Karachi police baton-charged and fired tear gas on a group of protesting teachers near the city’s press club, on Thursday (March 28). Police argued that they took the action to stop protesting teachers from marching towards Red Zone.
Around 2,500 government teachers from across Sindh were protesting outside the Karachi Press Club. Police took action against them after they started towards CM House.
After the incident the protesting teachers announced to boycott teaching starting today (Friday) throughout Sindh. The decision to boycott comes at a crucial time since the Board of Secondary Education (Matric) exams are scheduled to start April 1. “We are teachers not terrorists,” he said. Another protesting teacher added that they were ready to do whatever it takes for their rights.
