▪ The SC posed this question to the Centre as it agreed to hear a public interest litigation (PIL) on the issue

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today sent a notice to the Centre questioning the ‘Hindu’ school prayer at government-run Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs).
The apex court wants the Centre’s response on why the school prayer in KVs should be allowed, because government- aided schools aren’t supposed to propagate any religion.
The SC posed this question to the Centre as it agreed to hear a public interest litigation which says that the school prayer in KVs propagates Hindu religion, and therefore should not be allowed, because KVs are government-run schools.
There are 1,125 KVs in India and three KVs abroad, as per 2015 numbers. There are approximately 11 lakh students enrolled in these schools.
