Not really it's part of a broader initiative to discriminate against Christians, while giving the others a pass. I am not personally a Christian, but it's painful obvious the discrimination, by government, media and academia. My favourite moment was at the beginning of a large FN consultation meeting the Chief was asked to bless the meeting. Much squirming in seats when he recited the Lords prayer, instead of some FN ceremony they were all expecting. This direction is just another "Brick in the wall".Having well meaning words of remembrance can still hit that comforting tone, without alienating those who are irreligious.
This is just nonsensical. At no point in my career have I encountered prayers that were obviously Hindu or Muslim in nature. I certainly can't say the same about obvious Christian-derived prayers.
No one's trying to curb Hindu or Muslim practices in CAF ceremonies / events because there's nothing there to curb.
