Hindu teacher forces students to slap 8-year-old Muslim student

In a deeply disturbing incident in Uttar Pradesh state, a Hindu teacher forced students to slap an 8-year-old Muslim student to the point where he was crying. In a video of the incident, the teacher, Tripta Tyagi, orders several students to slap the Muslim child and scolds one student for not hitting the victim hard enough. 

Tyagi can also be heard making anti-Muslim comments, saying, “Muslim students whose mothers do not pay attention to their education, their education will be destroyed.” The child later reported that Tyagi also said, “Muslims should be beaten up.”

The video has sparked immediate outrage among the Muslim community, as well as activists and politicians. The victim’s father plans to press charges against Tyagi for the incident, and the school has also announced that it will take action.
