Gurukul Vidyapeeth terminates teacher for asking “how to identify kids if they are covered in hijab/scarf/burqa”: AP

A teacher was terminated (archived tweet) from her job in Kadapa’s Gurukul Vidyapeeth for simply raising a question about the hijab/burqa.

Teacher fired by Gurukul Vidyapeeth

The teacher identified as N Varalakshmi was served the termination notice on September 2. The letter says the teacher’s services were being terminated due to ‘certain undeniable circumstances’. The termination notice adds that her ‘misconduct’ with students and their parents was unacceptable and hence she was being fired.


Even though the termination letter signed by headmaster NM Chandra does not specify the ‘circumstances’, according to available information the teacher had only questioned how to identify children if they covered themselves with hijabs/scarfs/burqas.

While she had only asked a question, the students supposedly told their parents that Varalakshmi had asked them to remove their hijabs. The parents in turn created a ruckus and raised the issue with the principal. When the principal questioned the teacher she raised the aforementioned question following which she was terminated.

One important point here besides the principal bending over backwards to please Muslims is the fact that none of the fellow Hindu parents came forward to support Varalakshmi.

Anti-Hindu actions by schools

On the one hand, Gurukul Vidyapeeth bends over backwards for Muslims and on the other numerous schools punish Hindu students for sporting Hindu symbols and practicing Hindu Dharma.

Recently, Holy Family Convent School in UP’s (Uttar Pradesh) Bareilly District cut off Rakhis sported by Hindu students saying Hindu Dharma shall not be preached in the school. The incident was reported just a day after the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) issued a circular to the school asking them to refrain from punishing students for wearing Rakhi, mehendi, and Tilak after Raksha Bandhan.

A minor Hindu student studying in a government school in Kautha city of Jammu and Kashmir was mercilessly beaten by teacher Farooq Ahmed for writing ‘Jai Shri Ram’ on the blackboard. He was later admitted to a hospital.

This July, a 17-year-old Hindu student studying in the tenth standard committed suicide after she was slapped, humiliated and expelled from St. Xavier’s School for sporting a bindi. The incident took place in the Teltulmari neighbourhood in the Dhanbad city of Jharkhand.

On 18 July 2023, a teacher at the government-aided missionary school called Carmel High School thrashed a student studying in ninth standard for sporting a sacred thread (Kalawa) on his wrist to school. The incident occurred in Bokaro Thermal Town in the Bokaro district of Jharkhand.

Muslim classmates of Government Higher Secondary School in Chauma village in the Alwar district of Rajasthan assaulted a Hindu student and their family members on July 27 because the latter sported tilak. The victim was intimidated by his classmates, who also tried to remove the tilak from his forehead.

On August 24 of this year, an incident involving a school teacher named Udaya Lakshmi from Tamil Nadu came to light. In a since-deleted Facebook post, she claimed to have forcibly removed the sacred threads (Kalawas) from the wrists of Hindu students. According to her Facebook post, Lakshmi stated that she gathered Hindu students and removed their Kalawas against their will. Furthermore, she boasted about influencing these young students’ beliefs by discouraging them from adorning Hindu symbols like the Kalawa.

On August 26, at Ujra Government School in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur district, two teachers, Bhupendra Verma and Shafiq Khan, physically assaulted a Hindu Class 11 student for wearing a kada, a sacred bracelet. Despite the student’s explanation of its religious significance, the teachers forcibly removed and discarded the kada in a drain. They further humiliated the student by making him stand on a desk and threatened to fail him in exams.

The stark contrast in which Hindus are treated in comparison to others highlights the deep-seated anti-Hindu bias in ‘Hindu majority’ Bharat. It also points out how Hindus have simply accepted such discrimination instead of uniting against these unacceptable acts.
