Singer and songwriter Shahzad Roy has made a name for himself through music and off-screen social work since 2013 and campaigned for children’s rights. On following day, singer Mukhra took him to Twitter to express his thoughts on the recent ban on corporal punishment in small words and the big punishment for offenders. The prohibition does not only apply to physical violence. But also prohibits the cruel, degrading and degrading treatment of children by people at work, in schools and other institutions.
Roy begins: “In this video, I target kids who attend school or madrasa. A teacher or instructor who will roll your ears, slap your face, or show aggression … yes, kids, good news for you! All of this will never happen to you again. “
He praised the law passed by the National Assembly. “What you have just seen is that government officials, on your behalf, decided to prohibit cruelty to physical torture in schools and religious institutions.”
The 44-year-old also said those present likely experienced the same trauma. “Parents are the first to physically abuse children, followed by teachers and finally the authorities. So far, child development has centered on the relationship between discipline and physical violence. This leads to a violent society.”
Shahzad Roy ended with a plea to all parents and children. “I urge parents to stop abusing children, starting with them at home. Any child observing this will warn your teacher … If they accidentally contact you, a law has been passed to keep you safe.” “
Pakistan’s National Assembly lauds Roy’s support. “Corporal punishment affects children’s mental and physical development, as well as educational activities. The spokesman said the efforts of the famous singer and social activist, head of the Zindagi Trust, Shehzad Roy, to reduce physical violence against children are trustworthy.”
