Mala
bar Schools Stop Mid-day Meals.Cut Short School Hours
Trivandrum:
Citing Ramzan fast as reasons, Government schools in Malabar region have stopped Mid-daymeal Scheme. Since it is fasting period putting the academic calendar into disarray, the school timings havebeen pruned too. The school hours have been changed from 10am to 4pm.
It is the Union Government’s policy to serve Mid
-day meals in every Government and Government AidedSchools across all states and includes beneficiaries irrespective of Caste or Religion. It is not just Muslimstudents who study in Government schools. This special policy for Malabar Schools, like in Islamic Countries, todeny Mid-day meals to beneficiaries belonging to other faiths when Muslim Students are fasting has beensanctioned by the Education Department.Since the beginning of Ramzan fast, a majority the Government schools in Palakkad, Malappuram, Kozhikode,Kannur, Kasargod districts, have stopped mid-day meal scheme. This has affected Non-Muslim studentpopulation. Students of other communities have been informed school authorities & PTA office bearers thatMid day meals will not be served till end of Ramzan in view of fast being observed by Muslim students.Challenging of this decision some PTA office bearers and guardians has been futile. No action has been taken
despite sending a written complaint & representation to the Minister’s Secretariat.
