Pak teacher forced into hiding after ‘blasphemy’
Islamabad: A teacher in Pakistan at the centre of a blasphemy row has been forced into hiding as her school management denied all responsibility for the “dirty act” and called for her to be punished.
Arfa Iftikhar was accused of blasphemy after she gave a piece of homework that allegedly contained derogatory references to the Muslim prophet Mohammad Iftikhar was forced into hiding after a furious mob stormed Farooqi Girls’ High School in the eastern city of Lahore.
According to the Dawn, the school management has denied that it had any knowledge of the supposed insults to the prophet, saying Iftikhar distributed the work just 10 minutes before the school closed for the Eid al-Adha holiday.
“Our school management and the owners have no link whatsoever with this dirty act,” a newspaper advertisement by the school said.
“We appeal to the government and the police to take legal action against this teacher and investigate her real motive,” it added.
