Compasion to Students (continues...)
The compassion displayed by our senior Ulama are examples of the high standards set by our pious predecessors. Presently, for trivial issues, students are beaten up so severely that one thinks that perhaps the ustaadh has got hold of his enemy and is now taking his lifelong revenge. Hadhrat Hakeemul Ummat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi alayh) had forbidden the ustaadhs from hitting the students even if they did not know their lessons. In the Madrasah that was attached to the Khanqah, Hadhrat (rahmatullahi alayh) was very firm that ustaadhs should never hit their students. The complaint should rather be forwarded to those in charge, who would thereafter mete out appropriate punishment to the offenders.
