Girl wearing burqa raised slogans of 'Jai Shri Ram', then received death threats; accused arrested

A strange case has come to light from Karnataka. Actually, the police here have arrested a person who had threatened to kill a girl and her friend. This threat was given because the girl had raised slogans of 'Jai Shri Ram' while wearing a burqa.

The accused has been identified as auto driver Neyaz Khan. The police and fact-checking wing have arrested the accused in Bengaluru's Konanakunte area, police said on Friday.

Police said that there was no case against the accused Neyaz Khan and he was very active on social media. The accused had told the police that he got angry after watching the video and immediately reacted to it. Talaghattapura police are investigating the matter by registering a complaint.

The Bangalore Police has been urged to take action against the accused who threatened the girl and her friend for chanting 'Jai Shri Ram'. After a video showing a burqa-clad girl and a cap-clad man chanting 'Jai Shri Ram' went viral, the accused threatened them on social media if they tried to chant 'Jai Shri Ram' again in this outfit. If they dare they will be cut into pieces.

In the video going viral, the accused youths can be heard saying, first take off the burqa and cap, then say whatever you want. A social media user who goes by the name 'The Right Wing Guy' later posted the threatening video tagging the Bengaluru Police and demanding action.

Sharing the post regarding the viral video, it is written, "A Muslim girl from Bengaluru, Karnataka, wearing a burqa and hijab, is threatening to chop the girl into pieces for openly chanting 'Jai Shri Ram'. Is the ambassador of Hijab this girl?" Will you stand up for the right to wear a burqa and shout whatever slogan you want?"

In fact, in the video of the boy and the girl that is going viral, both are saying, "Hey Dil Dimaag Mein Ek Naam, Jai Shri Ram, Jai Shri Ram." The accused youth said in his post, "Why are you bringing Islam in the middle? If you are seen by devout Muslims, you will be cut into two pieces."
