I Would Fight If Anyone Flogged My Children Like Kwara Quranic Students - Islamic Cleric Says

An Islamic cleric, Imam Idris Olayinka Qomarudeen, has condemned the brutal flogging of some madrasa (a college of Islamic instruction) students in Kwara State as a form of punishment by some senior students of the school on the order of their cleric.

He advised other clerics particularly the heads of Islamic Schools to be careful with the way they give punishment to other people's children.

He said, "My brothers in Islam particular those who tutor children in Arabic lessons, let's take things easy. A video had gone viral on social media. The way the students are being flogged is not proper. Islam has not stated that we should beat them this way. Even the love of God will not allow you beat them like this.

"The issue is complicated. Even if parents ask you to help them to discipline their children, you are not meant to beat them like you are flogging mad people. Even the shameless cleric was saying 'beat them well'

What do you have to say concerning the reaction of the Islamic cleric towards the beating of the students?
