Muslim Girls want to study – Delhi Government School says NO

ALL INDIA PARENTS ASSOCIATION Aggarwal Bhawan, G. T. Road, Tis Hazari, Delhi -110054 M- 09811101923, 9810133325 05/04/2013 To Prof. Ms. Kiran Walia, Education Minister, Government of NCT of Delhi Secretariat, I.P. Estate, New Delhi-110002 Sub: Muslim Girls want to study – Delhi Government School says NO Dear Madam, 3 young girls in the age group 6-7 years belonging to Muslim Community have come to my office today morning complaining that they want to go to school to study but a Delhi Government School at Patparganj is not admitting them in school on the excuse that the school does not have seats for them. It is all shocking that despite Constitutional Guarantee to these children, a State-run school has denied them admission. It appears that the Government is least interested in the education of the children belonging to the minority community like Muslim, otherwise it would not have happened. Nasima Khatoon (DOB 26.01.2006) d/o Mohd Mustafa, Shenaj (DOB 07.08.2007) d/o Sadray Alam (M-9213982480) and Jasmeen (DOB 22.10.2006) d/o Aslam, all resident of E 77/224, Nehru Camp, I.P. Extension, Patpar Ganj, Delhi-110092 have been illegally denied admission by Sarvodya Kanya Vidyayala, Patparganj, Delhi-91. It is a very serious matter. Even after 65 years of independence and three years of RTE Act, 2009, the Government Schools are still not sensitive and child-friendly. You are requested to kindly look into the matter and do the needful on urgent basis. With regards, Ashok Agarwal, Advocate National President, AIPA M-09811101923
