'Just like Ravana, Shakuni': Karnataka minister rubbishes issue over professor's 'terrorist' remark

BC Nagesh played down the issue by saying that such things are usual and the issue is just being stretched to politicise it.

A day after a video reportedly from a Karnataka college went viral, the state education minister has reacted to the controversy surrounding it.

"Almost everyone everyday uses words like 'Ravan' or 'Shakuni'... even in Assembly many times, we've spoken like this. It doesn't become an issue. When you speak about Kasab it becomes an issue," the minister and BJP leader told news agency ANI.

He further added, :the teacher shouldn't have said that... but it is just politics and confirming the vote bank."

A college professor had allegedly called a student a 'terrorist' in the classroom evoking a strong protest from the boy.

In the purported video, the student in the classroom asked, “How can you pass such statements?”, which was then followed by an argument.

Taking the argument further, the student said, “26/11 is not funny, being Muslim and facing such things in this country is not funny.”

To this the professor responded by apologising to the student and told him that he is equal to his son. The student in turn replied, “Will you treat your son like this? Will you label him as a terrorist, infront of everyone in the class?"

The professor, however, clarified that it was said in a funny manner, as per a Hindustan Times report.
