Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) schools across Uttar Pradesh have witnessed an increase of Muslim students by 30 percent in the last two years.
According to the organisation, there are about 7,000 Muslim students are studying in 1,200 RSS schools.
Further, RSS claimed that the students were following all rules like reciting ‘slokas’ and ‘bhojan mantras’ and they have brought laurels to their schools.
Chintamani Singh, state inspector of Vidhya Bharti, which manages these schools, told TOI, “Our students such as Mohammad Aqib, Aftab Alam, Ejaj Ahmad, Gufranuddin and Mohammad Akaram have won medals at national sporting events and youth commonwealth games.”
Also, RSS said that current numbers shatter their image of BJP’s ideological parent.
“RSS is not anti-Muslim or against any religion, it is pro-India with no communal agenda,” a source said.
Singh added that the schools also recently recruited eight Muslim teachers.
