REVEALED: Why Allahabad school manager Zia-Ul-Haq didn't allow students to sing National Anthem for 12 years

Allahabad: There is another revelation in the Allahabad school's National Anthem controversy!

According to details emerged so far, MA Convent's school manager Zia-Ul-Haq didn't allow the students to sing National Anthem for the past 12 years.

Citing an explanation for National Anthem ban,  Zia-Ul-Haq says, "Bharat bhagya vidhata line in National Anthem is anti-Islamic."

“The national anthem has a line, ‘Bharat bhagya vidhata’, which is against Islam as Allah is our bhagya vidhata. How can we say Bharat has made our destiny,” Haq explains. 

According to Zia-ul Haq, the ban decision was taken following objections from some Muslim parents.
