Allahabad school sealed for banning National Anthem; manager claimed 'Bharat Bhagya Vidhata' line is against Islam

Allahabad: The Allahabad school whose manager didn't allow students to sing the National Anthem, has been sealed.

MA Convent School's manager Zia-Ul-Haq had refused to allow students to sing the National Anthem claiming that 'Bharat Bhagya Vidhata' line is against Islam. Zia-Ul-Haq has already been arrested.

The students will be shifted to other schools, a report in TOI said.

A probe is under way to find out how MA Convent School was allowed to run for two decades without proper affiliation.

A major controversy had broken out on Sunday over ban on National Anthem on this Allahabad school. 

People from various sections of society had slammed the school management for the move.
