In one of the tweets, she wrote, “So much of hatred for Muslims out there… and now it has reached such an extent that students are harassing and molesting others. RT (retweet) so it can reach out to every single person out there. Thank you. Proud Muslim” and tagged PM Modi and few others.

After receiving enormous support from various sections of the society, the girl wrote, “I posted my story because I wanted to share what I have gone through… how miserable I felt…. Yes I haven’t complained to police because I will complain to college higher authorities tomorrow.”
“If they don’t come up with some serious conclusion then I will go further. Thank you for your concern,” she added.
