Posted November 12, 2019 09:51:11A school teacher in a western Punjab province is facing a backlash after posting images of her children’s photos on Facebook, which have been deemed inappropriate.
“My children and I had just finished a day of lessons in a rural area.
I was on my way home, when I received a call from my friend,” said Suresh Prasad, who teaches in a government-run school in the town of Jansi.
The photos were taken in his classroom.
They show children wearing their school uniforms, and two are wearing masks.

“I didn’t want any trouble, just because I wanted to show the kids how much I love them,” he said.
Suresh’s mother, who works as a school teacher, said the family was horrified.
“We have been seeing a lot of incidents of kids wearing masks in school, and I’m sure these are the kids who have had a lot to drink,” she said.
“The only reason I saw these photos is because I was visiting my children and they were crying.”
She said the pictures could have been made for political purposes, and the images could have made people think differently about children in the same situation.
“This could have happened in any area, even a small one, and it is not acceptable.
If you take this picture and post it on Facebook or anywhere, then this is not a normal photo of a child,” she told the Times of Israel.
