Good Discipline?

Just a nice little story of how kiddies learn to say their prayers right in those peaceful Madrassas that it would be intollerant to call terrorist indocrination centers.

Dhaka, Sep 16 (IANS) A teacher in a madrassa in northern Bangladesh cut off the ears of 17 children with a pair of scissors because they were not reading their textbooks loudly.

Angry parents and guardians caught the teacher, Moulana Abdul Majid, from a nearby village in Bogra district and beat him up. Some elders rescued Majid and sent him to a nearby hospital.

The managing committee of the madrassa initially tried to hide the incident, which occurred Tuesday, but later admitted it and sacked Majid, the Bangla daily Prothom Alo reported Thursday.

Some 25 children, aged between five and eight and belonging to poor and middle-class families, study at the madrassa. The school’s only room was used both for classes and as a living quarter.

The children said Majid whipped them mercilessly for not reading their lessons at the top of their voices after afternoon prayers Tuesday.

“But it did not reduce his anger and he cut off our ears with a pair of scissors,” one of the students said.

The students attacked by Majid were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Ouch!! is right! He's lucky he just got beaten.

Perhaps you should post this in the "Effective punishment for students" thread in Lemonade Stand....

I said it would take generations to get rid of the terrorist mentality, and looks like we're losing another one already

I would not classify this as "discipline". This is torture.

Discipline has its place and, if used correctly, is an appropriate tool for development.

Toss the teacher back to the parents.
