Ateacher, working in a private school in Rajasthan (Udaipur), was expelled from her job after she expressed joy over Pakistan’s victory against India in Sunday’s T20I match.
The teacher, identified as one Nafeesa Attari, was expelled from the Neerja Modi School in Udaipur after she reportedly shared messages on WhatsApp supporting Pakistan in the T20 match.
According to photographs that were widely shared on social media, Attari posted photographs of Pakistani players and updated her status as ‘we won’. When she was asked if she supported Pakistan, the teacher replied by saying ‘yes’. When contacted, Attari said that it was a joke and that she and her family and friends had divided the teams between them.
When one of the parents asked the teacher whether she supported Pakistan, Nafeesa replied in the affirmative with a ‘Yes’.
After screenshots of the teacher’s status on WhatsApp spread, the school management expelled the teacher from her job.
FIR against Kashmiri students for celebrating Pakistan’s victory
In a separate incident, students of some of the Kashmiri universities were booked for celebrating Pakistan’s victory against India. In videos that were circulated widely on social media, students of Government Medical College (GMC) and Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) were purportedly seen celebrating Pakistan’s victory against India by raising anti-India slogans.
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut shared a video and said that slogans against India were raised during the visit of Home Minister Amit Shah. “It is certainly a matter of concern that Pakistan’s victory and India’s defeat in the T20 WC were celebrated in such a manner and anti-India slogans were raised, that too during Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s Kashmir visit. The central government should take this seriously. Jai Hind!! Vande Matram!” he said in a tweet.
