A shocking incident has come to the fore where two minor girls were allegedly forced to strip and thrown out of their school in Bihar’s Begusarai district after their father failed to pay the fee for their school uniform on time, reported ANI. The incident occurred on Friday when Chunchun Sah went to pick up his daughters after school as a teacher asked Sah to get the money for the uniforms immediately.

Located in Sikraula village, B.R Education Academy school had given school uniforms to the two girls, who were supposed to pay back the money. “I pleaded for some time to deposit the fee, but the teacher stripped my daughters on the spot in front of everyone,” said Sah.

One of the girls was a Class I student, while the elder one was in Class II. Subsequently, Sah went to the police station and lodged an FIR against the accused. According to Sub-divisional police officer Rajesh Kumar, the principal and a female teacher have been arrested in connection with the case.

Meanwhile, state Education Minister Ashok Choudhary described the incident as insensitive, insisting that stern action would be taken against the school and the culprits.

    Do these minors understand why they have been stripped? It was not their fault at all. How can they punish so small and innocent kids like his. Shame on all the culprits.

          What can we expect from Nitish-Lallu Bihar? Such sick mentality promoted by Nitish-Lallu enterprise has degraded moral value of people of Bihar. Even criminal Lallu has a pride of being criminal.

              Since when is it logical or reasonable to punish children for the poverty of parents. Even if it was a case of deliberate failure on the part of the parents, why should children be punished. Is this just or fair? How do teachers and prin ls who may, in all likelihood, have children of their own act in such despicable manner? What a crying shame?

                Stripping clothes off children is much worse than mere "insensitivity". It is thoughtless cruelty and callous attack and humiliation that will cause more lasting damage to the children's self-esteem and mental well-being. Even calling it, in the popular and quaint terms, "outraging the modesty of girls/women" would be nearer accuracy than calling it "insensitive". That this can happen at all ought to outrage all thinking citizens. It will be interesting to see what our learned ministers and bureaucrats think of this and even more interesting to see what "stern action" is taken in the end if at all. This is shameful, period. The sad thing is the such teachers and prin ls are not the exceptions as they have plenty of fellow-travelers of the same ilk and inclination. Perhaps this is an indicator for the urgent need of a "Swatch Bharat" type of initiative in the field of education. That this happened in Bihar is the least surprising aspect.
