Further, the petition stated that surya namaskar is to be performed on empty stomach whereas children go to school after having breakfast.

Ansari advocate Anjali Awasthi said,”Therefore, it will not be proper for them to perform this exercise during morning prayers,” she said.

She argued that the resolution also makes its compulsory to chant certain mantras.
