Mistake in Reciting Qur’an Leads to Caning and Hospital Visit for 10-Year-Old Boy

To Train Up a Child, special Islamic version:

An imam in Uttar Pradesh punished a 10-year-old boy with 170 push ups and then caned him, after he failed to recite a chapter from Quran correctly. The boy had to be treated in hospital after the beating. … The cleric beat the boy with a cane and sat on him, when he was unable to complete the press-ups due to exhaustion, the Times of India reported. The boy was admitted to hospital afterward.

The boy’s parents are understandably angry.

“We are appalled at the way the teacher has treated my son. Is this the way students are supposed to learn? The strictest punishment should be given to the teacher so that such incidents are not repeated,” said the victim’s father.

The teacher fled the area after the boy was taken to the hospital.
