Chennai School Sparks Wrangle, Terms R-Day Vandals As "Violent Maniacs"

DAV School in Chennai’s Gopalapuram has sparked a controversy as it referred Republic Day vandals as "violent maniacs" in a question paper. The question has asked students of class 10 to write a letter to a newspaper editor "condemning violent acts on the R-Day by miscreants and suggesting ways to thwart violent maniacs". Agitated by this, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor and Carnatic vocalist TM Krishna demanded a clarification from the school, terming the act "propagandist".
