UP school to burn effigies of Nawaz Sharif, Hafiz Saeed and ISIS this Dussehra
The traditional effigies of Ravana, his brother Kumbhkarna and son Megnad that are burnt every year to celebrate victory of good over evil on Dussehra are all set to be replaced with a newer lot this year.

According to the teachers and students of the Uma Devi Children's Academy School in Mohammadi city of Kheri district in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif will be the new Ravana, co-founder of LeT Hafiz Saeed the new Meghnad while Kumbhkarna will be rechristened as ISIS.

The children of the school have prepared large effigies of the trio using waste paper and have decided to celebrate every Dussehra similarly until Pakistan stops sponsoring terrorism. The school has attracted a lot of attention in the area for its unique take on Dussehra.

Sunny Gupta, media manager of the school, while talking to TOI said, "Dussehra is the day when the demon king Ravana was killed by Lord Rama. Ravana was the symbol of evil in ancient times but now the demons have taken on new faces. We believe that Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, who supports and allows all the terrorist activities in his nation, is the demon king of this era."

"Since Dussehra represents the day when good triumphs over evil, we have decided to replace the traditional effigies with those of Nawaz Sharif, his beloved Hafiz Saeed and IS," he added.

The idea actually sprang up during a poster making competition, wherein a few children had painted Sharif and company as modern Ravana, Meghnad and Kumbhkarna. The principal and staff members gave support to the idea as well.

Class XI students, Harshit Dixit and Harvinder Singh have been given the respective roles of modern day Ram and Laxman. They were made to dress as Indian soldiers.

Harshit said, "In ancient times, people were terrorised by the demon Ravana and in this era people are being terrorised mainly because of Pakistan, because they are supporting all the terrorist activities. Whatever is evil is Ravana for us. Nawaz Sharif is openly supporting terrorism and this is why he is Ravana for us."

Principal of the school, Pushpa Gupta said, "Dussehra is the day when we burn all the evil energy around and inside us. I completely agree with the idea of our students to represent Nawaz Sharif as a modern-day Ravana."
