Kerala Education Minister V Sivankutty on Monday said his government is ready to fund the education of the Muslim child who was slapped by his classmates on orders of his teacher in a school in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar. The incident drew nationwide outrage after a video of the child’s ordeal was shared on social media.

"Kerala is ready to take up the education of the child who was beaten up by his classmates in the school in Muzaffarnagar. Our state is committed to embracing secular ideas," the minister said while speaking to the media in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

Sivankutty said that the Kerala state administration will provide all kinds of help to the child if his parents agree to it. “I heard that school (in Muzaffarnagar) is going to be shut. That child will not be able to study in that school again. Kerala will

provide all the facilities for the child to study here, if the child's father and mother are willing. Let them think about it. But we want to inform that the education department is ready to adopt the child and teach him here,” he added.

He also highlighted how his government is providing educational aid to a victim of the Manipur violence. "Kerala is teaching a child from a riot-hit area of ​​Manipur by enrolling her in a government school in the state. The state had also released additional text books incorporating the sections removed by the NCERT,” he said, pointing out that Kerala is a state that thinks and works in a progressive way.

Shivankutty had earlier written a letter to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, urging him to take strict action against the teacher involved in the harassment of the student.
