Karnataka: Police question school students over Anti-CAA play

Bidar: Karnataka police sealed the offices of Shaheen School after its students participated in a play against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).


The controversy started after a journalist, Mohammed Yusuf Raheem uploaded the video of the play which was staged on the Republic day, January 26.

In the play, the participating children say that if anyone asks for documents then they should be hit with slippers.

Reacting on it, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), a student organization affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), had protested saying the play was derogatory.

Case registered

A case has been registered against the school management under Sections 124A (sedition), 504 (provoking breach of peace), 505(2) (statements promoting enmity), 34 (act done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) and 153A (promoting communal hatred) .

Meanwhile, Thouseef Madikeri, CEO of Shaheen Education Institute said that senior cops visited the school and mentally harassed the students.

He further alleged that policemen interrogated students of classes 4 and 5.

Authorities of the institution are making an attempt to get bail from local court, he added.

The Ancient Times

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.
