In the video, the teacher can be seen asking the children to slap their classmate because he did not know the math table. She also makes various derogatory comments about Muslims. The boy can be seen crying as the other students slap him across the face.
Urmila Matondkar tweeted: “This woman is seriously ill and mentally unstable. People like this should not be allowed near children. Let alone be a teacher.” Meanwhile, Renuka Shahane wrote: “That vile teacher should be behind bars! Instead she could get a national teacher award for promoting national integration! Kafkaesque!! Cry my beloved country.”
Hello @X @TwitterIndia Can I know exactly why my tweet was confirmed? Neither the language nor the thought behind it is derogatory towards anyone. I’m not spreading fake news like most everyone else. So, is this just establishment pressure? pic.twitter.com/f3Kv4hZhXp

Furthermore, Swara Bhasker wrote a note saying, “Making the father of the child victim of Muzaffarnagar @muzafarnagarpol write and sign that he will not take legal action against a teacher named Tripta Tyagi is just an attempt to save the accused teacher.” The video is evidence that a felony has been committed under the POCSO Act. DO YOUR JOB, Muzaffarnagar Police!”
