Karnataka teacher tells Muslim students to go to Pakistan, faces with transfer

Bengaluru: The Karnataka Department of School Education and Literacy has taken action against a teacher named Manjula Devi following allegations that she made communal remarks against two Muslim students in Class 5.

The complaint, filed by A Nazrullah, a leader of the JD(S) political party in Shivamogga, alleges that she told the students to "go to Pakistan." The incident reportedly occurred during a class on August 31. The teacher scolded the students for unruly behavior, allegedly referencing their religion in a derogatory manner. "This is not your country; this is the country of Hindus. You should go to Pakistan. You are our slaves forever," reported The News Minute.

After the students informed their parents about the incident, local leaders were notified, and a preliminary investigation was conducted by the Block Education Officer, B Nagaraj. As a result, the Karnataka Department of School Education and Literacy transferred Manjula Devi and initiated a departmental inquiry. Manjula Devi has denied the allegations against her.

This incident follows a similar case in Uttar Pradesh, where a teacher at Neha Public School in the Muzaffarnagar district was caught on video encouraging students to slap their Muslim classmate for not studying. Legal action has been taken in that case as well.
