Human chain of students protesting the assault of the head teacher in Gobindganj
The students, parents and local public of the school organized a human chain and protested against the assault of Shariful Islam, headmaster of Harirampur Bimukhi High School of Gobindganj Upazila, Gaibandhar on Monday in the school campus.
On Tuesday (January 3) in the school campus in the middle of a conflict over the managing committee, the external and local identified terrorists, led by assistant teacher Jahangir Alam of Krogacha BL High School, assaulted the head teacher Shariful Islam and this human chain and protest was held.
The female students present in the human chain said that without announcing the results of our annual examination, the alleged president Bacha Mia Sarkar and his wife Chameli Begum, the alleged acting head teacher, created a chaotic atmosphere on the day of the book festival on January 1. On that day our Head Teacher Shariful Islam Sarkar and Academic Supervisor distributed the books. Angered by this, in our presence on Monday, the relatives of the president and the acting headmaster and their mercenary terrorists beat and injured the headmaster Shariful Islam Sir. We strongly condemn this incident and demand exemplary punishment for the culprits.
Local UP member Feroze Kabir said that chaos has arisen in the institution since Honorable Member of Parliament Engineer Manowar Hossain Chowdhury gave DO letters to several people. As a result of which the alleged president Bacha Mia and his wife Chameli Begum (assistant teacher of the primary school branch) are trying to run the institution by illegally appointing acting head teachers. They assaulted the headmaster on Monday using muscle power. I demand that the institution be managed by a real head teacher in a speedy resolution of the situation and in the safety and orderly environment of the students and teachers.
It is to be noted that before the end of the term of the managing committee until December 11, 2019, three DO letters were given to two local people by the local parliamentarian, Engineer Monowar Hossain Chowdhury. As a result, when there was chaos in the formation of the committee, the chairman of the previous committee Akhtarul Islam challenged the DO letter of the MP, His Highness High Court issued a permanent ban on 16 January 2022. Even though this is going on, Bacha Mia government with DO letter illegally formed an ad hoc committee from Dinajpur Education Board on 6th February 2022 and later on 6th June 2022, violating the rules of the educational institution and is trying to manage the institution by assigning his wife Chameli Begum, a primary level teacher, as acting head teacher.
