Assam missionary school faces statue threat, seeking police protection

Must read

Guwahati, Feb 19: Carmel School, one of the oldest missionary schools in upper Assam sought police protection after a poster was pasted on its boundary wall warning the authorities to “take off” all religious statues from the school.

The school authority has informed the matter to the Cinnamara police outpost about the poster pasted on Friday night and urged the police to look into the matter and take necessary action.

The school is situated at Jorhat district of Assam.


The formal application seeking police protection, shared by a church body, further said the “sensitive matter” had “created a sense of panic in the school campus”.

No organisation or individual has claimed responsibility for pasting the poster.

This development comes after some Guwahati based right-wing organisations directing schools run by missionaries or Christian community members on February 7 to remove religious symbols or statues of Jesus, Mary, the Cross and Church from school campus within 15 days.
