I-Day drama by Punjab school kids portrayed Muslim man as terrorist, Congress demands apology

On Independence Day, the school students staged a play depicting a Muslim man wearing a religious white cap as a terrorist.

Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Tuesday expressed his anger at the way an Independence Day drama in a government school depicts Muslims, saying he is shocked to see the entire Muslim community being painted as “terrorists” by the AAP government in Punjab.

On Independence Day, the school students staged a play depicting a Muslim man wearing a religious white cap as a terrorist.

According to Khaira, who is also a Punjab legislative assembly member representing the Bholath constituency, the drama held in a school in his constituency Bholath in the Kapurthala district.

“I’m shocked to see entire Muslim community being painted as “Terrorists” by @BhagwantMann govt in their zeal to prove their patriotism during Independence Day celebrations at Bholath (Kpt)! This is a joke of our secularism by none less than govt itself! Plz, tender apology to Muslims,” Khaira, former Leader of Opposition tweeted.
