A student harassed in Karachi for speaking urdu in school.

Student harassed in school for speaking urdu.

The child’s father said that his kid was subjected to taunts and punishment for speaking in Urdu in class, including having black ink painted on his face.

Additionally, the child’s father said that other kids were encouraged to tease his son and that he was made fun of in front of them.

The individual also asserted that he had brought up the matter with the school administration. However, the management asserted that it was powerless to intervene.

On the other hand, the Directorate of Private Schools was alerted to the social media video and requested a response from the private institution.

The incident has not yet been confirmed or refuted, according to the directorate, but a three-person committee has been established to look into it.
