Nearly a week after a convent school teacher was sacked for allegedly insulting Hindu gods, the St Gerosa English Higher Primary School in Mangaluru raised concerns and questions in which the investigations were conducted.

Sister Prabha was sacked after a complaint lodged by a parent of a student alleging the teacher of religious conversion, calling Lord Ram a mythological figure, spread misinformation against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and spoke about the 2002 Godhra Riots and Bilkis Bano case, causing “disturbance to students’ minds.”

On February 15, an FIR was filed against two BJP MLAs, BJP MLA from Dakshin Kannada Vedavyas Kamath in connection with staging a protest to condemn the alleged incident of “humiliation of Hindu gods” at the convent school.

Kamath along with Hindutva groups Bajrang Dal and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) protested in front of the school demanding an immediate termination of the teacher, Sister Prabha.

Following the incident, a delegation of the Congress party leaders led by former minister Ramanath Rai visited the school. The school authorities complained that the BJP MLAs had issued statements that would pit Hindus and Christians against each other.

Now the school authorities have come out with their press statement stating that Sister Prabha firmly denies the accusation against her.
