A shocking incident happened in Telangana’s Nizamabad where the principal of a Government College was thrashed by RSS and ABVP workers during flag hoisting on Independence Day.
RSS and ABVP workers allegedly shouted slogans against the principal Mohammed Yakeen asking him to remove his shoes during flag hoisting. After Yakeen refused to do so, he was allegedly heckled and thrashed by more than a dozen villagers and student activists who pulled him and forced him to say “Jai Shri Ram and Bharat Mata Ki jai”.
The principal told his assaulters that there was no rule of removing one’s footwear while unfurling the National Flag and even the Prime Minister and Military Officers didn’t do so.
The college authorities have written to the Chief Minister seeking arrest of the mob. Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) led a strong protest demanding immediate action against all those involved in the incident.
The entire incident has been captured by a mobile camera and has gone viral. The video shows several people hurling abuses and chanting slogans and pushing Mohammed Yakeen grabbing him by his collar, while he was calmly trying to address them.
The police have registered a case against the mob.
