“I was pulled in an insulting way before the whole school. I told the principal that this was not the right way to treat anybody. So, he got upset and told me not to enter the school until I begged for forgiveness by touching his feet,” alleged Tariq. He also said that finally, he had to seek the help of the Ministry of Education, after which he was allowed to clear his Grade XII exams as a private student only. “Now the principal is targeting my younger brother, Musa Khan, who is a bright student and also wants him terminated for no particular reason,” he claimed. “For several days, I was kept waiting outside the school, and finally, I had to call the police to gain entry into the school,” alleged Tariq.


THE PRINCIPAL of Shaikh Rashid Al Maktoum Pakistani School, Dubai, Sayed Razi Shah Kazmi said: “Tariq Khan is an ill-disciplined child, and we have sent several reminders to his parents regarding his behaviour with teachers, and other school staff. Recently, he came and threatened me in my apartment, after which I lodged a police case against him,” he explained. “His brother Musa Khan is also a wild student like his brother,” he added.

Schools lead to traffic jams

MR JESSANI from Al Ain has complained about traffic problems in Al Ain, specially in the Al Manaseer area, as the shifting of a large numbers of schools to Manaseer has resulted in severe traffic jams and mess for the parents of students. He suggested that school timings should be flexible or the authorities should change office timings.


AN OFFICIAL from the Al Ain Educational Zone (AAEZ) said that the Ministry of Education (MoE) is responsible for the school timings. She added that gathering all private schools in one area in Al Manaseer was not on purpose. Meanwhile, an official from the Al Ain Traffic and Licence Department of the Al Ain Police said that the department offers three-four policemen in each roundabout to save residents lives and avoid traffic jams, especially in crowded areas like the schools in Al Manaseer. An official from the Al Ain Labour Office said that fixing office timings is the responsibility of the Ministry of Labour, adding that labour offices in different cities or emirates are not authorised to do so.

Gathering of bachelors in Rolla

MS SHOBHA complained about the gathering of bachelors near her residential area in Sharjah. She said: “We are living near Rotana Hotel in Rolla where women and girls can’t walk freely because of the groups of Asian bachelors gathering there from morning till late at night.


AN OFFICIAL from the Sharjah Municipality said that the municipality is aware of this issue and is currently working to move bachelors to the industrial areas. The solution would need time, so we advise residents to be patient until the municipality’s decision to move such bachelors from residential areas is implemented following the construction of camps for them.
