MUZAFFARNAGAR – The shocking incident that unfolded at Neha Public School in Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh has triggered outrage across the nation. The All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) has issued a powerful statement condemning the incident and calling for unity against the rising tide of hatred and violence against minorities.

On August 24, a distressing video emerged, showcasing a class of primary school students being subjected to a horrifying exercise in hate. The video captures Tripta Tyagi, a teacher and owner of Neha Public School, instructing young students to physically assault one of their classmates simply because he belongs to the Muslim community. The chilling footage is accompanied by Tyagi’s venomous comments targeting the Muslim community, underscoring the disturbing indoctrination taking place within the school’s walls.

In response to the video, AIDWA released a statement on Saturday, urging democratic citizens of India to recognize the gravity of the incident and to take a stand against the epidemic of hatred that is spreading across the country. The association strongly condemned both the act of brutality itself and the attempts by the ruling establishment and parts of the mainstream media to downplay the incident as isolated.

The statement highlighted the distressing trend of minority and Dalit communities, particularly Muslims, falling victim to mob lynching by extremist groups aligned with Hindutva ideology. These incidents, often backed by implicit or explicit support from government and police bodies, have become alarmingly common, raising concerns about the safety and security of vulnerable communities.

AIDWA’s statement also emphasized the broader impact of the incident on the national psyche, stating that the trauma experienced by the assaulted child mirrors the state of the nation itself. The organization drew attention to the toxic atmosphere of hatred and fear that has been cultivated, permeating various aspects of society, including school curricula, political speeches, media coverage, and more.

Calling for solidarity and resistance against the prevailing majoritarianism, AIDWA urged citizens to unite in holding the central and state governments accountable for the wounds inflicted upon the nation. The organization’s statement called for an end to the divisive ideology that is attempting to take root as the official narrative of the country, while also highlighting the need to protect innocent children from being engulfed by hatred and fear.

As the nation grapples with the disturbing incident at Neha Public School, AIDWA’s powerful message serves as a call to action for citizens across India to confront the alarming trajectory of hatred and intolerance, and to work collectively to build a society that upholds the values of inclusivity, compassion, and justice.
