Nowadays, for parents, their kid’s safety in school has become a big worry. Recently, we have seen few incidents which prove that school and the teachers are not worried about student’s safety.
A few days back second class student was killed in the toilet of Gurugram’s Ryan International School. Then a day before we got a CCTV footage in which we saw a teacher hitting the student with a wooden duster and fractured his hand. This incident took place in Kanpur’s Stepping Stones school. Now, again in Kanpur school, an incident took place which raised the concerns of safety of students.
Muslim Student Attempts Suicide After Teachers Call Him A “Terrorist”
A Muslim boy of class 11 tried to commit suicide as his teachers were insulting him and calling him a “TERRORIST”. He studies in Delhi Public School, Kalyanpur, Kanpur UP. He took phenyl and sleeping pills at his house in Swaroop Nagar and tried to end his life. On 23rd September, on the night he was admitted to the hospital.
The student’s name was Arsh and he blamed the school management and said he was insulted in school for being a Muslim.
Arsh wrote a suicide note in which he wrote, school teachers and principal called him a terrorist. In the note, he requested CM Adityanath to punish the four teachers and principal. “Chief Minister Sir, I am not a terrorist but a student.”
His aim was to become a scientist like President APJ Abdul Kalam. His bag was searched every day. He was made to sit on the last bench of the class. If he ask anything then teacher used to send him out of the class. Because of the teachers, other students were also not talking to him.
