‘Welcome Party Is UnIslamic’: Student Stabs Teacher To Death Over Argument In Class
A student in Bahawalpur stabbed his teacher multiple times over an argument about the upcoming university Welcome Party, which the student argued was ‘unIslamic’. The teacher was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his wounds.
According to reports, Professor Khalid Hameed of Government Sadiq Edgerton College was stabbed by his student Khateeb Hussain (5th semester of BS English) during class this morning after they had a heated argument over ‘Welcome Party’.
Khateeb said that the Welcome Party was against the teachings of Islam while the teacher was in support of organizing the event.
“Another life senselessly lost to the religious rot our system stuffs into our children’s brains,” says activist Ammar Rashid.
