Cruel Punishment of Two 12-Year-Old Students Leads to Severe Frostbite and Amputation of their Toes

This teacher asked his pupils to write a composition about the coming to power of Khomeini in Iran and to show their support for Khomeini and his regime in their compositions. Two pupils either could not or did not want to write this composition.

These two pupils were forced, as punishment, to stand in the snow wearing shoes with holes in them for 3 hours, and then clean the snow in the school yard with spades. Later the same two students were made to stand outside in the snow again for another hour. A teacher who had just arrived to the school rushed to the rescue of the two kids, but not fast enough to save their toes from terrible frostbite.

According to the report, no measures were taken against this teacher from the Basij force and his deed was considered the regular work of the Basij in cities to “command to the good and to stop the bad”.
