Salamun Alaykum

A teacher of a girls' madrasa in Bangladesh seared legs of 14 students with a hot spatula in her punitive attempt to make them feel the agony of fire in hell.

This type of punitive attempt is not supported in the Quran. Islam goes by free will. No force can be applied in religious affair.

[10:99] Had your Lord willed, all the people on earth would have believed. Do you want to force the people to become believers?

The Quran suggests no force but invitation.

[16:125] You shall invite to the path of your Lord with wisdom and kind enlightenment, and debate with them in the best possible manner. Your Lord knows best who has strayed from His path, and He knows best who are the guided ones.

The Madrassah teacher needs to learn a lot from the Quran.

Thank you and may God guide me,
