Teaching school subjects that contain shirk

Q: I am and Indian and in Indian education system there are subjects that contains shirk. I have helped my class mates to learn these subjects containing shirk but only for study purposes. Am I sinful?

If yes, is it ok if I don't advice them to stop because this will be explaining to non Muslims about shirk.

A: Obviously it is a sin. So make taubah. And make it known to them that this is haraam and shirk and they should also make taubah.

You should make taubah first and then tell them that according to you it is false and there is no basis for this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
