A group claiming to represent Brahman Samaj has objected to construction of a church in Carmel School campus. They submitted a memorandum to District Education Officer and a minister. “Some parents approached me and complained that school management of Carmel School is asking for donation from them to build a church in the school campus,” said Pandit Purnendu Mishra, state president of Akhil Bhartiya Brahman Samaj.
School management has denied the claims and said that a church is being built inside the school campus but it has never asked for financial help from any parent. District Education Officer, Dharmendra Sharma said that he has received the memorandum and will inquire into the matter however he added that building a religious place for prayer inside school campus is not correct. Mishra said that he also met public relations and religious affairs minister PC Sharma and handed over a memorandum to him also.
