Guru Suruj Dewan.2._sirfrankpeter@gmail.com_

Sir Frank Peters

An entire village is in deep mourning over the death of one of its most revered and respected members, Guru Suruj Dewan. Guru Suruj, 78, was a Holy Man, wise beyond his years, and a man of great compassion who served the poor and needy. Today a dark cloud of sadness hangs over the picturesque village of Haydarabad Ward-39, Gazipur, for the homeopathic doctor it admired and so loved. He devoted his life to caring for the welfare of people on earth and helping them to prepare their souls for the afterlife. He was a man of God, a servant of man, and a man of peace who never failed to demonstrate love for all mankind, regardless of race, creed or nationality.

Vital lessons in education to be learned from Nigeria

BANGLADESH SCHOOL TEACHERS GO BACK TO SCHOOL _sirfrankpeters@gmail.com_
Corporal punishment is an illuminated neon sign overhanging a dysfunctional society where schools and homes are no longer safe havens of love, protection and care for children Any government that permits corporal punishment to children in schools, madrassahs and homes would never qualify for a humanitarian award in the eyes of Allah or man. – IMPOSSIBLE!

For God’s sake stop beating the children

children out of school

By Sir Frank Peters

There’s an horrific misconception out there that beating children (corporal punishment) is obeying a command from God. There’s another totally ignorant belief that corporal punishment beats hell out of a child. There’s also one that claims corporal punishment serves the best interests of the child. And there are people who camouflage their own mental demons that torment them and these people perform the abuse and cruelty regularly in Allah’s name. What chances do a defenceless innocent child, only a few years away from the mother’s womb, have of living a normal childhood and becoming a balanced adult against such influential, compressed flawless ignorance? Many ‘teachers’ do not beat children in their charge allegedly for the chi...
