This is the cause of mortification in people.
What Indian Constitution Says About This
The Constitution discloses that it is a person’s circumspection if they want to choose or opt for a religion or not and the choice is not supposed to to be limited to given number only. This freedom is surpassed in the SSC Forms.
The authorities force them to choose from a given set of religions. The authorities said that if parents will not choose any religion, then they shall lose their complete academic year and this has forced the parents to raise their voice and protest against this.
Why Parents Are Protesting
Parents are angry with this action and these type of rules & regulations of SSC. They are feeling humiliated and forced to do so. The choice of religion in the SSC form ranges from Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhist, Muslim etc. But what if they are not following any religion. This is such a big question and the parents are feeling disrespected due to this behavior of authorities.
