In India, in many area's, society is divided on the lines of Caste. Society is divided among the upper caste people & lower caste people. Upper class people look down upon the lower caste people. But what would you call to the act of an upper caste lady teacher at a Zilla Parishad higher middle school in 'Surewada' village in Maharashtra state of India, who sprinkled ‘gomutra’ (cow’s urine) on students and inside the classrooms to “purify’’ them and drive out an “evil spirit’’ from the premises.

As per one Times of India report:

"The ZP school runs classes from first to seventh standard and has 210 students, including 20 Dalit students. Last month, Tilottama Tembhurkar, headmistress of the school, who belongs to a ‘lower’ caste, was transferred but not relieved of her charge. However, teachers from the upper caste believed that Tembhurkar’s presence was inauspicious for the school.

In the last week of March, Tembhurkar handed over charge to senior teacher Sharad Kaitade (an upper caste). In early April, when he formally took over as the school headmaster, Kaitade allegedly performed a puja in the school and asked a lady teacher Madhavi Raut to sprinkle gomutra inside the classes and school premises.

Raut promptly went around the school premises and classes sprinkling cow urine—while the students were appearing for their annual exam. She entered the class where Dalit students were also solving the question paper.

Raut allegedly asked the Dalit students to get up and sprinkled ‘gomutra’ on them, saying it would “purify’’ them. However, while doing so, some of it fell on the answer sheets and the students’ faces too. Feeling humiliated, the students narrated the incident to their parents, who along with other villagers, registered a protest with Kaitade. "

Oh God! What a weird act which happened in this 21st century scientific age!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
