There seems to be no end to violence in West Bengal over the issue of ‘Jai Shree Ram’. In a shocking incident, a class-I student has been allegedly brutally thrashed by his school teacher for chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’.
Reportedly, the incident took place in Sri Ramakrishna Sikshalaya in West Bengal’s Howrah district on Wednesday. As per reports, the teacher beat up the 7-year old child, Aaryan Singh for chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ in the school premises. Following the incident, the teacher has gone absconding.
The father of the victim said that his son raised slogans only after other students had raised the slogan in the school. The father of the victim said that it was only his son who was brutally beaten up by the teacher.
Victim’s father also alleged that his school teacher warned him not to raise the slogan in school or outside. He alleged that the incident has made the child extremely nervous.
No FIR has been filed yet with the police by the school authorities against the teacher. Interestingly, the school is sponsored by CM Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government.
“The sir hit our child and asked him not to say ‘Jai Shree Ram’ whether in school or outside. He’s almost 7 years old and I’ve never seen him this nervous. He’s a courageous kid and I’ve always encouraged him. He does not want to go to school out of fear. We’ve scolded him so many times but have never seen such behaviour,” Republic TV quoted the father of the victim.
Recently, West Bengal government led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had to face a huge backlash after they had objected to raising of ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogans in the state. Mamata Banerjee had to face a severe public outcry after she had lashed out at the public for chanting Hindu religious symbols in her presence at North Paragana district.
Later, she had also unleashed her state police force to arrest few people for chanting Jai Shree Ram slogans in the state.
Shockingly, a BJP worker was also allegedly stabbed by Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers for chanting Jai Shree Ram in Panduranga village of East Burdwan district’s Ketugram area on May 30, 2019.
The hatred against Hindus is not just limited to political circles but it has now crossed beyond the country’s borders. The unifying slogan seems to have unnerved the liberal-left and Islamists, who are ganging up to propagate hatred narrative against the Hindus.
