Following a complaint filed by A Nazrullah, a leader of the JD(S) party in Shivamogga, the Karnataka Department of School Education and Literacy has taken action against teacher Manjula Devi. She has been accused of instructing two Muslim students at a government school in Shivamogga to “go to Pakistan,” a claim she has denied.
Manjula Devi allegedly made this statement to two Class 5 students at the Tipu Nagar school. In response to the complaint, Parameshwarappa C R, Deputy Director of Public Instruction in Shivamogga, stated that the teacher has been transferred pending a departmental inquiry. He mentioned, “We received the complaint on Thursday, and action was initiated against the teacher based on a preliminary inquiry by the block education officer.”
