FAISALABAD: 

The headmistress of a government primary school in Chak 228-GB, a Samundri Saddar police precinct, allegedly thrashed a Christian student for using the school washroom used by Muslim students for Muslim students. 

According to media reports, some of Sara Bibi’s classmates had alerted the headmistress that she had used the washroom. The headmistress had then beaten Sara Bibi up and locked her in the washroom for three hours, till the school closed for the day. Samundri Saddar SHO Muhammad Afzal said they had not received a complaint in this regard. He said they would take action if someone filed a complaint.

EDO Bashir Zahid Goraya said he could not comment on the matter because he was not aware of the facts of the case. He said they had formed a committee to investigate the report. “We do not allow any form of discrimination on the basis of faith, caste or creed at our schools.” Maulana Asad Khan, the khateeb of Jamia Masjid at Ghulam Muhammadabad, says Islam did not prohibit people of other faiths from sharing washrooms with Muslims. “If the school headmistress has beaten up the girl for using the washroom, we strongly condemn this act.”
