A Muslim teacher is in hot water for the brutal beating of a 10-year-old student. According to the Times of India, the young boy could not recite a specific chapter from the Quran. Initially, the boy was ordered to do 170 push-ups for his failed attempt at reciting the central religious text of Islam. But, apparently, the Muslim teacher felt the boy’s inability to recite deserved a harsher punishment. The infuriated Muslim teacher allegedly beat the boy with a stick before sitting on his chest and pulling his hair. The boy has reportedly been hospitalized as a result of the brutal beating.
While specific details about the boy’s current condition have yet to be released, it has been reported that the Muslim teacher’s assault on the boy was so horrific that he passed out, reports Mad World News. The child was transported to a local hospital where he is reportedly in critical condition. Medical specialists have stated that the boy sustained “serious injuries in his ribs and backbone.”
Of course, the boy’s parents are outraged by the teacher’s horrific assault on the innocent child. During a brief interview with a local news station, the father voiced his frustration. Needless to say, the parents are seeking justice to ensure no other child suffers the same type of fate. “We are appalled at the way the teacher has treated my son. Is this the way students are supposed to learn? The strictest punishment should be given to the teacher so that such incidents are not repeated.”
Although the teacher has yet to be arrested, Mohd Qasim, an investigator with the Baradari Police Department, released a statement in reference to the situation. Qasim stated that the teacher would be “apprehended.” However, it is still unclear whether or not the Muslim teacher will face criminal charges for the brutal assault. “We have lodged a case against the teacher and two other madarsa staff under Section 325 of Indian Penal Code and investigations are on. The guilty would soon be apprehended.”
