Some of us may breathe a sigh of relief that Hriday Mondal, imprisoned for 19 days and denied bail twice, for trying to explain the difference between science and religion to his students, has been granted bail.
The investigation committee from education ministry has ascertained that the allegations against Hriday Chandra Mondal of hurting religious sentiments in the classroom at Binodpur Ram Kumar High School in Munshiganj were in fact false.
Hriday Chandra Mondal, who teaches maths and science at Binodpur Ram Kumar High School in Munshiganj, has returned to class today (April 19, 2022) after 28 days.
Hriday Mondal, a teacher of Binodpur Ram Kumar High School in Munshiganj Sadar, said that he will try to stay on as a teacher in the school only if the government provides him with full security, but if it could not, it will not be possible for him to continue doing his job.
“I will go back to the classroom and continue teaching my students. Forgiving them for their mistakes and helping them differentiate between right and wrong is my job.”
The office assistant, who filed the case against math teacher Hriday Chandra Mondal, said he had no say over the matter as the complaint was not written in his presence.
