The incident occurred on Tuesday evening when his mother went to the madrasa to see the child on his birthday.
As she was leaving, the boy ran after his mother. At this, the teacher grabbed him by the neck, took him into a room and threw him on the floor beating him severely with a cane.
A video taken by a bystander, sparking outrage, quickly spread through social media at night.
UNO Ruhul Amin said, "After learning about the incident, I went to the madrasa with the police around 12:30 am on Wednesday and informed his parents rescuing the child."
At the same time, Maulana Yahya was ordered to be expelled from Hafezi Madrasa Markazul Islamic Academy.
The child's mother Parveen Akhtar and father Md. Joynal told UNO in a letter that they were shocked and angry at the incident. However, considering the future of the child, initially they requested not to take any legal action against the madrasa teacher.
