“What About Bulldozers, ‘Thok do’?” Asaduddin Owaisi Questions CM Yogi About UP Teacher Video

Asaduddin Owaisi, a prominent figure from the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), strongly reacted to a viral video showcasing a school teacher in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar instructing her students to physically harm a boy belonging to a minority community. Owaisi also questioned Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s lack of action in line with his “bulldozer approach.”

Owaisi alleged that the father of the Muslim boy withdrew his son from the school and submitted a written statement explaining that he did not wish to pursue the matter due to a lack of faith in receiving justice. He believed that taking action might further deteriorate the social environment.

Expressing his concern, Owaisi tweeted, “Who are these people who will ‘vitiate’ the atmosphere over a father seeking justice for his kid? It is an indictment of @myogiadityanath’s rule that people have no faith in due process. It is more likely that the teacher will get some govt award rather than being punished.”

He pointed out the clarity in Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act 2015 and questioned why the Muzaffarnagar police had not taken action as required.

Owaisi asserted that the video from Muzaffarnagar is a result of the past nine years, implying a prolonged issue. He highlighted the troubling message being conveyed to young children: that it’s acceptable to physically harm and humiliate a Muslim without consequences.

The AIMIM leader also raised questions about the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) and the National Human Rights Commission of India’s response to the incident. He criticized their lack of proactive action despite their usual quick responses in similar situations.

The NCPCR eventually acknowledged the video, cautioning against sharing it due to concerns about child privacy.

The Uttar Pradesh Police initiated an inquiry into the incident, with Circle Officer Ravishankar sharing that the child seemed to have been beaten for incomplete schoolwork, and objectionable comments were made in the video.

Basic Shiksha Adhikari Shubham Shukla disclosed that the teacher in question and another individual were visible in the video, and efforts were underway to identify the second person. He assured that action would be taken against both individuals and the school management.

In response to the incident, Rahul Gandhi, a leader from the Congress party, expressed his dismay on social media, condemning the spread of discrimination among innocent children. He criticized the BJP for fostering division and called for a collective effort to teach love and tolerance.

Priyanka Gandhi, also from the Congress party, reflected on the choice between fostering hatred and pursuing progress, emphasizing that hatred is a significant obstacle to advancement.
