Experts from Karachi said that Pakistani officials have barred the registration of a school here after some students danced to an Indian song and waved India’s national flag during a cultural event, hurting the country’s “national dignity”. Meanwhile, a show cause notice was allotted to the school’s owner on Wednesday to appear before the Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions Sindh (DIRPIS).
As per the report the last week’s incident came to spotlight after a video of the function went viral on social media, facing severe critique from people. Furthermore the registration of the ‘Mama Baby Care Cambridge School’ has been rejected for supposedly promoting Indian culture. Reportedly the DIRPIS has formed a three-member committee to probe into the school’s function in which pupils were dancing on an Indian song and hailing national flag of India in the background.
Furthermore, DIRPIS registrar Rafia Javed, “promoting Indian culture in educational institutions was against Pakistan’s national dignity which could not be tolerated in any circumstances”. Presumably, the action was taken when the directorate came to know that the school had intentionally arranged such a function was an event in which pupils presented the customs of Saudi Arabia, the US, Egypt, Pakistan, India and other nations.
