After the disturbing video of a private school teacher from Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar asking her students to slap a Muslim kid went video, it sparked a major conversation across the nation. Amid this, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi reacted sharply to the viral video and questioned Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for not taking his famous ‘bulldozer action’ against the teacher for hate crime.

Asaduddin Owaisi reacts to viral video

Taking it to X (formerly known as Twitter), Owaisi has alleged that the father of the Muslim boy has withdrawn his son from the school and given in writing that he doesn’t want to pursue the matter because he knows he won’t get justice and instead it might vitiate the atmosphere.

In a tweet, the AIMIM chief wrote, “Who are these people who will ‘vitiate’ the atmosphere over a father seeking justice for his kid? It is an indictment of @myogiadityanath’s rule that people have no faith in due process. It is more likely that the teacher will get some govt award rather than being punished.”

“Section 75 of Juvenile Justice Act 2015 is clear. Why has @muzafarnagarpol must take action,” Owaisi added.

Alleging the viral video as a result of the last 9 years, he said, “The message being drilled into the minds of little children is that one can beat up & humiliate a Muslim without any repercussions.”

Further, he questioned the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and the National Human Rights Commission of India over this hate crime incident.

“@NCPCR_ & @India_NHRC are otherwise quick to take suo motu action but here they have done nothing. Reportedly, NCPCR is more concerned about the video getting viral rather than ensuring justice,” the Lok Sabha MP asked.

Moreover, Owaisi has raised a serious question against the state chief minister about his bulldozer action, he wrote in his tweet, “@myogiadityanath what happened to bulldozers and ‘thok do‘?”

Meanwhile, the NCPCR took cognisance of the viral video. In a tweet, its chairperson Priyank Kanoongo wrote in Hindi, “Taking cognizance, instructions are being issued for action, everyone is requested not to share the video of the child… do not become a part of the crime by revealing the identity of the children.”

UP Police initiates enquiry into this matter

The Uttar Pradesh Police has also initiated an enquiry into the depressing incident. The teacher, identified as Trapti Tyagi, can be seen asking Class 2 students in Muzaffarnagar’s Khubbapur village under the Mansurpur police station area to slap the 8-year-old Muslim child.

Further, the police have ensured to take strict action against both the persons (teacher and one who recorded the video) and also against the school management.
