Earlier, in a confrontation that was caught on camera, a student in a hijab stood her ground as she was heckled by a large group of slogan shouting young men wearing saffron scarves at a college named Mandya Pre-university college in Karnataka. In the video, the young woman could be seen parking her scooter and heading towards the college campus.
On seeing her, a bunch of students wearing saffron scarves shouted “Jai Shree Ram” and advanced towards her. The lone student didn’t look intimidated as she was seen shouting back “All hu Akbar” by raising her hand. The men followed her when se walked forward. “What is the problem if I am wearing the burqa ?” she says to a person.
However, the men continued following the girl, chanting the slogan and the college officials stepped in to guard the girl and stopped the men. Watch the video below :

The harassment of young Muslim girls in Karnataka, both by the State and the ABVP goons, is just a trailer to BJP’s ideal Bharat.
Absolutely shameful. https://t.co/HfaqaNnVdG

Raise your sons better! A bunch of ugly, cowards attacking a lone woman in a pack and feeling proud of it ? WHAT LOSERS! Shameful. They’ll be jobless, more frustrated and penniless in a few years. What poor upbringing! No sympathy, no redemption for them. I spit on your kind. https://t.co/tvsdBwREZO

மத நல்லிணக்கம் வேற்றுமையில் ஒற்றுமை என்ற நம் பண்பாட்டையும், அரசியலமைப்புச் சட்டத்தையும், ஜனநாயகத்தையும் காப்பதற்கு ஒன்றுகூட வேண்டிய நேரமிது. பெண்கள் என்ன ஆடை உடுத்துகிறார்கள் என்பதில்லை இந்த சமூகத்தின் பிரச்சனை.

இந்நிலை கண்டு வருத்தமும் அச்சமும் வருகிறது. பிஞ்சு நெஞ்சங்களில் மதவெறி எனும் நஞ்சு கலக்க விட்டுவிட்டோம். இது பெரியார் மண், இங்கு இது நடக்காது என்று அமைதியாக இருத்தல் ஆகாது. சுத்தமான ஒரு குடம் நீரை நஞ்சாக்க ஒரு துளி விஷம் போதும்#HijabIsIndividualRight

Shameful incident. But why does the camera follow her from the time she parks the vehicle? Was the person who recorded this expecting it? Maybe they started heckling as she came in and the cameraperson was quick to start recording? But it is a bit strange….. https://t.co/N1JelD0Gik
