Pupils of a girls’ primary school near Ahwaz, southern Iran, were punished for speaking their mother tongue in class.

On Iran’s national Student Day, November 4, one of the teachers of Hamza Primary School for Girls, noticed that her pupils were speaking together in Arabic.

So, she yelled at the students and punished them by forcing them to write 100 times, “We should avoid speaking Arabic in class.”

Hamza Primary School is located in Beit Mahareb village in the periphery of Ahwaz where the inhabitants speak Arabic. (Farsi – November 5, 2017)
