The hijab controversy in Karnataka has triggered controversy across the country. Muslim students in Karnataka have been demanding to be allowed to wear burqa inside colleges while colleges say that the burqas or hijabs are not part of uniform and hence should not be allowed. Amid all this, a video went viral today where a burqa clad person was seen being heckled by some men as that person tried to enter the college. Responding, she yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ to the people who were chanting Jai Shri Ram.
In this, pro-AAP blog Janta Ka Reporter referred to the students protesting against the burqa and chanting Jai Shri Ram as ‘terrorists’.
A Twitter user named INFERNO (@TheAngryLord) pointed this out via a tweet stating “Hi @ianuragthakur, how can we tolerate such media outlets calling ppl chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ as terr0rists? This piece of crap is owned by @RifatJawaid”
