Anti-CAA school drama puts PM in ‘bad light’, Karnataka Police file case against institution
ABVP activists in Karnataka's Bidar also staged a protest over the institute’s anti-CAA drama that insulted PM Modi. They submitted a memorandum to the state home minister.
Bidar: The Bidar Police on Monday registered a case against Shaheen Education Institute of Bidar, in Karnataka, on charges of uploading a video of a school drama against CAA/NRC, projecting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in bad light.
The drama was staged on Sunday as part of annual school function.
A social worker, who goes by the name Nilesh Rakshyal, lodged a complaint and a case was registered based on it.
The complainant stated that students of the institute were made to stage the drama, humiliating PM Modi.
The drama also sent a message that people of one community would have to leave the country if CAA and NRC were brought into force.
Video footage of the drama was uploaded on to a social media website by Mohammad Yousuf Rahim of Bidar, the complainant said.
Rakshyal claimed that the video of the drama staged by kids went viral on social media and it could upset peace in society, besides sending a wrong message about government policies and decisions.
He demanded legal action against Rahim and the institute.
The ABVP also staged a protest over the drama staged in the institute and submitted a memorandum to the state home minister.
The video has gone viral on social media and many netizens have said such messages should not be part of any school function while this may manipulate innocent minds of the children and school is not a place where students should portray the Prime Minister in bad light.
