New Delhi: The HRD Ministry is believed to have asked ICSE Board for a status report about the publication of a portrait of Prophet Muhammad in a Class IV book.

Making portrait of Paigambar is not allowed in Islam. Several Muslim organisations have objected to the publication of the portrait.

According to sources, though ICSE is an independent body, the Ministry has asked it for a report keeping in mind the sensitivity surrounding the issue.

The Ministry would contemplate further action only after it gets a reply from the Board, they said.
