Earlier this week, Beaconhouse School System was accused of treason, in regards to pushing a curriculum that was seemingly ‘Indian-funded.”
The issue started when a question on an exam in the Beaconhouse School System was said to be biased and against Pakistani sentiment. Those engaging in the #BoycottBeaconhouse trend were offended by the contents of the books provided to the students.
Let’s just say, the claws came out all over Twitter.

However, in the latest stream of events, BeaconHouse released an official statement in response to the hate they have been receiving in the past couple of days.
Statement from Beaconhouse Beaconhouse is deeply grieved to note a sudden flurry of social media activity labeling it…
It turns out that the ‘hate-campaign’ was launched by an ex-employee of The Educators (the Montessori started by BeaconHouse) who was fired for ‘physically assaulting’ his line manager.
Oh but the plot thickens.
This mystery man did not work alone. In fact, he was used by a ‘certain media individuals,’ who used him to create the orchestrated sponsored campaign. Motives have yet to be made clear.
The rest of the release was a detailed look into the campaign as well as meticulously pointing out why each of the claims of treason was invalid.
What else did people expect? It’s Beaconhouse, they SCHOOLED THEM.
And NOW, there is a whole new hashtag, #BeaconhouseResponse that is ready to rival the initial one.
All the top notch schools conduct the same extracurricular activities yet only Beacon House's were highlighted. Why? #BeaconhouseResponse

Regarding an exam paper being circulated online, Beaconhouse clarified that the exam paper is of Cambridge O levels and not from Beaconhouse. The question is then why Beaconhouse is being falsely accused?#BeaconhouseResponsehttps://t.co/eq5joyTuaG

Have we truly become a society that harbours so much hate that we will give no person or institution the benefit of the doubt?
