Supreme Court laments failure by State of UP to give counseling to Muslim student slapped by classmates

The Supreme Court was hearing a plea filed by Tushar Gandhi, the great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, seeking action against the school teacher, Tripta Tyagi.

Tyagi is said to have referred to a Muslim student’s religion and spoken pejoratively about Muslim children while asking his classmates to beat him hard. The video of the incident went viral on social media. The private school school in question in Khubbapur village was later sealed.

The teacher, meanwhile, released a video statement asserting that while she may have made a mistake, there was no communal angle to the incident.

Amid the public outrage that erupted over the incident, Tushar Gandhi moved the Supreme Court seeking a time-bound and independent probe, as well as remedial actions to tackle violence against school children including those belonging to religious minorities.
