Uttar Pradesh: School principal beats up students for not greeting him with ‘As-Salaam-Alaikum’, FIR lodged

Chand Mian, the principal of the school had allegedly demanded that students of the school wish him with Islamic greeting “As-Salaam-Alaikum”, which means "Peace be upon you". Reportedly, he would beat up students who instead wished him “good morning”.

In a horrific incident, a principal of a secondary school in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh allegedly beat up students for not greeting him with “As-Salaam-Alaikum”. Reportedly, the principal has been now suspended and a case has been filed against him.

Chand Mian, the principal of the school had allegedly demanded that students of the school wish him with Islamic greeting “As-Salaam-Alaikum”, which means “Peace be upon you”. Reportedly, he would beat up students who instead wished him “good morning”.

Priyanshu, a class VI student of the Bilhari Secondary School in Tilhar, along with other locals met the Principal secretary and nodal officer of the district, Dimple Verma and complained against the school principal that the students were allegedly beaten up by the principal for failing to greet him with “As-Salaam-Alaikum”. The student reportedly showed injury marks on his neck to the visiting official.

The student was sent for medical examination and the preliminary inquiry report has been submitted to Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA), Rakesh Kumar. “Principal Chand Mian has prima facie been found guilty of the charges and suspended…further inquiry is on,” Kumar said.

The police have lodged an FIR against Chand Mian, who is also suspended from the school. Ashok Pal, SHO of Tilhar said that an FIR has been registered against Mian after of Priyanshu’s mother Kamla raised a complaint.

We had earlier reported a similar incident in Kerala, when the principal of a government school in Pallakad had issued a diktat, threatening the students with expulsion if they are found to be using religious symbols like kumkum on their foreheads or sacred threads on their wrists. Earlier, a government school run by an evangelical Christian affected an order on girl students not to wear flowers and bindi.
