Howdy to whom it may concern,
I hope that you have preferable moments and be secure with your noble families and friends. Today I am really glad to have an opportunity to write you a few lines about violence in schools and universities that nowadays become increased in our community.
A child’s education is the foundation from which he or she will be able to go forth out into the world and build a life. Schools play a major role in this effort, and therefore it is reasonable to expect that these places of learning would be safe havens for the children while they are preparing for adulthood. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Violence defined as the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person, or against a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm or deprivation. From this definition, school violence could be described to be physical attacks between students or by students on school staff, which could occur on the way to or from school/school-sponsored events, on the school building or at a school-sponsored event. School violence is a public health problem and may take the form of bullying, shooting, brawls and a host of other physical abuses. Another cause of school violence is violent media. The impact of violent television programs and video games is largely underestimated in the society. Children/ teenagers often follow their favorite television characters in action movies and this leads to learned violent behavior in schools. In addition to this, the legal system in many areas- especially third-world countries is yet to develop specific laws that will help control school violence and make it an offence punishable by the law. Having identified some major causes of school violence, it is imperative to offer solutions to this social ill. Firstly, schools should set into action strong disciplinary measures which perpetrators of the act will face, if they fail to stand by the institution’s rules and regulations. There should also be up-to-date security measures in schools and school-sponsored events, to ensure that students are properly searched and stripped of any kind of weapon before entering the building Parents/Guardians have a key role to play as they should ensure that the atmosphere at home, where the child is care for is violent-free. Parents may also seek professional advice regarding the type of video games and television programs that children should be exposed to. In conclusion the government should also update statistical data on school violence, in order to further explain to the general public about the danger. Violence in schools is a social problem with an enormous flow effect- one act of violence can activate numerous negative outcomes- hence, the community is expected to work as a whole in order to control this social ill.
Have you ever seen any violence by your eyes where you study? If yes then what happen?
How can we control this social problem as a whole?

I hope you fine and time going well thanks from nice and wonder topic.
Every time I see this action. First of all why some people perform this action?
The important point, some student they do not implement rules of the school, for example when principle said. Students must be cut their hair .but some students don’t implement this rule, so they fight our teacher our principle .who are these? Every time this action performs foolish students and also the sons of the power people.
Because they don’t know this action is good or bad .if they know this is bad action. On that time they don’t perform this action. Teacher should be teach and show way student. This is the responsibility of our teacher. And also the ministry of higher education must be pay attention this problem .Because this is a big problem in the school. I hope so this problems finish at school.

Thank you so much Zahidullah for the comment.
You are absolutely right dear. There are many students who are not implementing the rules and regulations of the school upon themselves but it is the responsibility of every school principal to be strict in rules and must apply because if they keep it loose then probably the boys will start violence at schools. Do you have any idea about the prevention if yes would you please share it with us?
Hello dear sir Muhammad Naeem

Thank you Sibghatullah for the reply.
I am agree with you dear that they are bringing these bad things with themselves but here is the point that why they are bringing and why the responsible people don't take actions towards them? Do you any plan for controlling them?
This is really appreciable to criticize or point out the bad points of our society which can get us work for it and solve these problems so thank you very much.
As the school life is the most important period of life because it can lead our life to a very good or a very bad future so we must focus on this period of life than everything else and we should make sure that we have got every needy step in preparing a very good environment for school children. Unfortunately there are some obstacles in this way like bullying or other violence that can have very bad conclusion. Most of us are the evidence of such kind of cases and sometimes we ourselves are hunted or we have seen some other guys harassing other students. In order to prevent such kind of cases we must have guards in the gate of a school or universities or some students voluntarily should be there and check every students to make sure that they don’t have anything illegal with their selves. Also, we must have some public awareness programs and talk with the parents of students to inform and intimidate them from the worst conclusion so it will help us prevent or at least decrease such cases in the schools.
Thank you so much Fazal Khaliq for the comment.
I am on that with you dear. It is absolutely really important period for the students and they have to be very clever and they must struggle from the bottom of their heart to gain education and learn something. Great solution you have mentioned and by this InshaAllah we can control this social problem.
