SC seeks Centre’s view on making Moral Science compulsory

The Supreme Court on Monday sought responses from the Centre and the CBSE on a plea to make ‘Moral Science’ subject compulsory in class I to XII in schools across the country.

A bench comprising Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice A K Sikri issued notices to Human Resources Development Ministry and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on the PIL filed by woman lawyer Santosh Singh on the issue.

“Issue a writ...and direct both respondents (Centre and CBSE) to include moral science in syllabus of School Education i.e. Class I to Class XII in order to include moral values and nurture national character in the national interest,” the plea said.

The petition said that there is a rapid degradation of moral values in the society where ‘making
money anyhow’ is the sole motto of life.
