Instructor Burns Girls With Red Hot Poker at Madrassa School

The BBC reported, via ROP:

Police in Bangladesh are looking for a teacher from a Muslim religious school who allegedly placed burning hot iron rods on the legs of her students for failing to offer prayers regularly. They say 14 girls, aged between eight and 12, received burn injuries.

The school has been temporarily closed following the incident, while the “hellish experience” of the girls has been widely reported in newspapers. Their injuries are not thought to be serious. The Bangladeshi government banned all corporal punishment in all educational institutions, including religious schools – or madrassas – in 2010.

“I was shocked to see the burn injury of my daughter,” Jumur Akhter, mother of one of the affected students, told the BBC. The girls were learning Arabic and Bengali at the Talimul Koran Mahila madrassa at Namashyampur in Dhaka. The incident is said to have happened on Tuesday.
