Kozhikode, Jun 27 (UNI) The Coordination Committee of Muslim Organisations (CCMO) in Kerala will intensify its agitation demanding withdrawal of a controversial textbook from the school curriculum in the State.
Talking to newspersons today, after a meeting of CCMO sub-committee here, Indian Union Muslim League State General Secretary P K Kunhalikutty said the decision to intensify the struggle was taken following the refusal of the State government to withdraw a portion of the class VII social studies textbook, which allegedly propagated ''atheism and anti-religious sentiments.'' He said a detailed agitational plan would be announced at a convention here on July 5.
The meet also decided to announce protest declarations in all the mosques in the State on July 4 against the Government's ''adamant'' attitude on the issue, he said.
It was also decided to seek support from other religious organisations on the subject matter, the IUML leader said.
Apart from the IUML, leaders of the Samastha Kerala Jem-Eyyathul Ulema (AP and EK factions), the Jamat-E-Islami, the Kerala Nadavathul Mujahideen, both factions, Muslim Educational Society and Kerala Arabic Teachers Federations also attended the meeting.
