The State Youth Commission also charged a suo motu case on the incident in which the teachers were insulted through various social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and WhatsApp. Chintha Jerome, the chairperson of Youth Commission, noted in a Facebook post that those who make derogatory comments about the teachers who lead the online classes have a perverted mind and are a disgrace to Kerala and its culture.
Strict action should be taken against those who insult others, when the government and the teachers are working hard during a crisis time. The Youth Commission has also asked the State Police Chief to arrest the culprits as soon as possible and take legal action against them. Also the commission asked to submit within two weeks a report regarding the action taken.
