“The teacher, Manjula Devi, has been accused of making the remark to the two Class 5 students at the school located in Tipu Nagar. The department took action against her following a complaint by Shivamogga JD(S) leader A Nazrullah,” reported The Indian Express.

The report quoting Parameshwarappa C R, Deputy Director of Public Instruction (Shivamogga), said that the teacher was transferred pending departmental inquiry.

“The teacher said during the initial probe that she was disciplining the students as they were unruly in class and were not respecting her,” Parameshwarappa was quoted as having said.

“In his complaint, Nazrullah alleged that Manjula, while scolding the two students, told them that India is not ‘your country’. This a country of Hindus. You should go to Pakistan,” the report mentioned.

The report said the students returned home after school and reported the incident to their parents, who in turn alerted local leaders. 

After a complaint was registered, the block education officer conducted a preliminary probe and submitted a report, the report added.
