Karnataka: After the hijab controversy in Karnataka, there is an uproar over the Bible. Clarence High School in Bangalore has asked parents to send their children to the school grounds with the Bible and they have no objection to the school’s decision. Right-wing groups have expressed outrage over the case, calling it a violation of the Karnataka Education Act. Mohan Gowda, state spokesman for the Hindu Janjagarti Samiti, claimed that the school was forcing non-Christian students to read the Bible. There are also non-Christian students who are attending school and are forced to read the Bible. However, the school defended its position, saying that it provides Bible education.
Hubli Violence: UP, MP model not required, Karnataka model will be implemented.
Meanwhile, Karnataka Chief Minister Biswaraj Bomai said on Sunday that the Uttar Pradesh-Madhya Pradesh model was not needed to curb riots in the state. The Karnataka model will be applied in the investigation of the Hubli sectarian violence case.

We are trying to find out which forces are responsible for inciting the people in this incident. He assured that the administration would soon take stern action against those responsible.
