Islamabad High Court bans corporal punishment at schools

Islamabad (HRNW) The Islamabad High Court has banned corporal punishment at education institutes.

During a hearing on Thursday, Chief Justice Athar Minallah heard singer Shehzad Roy’s petition against corporal punishment. He told the court that last year, a student died after being beaten up at a school in Lahore.

In a message on Twitter on Wednesday, Roy said that our national imagination has been captured of late by the debate around public hanging for child rapists and legislation needed for child protection.
