Hindu right-wing groups attack MP school over conversion claims

Dec 7, 2021: Hindu extremist Right-wing groups stormed a convent school in Madhya Pradesh and pelted the building with stones, claiming that the students were being converted to Christianity.

The incident took place at St. Joseph’s School in Ganj Basuda on Monday while students were taking exams, which had to be stopped due to the incident. When the incident happened, the students were immediately transferred to a room on the second floor of the building and barely escaped.

Sub-Divisional Magistrate Roshan Rai has summoned the school administration in view of the situation and a heavy contingent of police has been deployed inside the school premises and nearby church. Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad supporters who attacked the school alleged that the administration had converted eight students and demanded an investigation.

When the extremists called on the school, students were taking an exam. However, the students were safely shifted to another room when the vandalism took place.

Visva Hindu Parishad head Nilesh Agrawal said the land for the school was donated by one Rajesh Mathur for building a hospital. However, it is now being used for business by the school. He demanded that the Chief Minister of the state and the District Collector initiate a probe in the matter of conversion and also said he would ask Rajesh Mathur to take back the land.
