Bengaluru: When a raging debate over intolerance is going on in the country, a 13-year-old Muslim girl from Karnataka, has scored 93 percent and topped the Ramayana exam.
Fathimath Rohila, who hails from Karnataka, topped the exam conducted by Bharatha Sanskriti Prathisthan in November 2015.
Fathimath is a student of Sarvodaya High School and had a keen interest in pursuing course in the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
The Class 9 student is now preparing for the Mahabharata exam.
Last year, Marryam Siddiqui, a Muslim girl, won first prize in an inter-school Bhagavad Gita competition.
The 12-year-old Class VI student of Cosmopolitan High School won the 'Gita Champions League' contest for explaining the teachings of the scripture in the best possible manner. Around 3,000 students participated in the event, which was organised by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) in January 2015.
The Gita, believed to be the divine advice of Lord Krishna, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is a part of the epic Mahabharata.
