It seems to be more common than you know about in Madrassah where young muslim students are required to memorize the Koran. To America's shame, it's just not being addressed and reported in American media. If the boys aren't living up to the expectations, they are beaten and flogged and tortured and often die. The following recent story, from Emirates 247 tells of a five year student who was flogged with a stick by his teacher in Koran class.
A Koran memorization teacher used his stick to lash a five-year-old school boy, causing bruises and scars all over his back and trigger a police hunt for the fleeing man, a newspaper said on Thursday.
The boy was changing his clothes at home in the western town of Makkah when his parents noticed the lashing marks on his little body.
The boy told his father that the Islamic lessons teacher flogged him with the stick on his back during class at a Koran memorization centre in the holy city.
“The father reported the teacher to the police while the boy was taken to hospital…doctors said he needed treatment for five days,” the Arabic language daily Alriyadh said, adding that police are searching for the teacher.
