Various types of violence often occurs in the community, for example; a beating or bullying the other teenager, a husband slapping his wife, the people who attacked a burglar, a group of pickpockets who was shot by police and the worst is, the violence perpetrated by children aged 5-...

Ignorant actions of a principal of a school in...
