Christian schools in the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay) have opposed a proposal by civic authorities to promote Hindu culture in classrooms.

They argue that plans to introduce Hindutva culture - or the Hindu way of life - into missionary schools is unconstitutional and unfair.

The proposal is now being considered by the Maharashtra state government.

The body which runs the 150-odd Christian schools in Mumbai is now preparing to take legal action.
