The human resource development ministry's proposal to begin sex education for Class 6-12 students from June has evoked the ire of the Islamic Students Organization of India (ISOI).

The ISOI, which organized a rally here Tuesday, has also started a signature campaign against the government plan.

"We are shocked and surprised by the ministry's move to introduce sex education in schools. How will we digest the fact that a 10-year-old boy or girl will be taught how to use a condom?" asked ISOI's state unit president Sarik Ansari.

He said: "This is a serious matter and the government should opt for other ways to create awareness among students and public. The ministry's move seems to be motivated by multinational companies that are forcing the government to introduce such things in schools."

The ISOI is also planning to seek support from other student bodies like the Students Federation of India (SFI), National Students Union of India (NSUI) and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) to pressurize the government to withdraw the plan.

If you want to educate the young regarding these adult things, Educate their parents and tell them to speak to their children. No one other than the parents should speak these sexual things to the children. As a last thing, this sex education had never changed anyone to good in the History. These decisions are taken by brainless people who dont know what is good to young people and who are in High positions.

Anyone have the guts to help young people... Then Ban all adult contents in TV,Radio,Newspaper. They are allowed for as if they are for good reasons.But everyone will be induced to do it and thats what is happening.They are the main sources for these bad things in people. If you see US, because of this same thing happened in 1950s, Now almost all people have sex at age 13 itself. They have changed from Family culture to Animal culture. These adult contents in TV,Radio,Newspaper has slowly,indirectly created the whole lot of bad things in the world.
