Chennai. Once again Hindu society is strongly reminded of ‘Christian institutions are unsafe for girl student’ as quoted by Justice Vaidyanathan.
M. Lavanya 12thgrade student of Thirukattupalli Sacred Heart High School committed suicide. Why?
Lavanya was forced to convert to Christianity by the Christian institution, but she refused to do the same.
The school, which is a Christian institution, had forced Lavanya to convert to Christianity. However, she refused to do the same. The administration that was angered by Lavanya’s resistance to convert, refused to send her home during the Pongal holidays. Instead, she was forced to stay at the school and made to do chores such as cleaning toilets of the school, washing dishes and cooking. A disheartened Lavanya has attempted suicide due to this reason by consuming pesticides used in gardens.
She first vomited on the night of January 9 and was taken to a nearby clinic. As the vomiting continued, the warden of the hostel called her parents and asked them to take her home. When she went back home, Lavanya had not disclosed that she had drunk pesticides.
In this situation, she was admitted to the Tanjore Government Medical college hospital. The child who consumed poison had almost 85% of her lungs affected. She was being treated in the Intensive Care Unit.
A tweet shows the child’s last few words, where she describes the torture she was put through in the school.
“My names is Lavanya. They (school) had asked my parents in my presence if they can convert me to Christianity and help her for further studies. Since, I didn’t accept, they kept scolding me”, she says in the video. She also named one who had allegedly tortured her.
Hindu organizations held protest and demanded justice for Lavanya. Sahaya Mari, warden of the hostel was arrested.
