Currently, the entire nation is experiencing the beginning of a very hazardous trend. Hindus have been attacked by Islamists in various ways. In addition, efforts are being made to eradicate the toxin of religious fundamentalism from the nation’s institutions and universities. It is evident that everywhere, the educational content is shifting more and more toward Islamization.
In Jharkhand, a similar situation can be noted. Under Hemant Soren’s leadership, the uproar of Islamists in the state is at its height. Where efforts are currently being made to impart community flavour to traditions that have long existed in schools.
Children in Jharkhand’s Garhwa were first forbidden from praying with their hands folded, and then the issue of granting them vacation time on Friday rather than Sunday was raised by writing in Urdu on the board of the government schools in Jamtara.
On the other side, a teacher in the Giridih district physically assaulted a student for writing ‘Jai Shri Ram’ on the school’s blackboard. Sadar Block’s Palamo Panchayat is involved in the issue. Mohd. Abul Kalam, the head of the school, was charged with beating the student. The boy had written Jai Shri Ram on the classroom blackboard on July 8, but the beating happened on July 9, according to a report in Prabhat Khabar. Following that, the parents of the students had a meeting where they accused the teacher, Abul Kalam, of forcing their kids to clean the restroom and wash the toilet.
According to Prabhat Khabar, a fourth-grade student wrote “Jai Shri Ram” on July 8. Teacher Mohd. Abul Kalam claims that the accusation of beating the student is unfounded in this entire situation. On the blackboard, there was nothing but profane writing instead of Jai Shri Ram. The District Education Officer has also announced the formation of a team to examine the situation, which will visit the school and conduct an investigation as well as take action against the offenders, in response to the parents’ uproar.
Ironically, some people now consider chanting “Jai Shri Ram” to be a felony, which is unfortunate for Hindus. Islamists have in fact recently instigated terror in Jharkhand. In this, both schools and kids are the targets. But it is the state’s Chief Minister, Hemant Soren, who has the authority and accountability to put a stop to such behaviour.
