Students offer namaz in UP school, principal suspended

Lucknow: Principal of a government primary school in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow has been suspended for permitting a group of students to offer namaz on the school campus.

“Offering namaz on school premises is against departmental guidelines,” a district-level education officer said.

The action was taken on Saturday after a video purportedly showing a group of students offering namaz on the school campus went viral on social media.

“Some children offered namaz at the Primary School Napier Road, Basic Shiksha Nagar Area-4, Lucknow, on Friday which is contrary to departmental guidelines. Other teachers of the school have also confirmed it,” said Lucknow basic shiksha adhikari (BSA) Arun Kumar.

According to a report of the investigating officer, the principal Meera Yadav was suspended with immediate effect under the Uttar Pradesh Government Servant (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 1999.

“Moreover, a separate strict warning has also been issued to other teachers of the school -- Tehzeeb Fatima and Mamta Mishra -- considering them accomplices in the said act,” the BSA said.
