Muslim teachers at Pernawa Government High School first pressured headmaster Saddique Azam to resign, saying that they refused to accept a government-imposed choora, a derogatory term referring to impoverished Christian street sweepers, to supervise them. They then reportedly told Azam that the only way he could continue as head teacher was to become a puppet in their hands.
