NGO expresses concern after school in Meghalaya opens on Christmas Eve



The Federation of Khasi Jaintia and Garo People (FKJGP), Garo Hills expressed concern after Down Hill school in New Bhatibari under West Garo Hills (WGH) in Meghalaya asked its teachers to attend school on December 24, Christmas Eve.

“It has been learnt that the school has asked its teachers to come to school on Christmas Eve. We respect all religions, but this goes against the spirit of tolerance for us. Calling for work on the day when Christmas holidays begin is not how the spirit needs to be propagated,” FKJGP President Pritam Arengh said.

The NGO has requested the school authorities to call the day a holiday for all staff and students, so that all may enjoy the spirit of Christmas.
