Teacher forgives student who caused him to lose part of finger

A teacher who lost part of a finger has forgiven the student who slammed the car door that caused the freak accident, reported Harian Metro.

"I do not know who slammed the car door but I've already forgiven the person.

"There is not a single thought of anger or revenge in my heart, even if I eventually find out who did it.

"I take it as fate and a sacrifice. What happened to me has not affected my spirit to continue to work and educate future generations," said the 53-year-old Sharipuddin Jaafar.

Sharipuddin was rushed to Kuala Kangsar Hospital after his finger was sliced off when a student accidentally slammed the car door in the 5pm incident on April 20.

He was later transferred to Taiping Hospital.

The picture of Sharipuddin's dismembered finger went viral on social media after it was uploaded by his sibling, which attracted strong response from the public.

Recalling the incident, the teacher said he was in the driver's seat without realising that his hand was at the back door when one of his student slammed it shut.

He immediately jerked his hand away, breaking off a 1cm-long part of his digit.
