UP: Urdu teacher forces students in government school to greet him with ‘Salam Alaikum’, show cause notice issued

The Basic Education Department in Uttar Pradesh had to intervene in July when it was found that the word 'Islamia' was prefixed in the name of a government school.

An incident has come to light in Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh, where people have complained about an Urdu teacher who is allegedly forcing students to greet him in Urdu only. Ishtiaq Khan, is an Urdu teacher in a government school in Sandila. According to the complaints he forced the students in the school to greet him with “Salam Alaikum” only.

Hemant Rao, Basic Education Officer, Hardoi informed that a show cause notice has been sent to the Urdu teacher and if his response is not satisfactory, action will be taken against him.

The Basic Education Department in Uttar Pradesh had to intervene in July when it was found that the word ‘Islamia’ was prefixed in the name of a government school. The school’s attendance register, admission registers and teacher’s attendance registers were being maintained in the Urdu language and the school had also started following weekly off on Fridays. The headmaster of the government school Khurshid Ahmed renamed it as ‘Islamia Primary School’ on the ground that most of the students studying in the school were Muslims.

The Basic Education Department, on coming to know of such schools, identified such government schools whose names were changed in this way and started removing the communal prefixes.
