The bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and R Hemalatha issued the notice returnable by March 19, when the writ petition from advocate S Doraisamy, also the vice-president of Thanthai Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam (TPDK), came up on Wednesday.
The passage stated that the Hindu Maha Sabha (HMS) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) took a prominent anti-Muslim stance.
An RSS member P Chandrasekaran had also filed a separate writ petition in the High Court to remove that passage on the ground that it was a baseless and wrong message.
The highly objectionable passage should be deleted, otherwise it would lower the image of the RSS, he had contended.
In his petition, Doraisamy sought to direct the School Education authorities not to remove the passage.
