On October 14, the administration had suspended Ali after native VHP members complained that he made college students recite a spiritual prayer on the morning meeting. They had alleged that the actual prayer is recited in madrasas.
But, an inquiry by Bisalpur’s Block Education Officer (BEO), Upendra Kumar, had discovered that Ali made college students recite the poem ‘lab pe aati hai dua’, written in 1902 by the poet Muhammad Iqbal, who additionally wrote ‘sare jahan se accha’.
According to a press release issued by district administration, the report said that in conversations with kids, it was discovered that the nationwide anthem and the prescribed prayer “woh shakti humein do dayanidhi” was never sung on the faculty. “The children said that they were never made to sing the national anthem or the prescribed poem after they recited ‘lab pe aati hai dua’. The new teachers have been making the children recite the national anthem and the other prayer in the last two or three days,” mentioned the assertion. It mentioned that on the day the probe was performed, 53 out of complete 267 college students had been current.
The assertion mentioned the standard of schooling was discovered to be “unsatisfactory”. “When college students of Class V had been advised to put in writing some easy English and Hindi phrases, they may not. They mentioned that they had been solely imparted classes orally. None of the scholars may inform the identify of the president, prime minister and chief minister. Students of Class V couldn’t write phrases like ‘gyan prakash” or “Hindustan”. The college students lacked self-discipline,” the assertion mentioned.
