611. Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah

A terrible tragedy struck the Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah so-called boarding school in Kuala Lumpur when fire broke out. It is not known why there only was one exit but at other so-called school of similar kind students are forced to attend. In some case some of the students were even forced to wear shackles in order to prevent them from running.

The school was not regulated by the officials and that is a huge security risk. Because it allows the management to design the schools as prisons which are deadly when we talk fires.

The teenagers who died were trapped with no chance of escaping. The windows had bars and of course once the fire blocked the single exit possibility, they could only wait and die.

A terrible loss for their families and the local community in general all because some parents prefer their child to memorize some religious words instead of getting a real education which could have enabled them for a future.

The government should step in and close schools down until they are reconstructed to be more safe in order to prevent future tragedies like this one.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
