After an exhaustive debate on the motion, the members agreed that the policy was incongruent with the spirit and letters of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) on the provision of religious liberties.

The House agreed that students with the inputs of their parents at formative years should be taught the religious subjects of their choice in school.

It was also agreed that CRK and Islamic Studies be treated independently.
