Hindus claim religious bias in admissions to Indian Catholic school

Catholic World News - January 10, 2011

Hindu militants have protested admissions policies at a Catholic school in Ujjain, India, claiming that the school discriminates on the basis of religion.

“The school management insulted our religion and refused admissions to Hindu children,” a Hindu leader claimed. An administrator at St. Mary’s Convent School replied that the school admits students of all religious backgrounds, and in fact 80% of the students are Hindus.
