Why Young Student Get Allegedly Humiliated By The School?

Karachi student alleg humiliation at private school for speaking Urdu.

The father of the child created a video that has been going viral on social media in which he describes the incident in detail.

The child’s father said that his son was subjected to taunts at school for speaking Urdu and that black ink was painted on his face as retaliation for speaking in his native tongue.

The child’s father further claimed that his son was made fun of in front of other kids and that they were encouraged to tease him.

Additionally, the individual asserted that he had discussed the matter with the school administration. The management, however, asserted that it was powerless to intervene.

On the other hand, the Directorate of Private Schools became aware of the social media video and contacted the private school for a reaction.

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.

As the video spread on social media, many people condemned the behavior and referred to it as an assault on the child’s mental health and self-worth.

A user posted on Twitter,

“Speaking in Urdu has become a felony,” claiming that “a kid was humiliated and had black ink put to his face at Civilization School in Karachi for speaking in Urdu.”

Language Argument

The video brought to light a societal problem with the nation’s rapidly spreading English-prioritization culture.

There has been much discussion in social and cultural circles about how Pakistan, where English is one of the official languages, has been giving less emphasis to its national and regional languages.

Many contend that emphasizing English so much harms not only the development of the language but also students, whose first tongue is frequently not Urdu.
