PESHAWAR (Web Desk) – A Peshawar resident has urged Khyber Pakhutnkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khatak to take strict action against a school which has refused admission to his younger brother for being a physically challenged child.

In a request posted online, Haris Sultan accused that Peshawar Model School refused admission to his 9-year-old brother, Abdullah, because he can’t walk like other children of his age group. Abdullah had undergone a brain-surgery at the age of 6 months and as a result he requires someone’s support to walk on stairs.

“Abdullah is very intelligent boy and has completed his grade 2 with distinction at school near our residence, and all of his teachers admire him for his performance. We decided to admit him at Peshawar Model School for further education, however the school refused admission despite the fact that Abdullah has cleared all required entry tests,” Harris stated in a facebook post.

According to him, the only reason behind cancellation of Abdullah’s admission is that he needs someone’s support to climb stairs to reach his class located at 3rd floor. The administration is not ready to accept Abdullah back at school despite multiple request of his family.

“May be such children can revolutionise the nation one day,” Haris said while requesting KPK government to look into the matter and take measurements for education of such physically challenged children.
