APCC strongly condemns teacher being forced to kneel down before students in Tinsukia

Guwahati : Assam Pradesh Congress Committee strongly condemned the shocking incident of a teacher of Philobori Senior Secondary School in Tinsukia district being compelled to kneel down before students protesting against raise of school fees.

What is even more shocking is that the incident happened with police personnel in the background who can be seen in the video that has gone viral on social media.

In a press statement, APCC leader Bobbeeta Sharma said that, teachers are revered all over the world  and to compel a teacher who had been in service of the school for 27 years to kneel and apologize publicly is a gross act of ultimate disrespect that cannot be excused.

"We have heard that government has ordered an enquiry into the matter but how can such an incident take place with police personnel present in the background is a big question. Why didn't they stop it? How can people of a civilized today watch such disrespect shown to a teacher? Is this the kind of soceity our children will inherit where insult of teachers and elders are watched silently and given sanction by keeping quiet on the spot," Bobbeeta Sharma said.

The Congress leader further said that, the Assam government while doing the enquiry should also take to task those persons who encouraged and actively or silently participated in this shocking insult of a teacher of Assam.]
