A seven year-old Pakistani boy was murdered by his seminary teacher for not memorizing his Koran lessons.
The BBC reported:
A student of a religious seminary in Pakistan’s Punjab province has died after he was punished by his teacher, police say.
Atif, seven, was hung upside down from a ceiling fan by Maulvi Ziauddin for not memorising his Koran lessons, his fellow students told the police.
Atif’s condition deteriorated quickly and he died in the teacher’s room. Maulvi Ziauddin has been arrested.
Human rights organisation say Pakistani children are often exposed to abuse.
