In an audio message circulated on social media, one of the girl students alleged that a group of students have “threatened” them for chanting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ in school premises.
“We have been threatened and told not to chant the slogan instead were asked to follow their terms and conditions,” she said in a message.
“We were not objected by the teachers but some of our seniors, classmates and juniors raised objections and threatened to beat us for chanting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ after the National Anthem,” she said.
The student said they have submitted a copy of complaint to the Deputy Commissioner stating that they have every right to chant national slogan being citizens of the country.
