Another instance is observed in Bihar a few days after schools in Jharkhand are being indiscriminately Islamized. Similar to Jharkhand, certain Bihar schools too impose Islamic regulations arbitrary. According to media sources, the residents of the Kishanganj district disregarded the law and imposed arbitrary rules on the schools. Due to the significant Muslim population in this district, there are 19 schools where the weekly holiday has been altered from Sunday to Friday and Jumma has been declared a holiday. But on the other hand, these schools have Sunday classes.

According to the Education Department, this custom has persisted for a long time because of the area’s Muslim population and the large number of minority pupils attending the schools.

However, no directive has been issued in this regard. These schools have been granted a holiday so that Namaz can be offered on Friday due to the high number of Muslim students.

However, this school does not even teach Urdu. This school is a Hindi school, and more than 80% of the students are Muslims, according to the principal. The principal claimed that from the school’s founding, Friday has been a holiday to perform Namaz, and classes have been held on Sundays.

Subhash Kumar Gupta, the district’s education officer, asserted that this policy was, in fact, being adhered to at the district’s minority-populated schools in accordance with an ancient custom. These schools have Fridays off, while Sundays are when classes are held.

While there hasn’t been a government directive issued in this regard. There are no minority schools in the district, according to Shaukat Ali, DPO of the Education Department; the schools that have Friday and Sunday off are all regular schools.

Actually, the only district in Bihar with a plurality of Muslims is Kishanganj. Additionally, Kishanganj is the only Lok Sabha seat in the nation with a population that is 70% Muslim.

Reportedly, there are only a few Hindus left in this district as a result of the large number of Muslim infiltrators from Bangladesh who have relocated there. As a result, this district’s reliance on core components is growing greater.

However, it is neither appropriate for schools nor for the country the way appeasement is being incorporated into the educational system.
