Kozhikode: MLA MK Muneer has raised sharp criticism against Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and LDF government over adopting gender-neutral uniforms in schools. He alleged that the government is encouraging apostasy in the name of gender equality.
“ If all these moves mark gender equality, why don’t Pinarayi Vijayan wear a saree and blouse?,” asked Muneer.
Muneer was addressing a seminar on ‘Religion, Marxism and Atheism’ organised by MSF here on Sunday.
“The government has tabled the draft of the new school curriculum for discussion. It calls for gender equality. The government is promoting disrespect towards religion in schools by introducing gender equality. Why don’t boys wear salwar? Why don’t Pinarayi wear a saree and blouse?,” asked Muneer.
Instead of forcefully bringing gender-neutral uniforms in schools, efforts must be taken to ensure social equality, he added.
