New Delhi: There is a strange rumour spreading Assam that Muslim children are given vaccines that render them impotent. This rumour prompted parents to stop their children from sending to schools!
In fact the rumours are flying so high that in the last four days the attendance in the schools in state had fallen to as low as 10%. When media questioned headmasters of schools regarding the rumours they clarified that no vaccines of any sort are given to children and reiterated that these are baseless rumours.
The rumours started on 16th and parents of Peeth Middle English School came to school with the allegation and took away their wards to home. Since then the rumours went on spreading across Whatsapp messenger and more and more parents stopped sending their wards to schools!
