Tense moments prevailed in Karnataka’s Shivamogga district as a burqa-clad Muslim woman accompanied by a child shouted Allahu Akbar amongst chants of Jai Shri Ram on Monday, January 22.
The incident took place at Shivappa Nayaka Circle where several right-wing supporters gathered to celebrate the consecration of Ram temple by distributing sweets. Suddenly, the woman started shouting slogans against PM Modi, accusing him of leading the country astray.
“Do you have any shame? Because of you people, the country has been destroyed. You people are supporting Modi. You don’t know how Modi has cheated you. You will understand it later,” the woman is heard saying in the video that quickly went viral on social media.
While speaking, she is interrupted by Jai Shri Ram chants, triggering her to shout Allahu Akbar in response.
Police soon rushed to the spot and took her and her child away. According to the police, the woman’s father alleged that his daughter has been ‘mentally unstable’ for months and is currently undergoing treatment. Further investigations are on.
