    Thank you Minister for taking action on the Teacher promptly.

    It is important to take care of the child also as he was looking very traumatized, I hope he will be counselled so this incident will not have a lasting effect on his personality.

    circulating vedio is wrong, but there is not so greate crime by the teacher, he was teaching the student,
    and trying to correct his mistakes, if tomorrow a inspection officer comes to school and ask student same pronunciation by mistake with same student then officer will definitely take ride on teacher,
    so do not not politatise the issue, instead of suspension teacher must be warned for his mistake. he must be poor teacher will correct his mistakes.

    Correcting a student is one thing and making a video of it and circulating is another. Every one these days is obcessed with sharing videos. Sharing such videos should not go unpunished. Ask the teacher to pronounce a word used by Shashi Tharoor and lets see how good the teacher himself is. Record this video and circulate it, lets just see how the teacher would feel.
    Acts such as these are scarring innocents for life.

    Intention is here matters, his intention is to correct the student , there are many cases like sex abusing on students by teachers from teachers to student, beating harshly for that minister is not taken any actions, some are noticed some are un noticed,

    The investigation must also find out - whether the said teacher has any connection with self proclaimed nationalist organization or political party....!!!!

    The actions of teacher in question clearly reflect an act of intolerance.....!!!!
