Prakash Raj, Urmila Matondkar and other celebs condemn Muzaffarnagar teacher’s incitement of religious hatred in school
In the video, the teacher can be seen asking the children to slap their classmate because he did not know the maths table. She also makes several derogatory remarks about Muslims. The child can be seen crying as he is slapped by the other students.
Urmila Matondkar tweeted, “This woman is seriously sick and mentally unstable. Such people should not be allowed around children. Let alone being a teacher.” Meanwhile, Renuka Shahane, wrote, “That vile teacher should be behind bars! Instead, she might just get a national teacher’s award for promoting national integration! Kafkaesque!! Cry, my beloved country.”
Hello @X @TwitterIndia May I kindly know why exactly my tweet has been upheld? Neither the language nor the thought behind it is derogatory towards anyone. I’m not spreading any fake news like most others. So is it plain pressure from the establishment? pic.twitter.com/f3Kv4hZhXp

In addition, Swara Bhasker penned a note, which read, “Getting the father of the victim child from Muzaffarnagar @muzafarnagarpol to write and sign that he will not take legal action against a teacher named Tripta Tyagi is just an attempt to save the accused teacher. The video is proof that a serious crime has been committed under the POCSO Act. DO YOUR JOB Muzaffarnagar Police!”
मुज़फ़्फ़रनगर के उस पीड़ित बच्चे के पिता से @muzafarnagarpol द्वारा ये लिखवा लेना और साइन करवाना कि वे तृप्ता त्यागी नामक अध्यापक के ख़िलाफ़ क़ानूनी कार्यवाही नहीं करेंगे, महज़ आरोपी अध्यापिका को बचाने की कोशिश है। वीडियो प्रूफ़ है कि पॉक्सो इत्यादि क़ानून के तहत संगीन जुर्म हुआ…
