An Indian school principle lost his 12 years of services just for liking posts related to Palestine on social media.

Parveen Shaikh was the principle of a top school in Mumbai, Somaiya School, located in the Vidyavihar area.

In an official statement released, the school expressed concerns over the principal’s social media activities.

“It has come to our attention that the social media activities of Parveen Shaikh have been starkly misaligned with the values we cherish,” read the statement.

Following that, the school management decided to terminate Parveen Shaikh’s contract.

The school stressed the importance of responsible exercise of this right. The decision to ask the principal to resign was met with strong opposition from Parveen Shaikh, who labeled her termination as “completely illegal, drastic, and unwarranted.”

“My work as a school principal has been exceptional and my termination for such a reason is wrongful and unjust,” she claimed.

She expressed shock over what she described as a “politically motivated” action.

“This action appears to be politically motivated. I hold firm belief in our legal system and the Indian Constitution and I am currently considering my legal options,” she claimed.
