Aligarh: In a shocking incident, a Muslim boy was punished for wearing Kalava (sacred Hindu thread) by none other than a former Hindu BJP mayor of Aligarh.
The incident is reported from UP’ Aligarh where Shakuntala Bharti on Friday was caught on camera punishing the Muslim boy by making him do sit ups after she caught him wearing Kalava around his wrist, TN reports.
She not only punished the boy but also alleged the boy was trying to entice girls in the area.
The undeterred boy replied the red thread is from Ajmer Sharif Dargah and not some Kalava.
The BJP leader further asks him: “Why have you come here? Does your sister stay here?” and asks him to hold his ears.
“Will you make the minor girls run away (from their homes?” she goes on.
This BJP leader was in news in 2016 when a communal clash had broken out between two communities over an incident of eve-teasing.
