Fact check : Article 30 doesn’t bar Schools from teaching Bhagwat Geeta

A social media post is going viral claiming that Article 30 A of the Indian constitution bars teaching of Bhagavad Geeta and Vedas in school whereas the same article allows Madrasas to teach Quran and Hadis.

A right wing activist with Picture of Dr. Subramanium Swamy on his cover page shared the post on twitter. While publishing this article the post had around 600 retweet.

Fact: There is no Article 30A in the Indian Constitution. Also, Article 30 (1, 1A and 2) deals with the ‘rights of minorities to establish and administer educational institutions’. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

What is Article 30?

Article 30 of the India Constitution states the right of minorities to establish and administer educational institutions.

Article 30(1) says that all minorities, whether based on religion or language, shall have the right to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice.

Article 30(1A) deals with the fixation of the amount for acquisition of property of any educational institution established by minority groups.

Article 30(2) states that the government should not discriminate against any educational institution on the ground that it is under the management of a minority, whether based on religion or language, while giving aid.

It is clear that no provision under Article 30 bars schools from teaching Bhagvad Gita and Vedas.
