If a private school is a forcing a child to get a specific hairstyle, can it be considered as child rights violation in India?

Update: The school authorities beat the child and humiliate him in front of the class. His parents are called and he's suspended for a day.

How is the school forcing the child?

If it's part of the uniform code then that is a condition of the contract between the school and the child's parents; a contract they freely entered into. If the parent's want the child to attend then they can force the child to have the haircut; or withdraw them from the school.

The parent's have every right to dictate how the child gets their hair cut.

    This isn't really a question about a haircut. It is about an assault on a child.

    @phoog I would suggest that a different question be asked.
