Agreed.

    I think your position, along with a few others here, is that one Muslims is a terrorist, therefore every Muslim is a terrorist.

    You are a simple guy, so focus on simple things. This issue is too complicated, and you are too thick to handle this. Just don't over simplify a complicated thing. App se nahi ho payega. Jaane dijiye.

    If you still don't get it, read the article by Sagarika Ghose about bhakts, and you might understand. She hits the nail in the head.

    I know dude. . .You are simply waiting for the time unlike the other liberals.

    And this attitude of looking down.

    Read the highlighted part.

    I never seen you reacting to English or Pakis like this manner.
    You seem to counter their points with extreme wit.

    But when it comes to Indian Posters, you seem to lose your wit and goes for name calling.

    Perhaps someone need to remind you of your nationality. I think you are too much russian than Indian.

    Enough of ad hominem

    What happening in that convent is happening all over the country.

    99.99% convents push for conversation.

    The output students either become christian or leftist.

    First type for their own growth and second type is for destruction of their enemies ( at least for Indian context).

    The best way to deal with these cunts is by having your own brand of schools which do these things back to them. By sheer attrition, these cunts can be eliminated with ease- .ie

    75% are Hindus in India . 4% are xtians(including the Cryptos). So by math, the chance of Hindus ending up in xtian schools are several times lower than xtiand ending up in Hindu mission schools. So if Hindus adopt the same strategy, we can convert them back at a much higher rate.

    This also holds true for inter religion marriages too. Which is exactly why we should not have anti conversion laws. If only Hindus showed some balls, it will be xtians who will be asking for anti conversion laws.

    whr invaders hv been eulogised, heroes binned!!
    i studied a couple of initial years (and paid many a rupees as fine for committing the 'crime' [!] of speaking in Hindi in the school-premises) in the same-named school at Lko; don't know if they're the same schools. but this is by no means a new 'news', @jackprince. this is an yearly occurrence. last year or the one before that too had something of this sort, in Mumbai or somewhere. cases of children losing lives because of punishment/beatings also occur some times in such instances.
    the PM states that religious intolerance is increasing. this MAY give an impression to some doves that since a 'RW' govt. is in power, this was expected. however, right-left-centre-up-down whatever govt., such tactics (as in the OP) apparently don't qualify for being a cause/effect of intolerance, a formulation, over which, according to certain 'intellectuals', only the 'mischievous RW' has a patent.

    P.S. - perhaps the AIB pussies were instantly reminded of the punishments they got in their respective convent schools as children, which is why they lost no time in prostating before the archdiocese of Mumbai when they learnt that xtians were 'hurt' with some comments in their roast-crap they had organised. and may be some gentle-talk with Hindus after cracking 2-paisa 'jokes' on Lord Ganesh?! bah! have you gone bonkers?! do you ever talk to your home's doormat or rug?!
