Everyone knows what Corporal Punishment is. Well, if you don’t, go and learn. I am not gonna tell you.
People have been protesting against the ‘Corporal Punishment’ for quite some time now.
Corporal Punishment is illegal in schools in most of the countries except Australia and a few states in the US.
People have been asking for complete ban against Corporal Punishment.
Research has shown that corporal punishment in the classroom is not an effective practice, and can cause more harm than good. Research has also shown that more students of color and students with disabilities experience instances of corporal punishment more than their peers.
I feel Corporal Punishment should be allowed in every setting. The infants, the children, the adults; everyone should be subject to ‘Corporal Punishment’.
Recently, it was brought to my notice that whenever God does something bad, he is testing us. The accidents, deaths, etc. Those are all tests.
One might see it as a form of Corporal Punishment.
So, if God is allowed to punish his Children to teach them important lessons and test them, why aren’t the teachers?
As far as I know, Kabir considered a teacher and god as equals. He said:
‘Guru Govind Dou Khade, Kaake Laagun Paaye. Balihari Guru Aapne, Govind Dio Bataye.
“If both, Teacher and God were to appear at the door, whose feet will I touch first?” He answers, “It has to be the Teacher’s feet, because without him, how would I have recognized
Now, if you believe in god and all that stuff, you gotta protest against the ban on Corporal Punishment.
Or you have to start protesting against god to stop his corporal punishment.
Book of Genesis 2:17
God tells Adam “But of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat of it, for on the day that you eat thereof, you shall surely die.”
The guy is handing out death penalties for eating fruits.
Quran – Surah al-‘Araf Verse 96
“And if the people of the towns had believed and kept from evil, We would have certainly opened up for them blessings from the heaven and the earth, but they belied; so We seized them for what they used to earn.”
This is basically saying, if you don’t do as you are told in class, you’ll be made to run 20 rounds of the field. Just a bit more extreme.
“If you become conscious of Me, you will pass over all the obstacles of conditioned life by My grace. If, however, you do not work in such consciousness but act through false ego, not hearing Me, you will be lost.”
That sounds like a condition. Like the ones schools have. If you don’t behave in a certain way, you will be punished and stuff. No?
Stop the Hypocrisy.
Teachers and God are equal. I mean, Kabir said that. You got to agree with that guy at least.
Either let the Corporal Punishment continue or just go and start protesting against your dearest god. Please!
P.S. People! It’s high time now. You have to take a stand.
