Head Of NDMC-Run School Suspended For Segregating Hindu And Muslim Students

247

New Delhi: While denouncing the action as ‘unimaginable’ and ‘unpardonable’, the head of an NDMC-run school in north Delhi’s Wazirabad has been placed under suspension for ‘segregating students’ into Hindu and Muslim sections.

“I was apprised of the allegations of students being segregated by our officials. We decided to probe the accusations, and unfortunately they were found to be true. We have suspended the head of the school with immediate effect and initiated major penalty charge sheet against him,” North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) Commissioner MadhupVyas said.

The Commissioner said the conduct of the official was “bizarre” and “unpardonable” and “goes against the grain of our pluralistic society”.

C B Singh Sehrawat, a teacher, was made in-charge of the school in July after its principal was transferred, NDMC’s Director of Education H K Hem said, adding a three-member probe team was sent to investigate the allegations.

The commissioner said, “During our probe, it was found that it was the school-in-charge only, who had initiated this segregation. These are children coming from poor background and such acts would have deleterious effects on them. We will not tolerate such things, it is unpardonable.” The primary school falls in Wazirabad area of north Delhi and is administered by the BJP-ruled NDMC. The area comes under the Civil Lines Zone of the civic body.

Mayor of North Delhi Adesh Gupta said the school in-charge was “found to be guilty in preliminary investigation”.

“Social divide on the basis of caste, community or religion would not be tolerated in the schools of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation. NDMC follows the spirit of the Constitution. If any such divide is found to be in practice, it would be rectified immediately and strict action would be taken against those found guilty,” the mayor said.

All municipal corporation-run schools in Delhi are primary schools. Teachers in other municipal schools expressed shock over it.

“Schools, primary level no less, should be kept away from politics, and religion and caste matters should not be mentioned, for a balanced growth of a child. When a student enters a school, he or she is not a Hindu, Muslim or Sikh or Christian, but an Indian and that is how we should educate them,” a teacher in a civic school in Karol Bagh said, on condition of anonymity.

“If the segregation is being done there, then it is condemnable, and we strongly disapprove of it. Schools should unite and not divide people, and these children are such impressionable minds, it will not bode well for their growth,” he said.
