Hyderabad: Mr. Narasimha Swamy, Inspector of Police, Armoor (Rural) informed that police arrested 6 persons who had allegedly assaulted Mr. Yakeenuddin, Principal Govt. Junior College on the occasion of Independence Day.
It may be mentioned that Hindutva activists, ABVP and RSS workers assaulted the Muslim Principal of a Govt. junior college when he had refused to take off his shoes while hoisting the national flag on the Independence Day saying that there is no such rule. This incident occurred at Govt. Junior College, Ailapur village of Nizamabad district.
It may be noted that PM Modi hoisted the flag at Red Fort when he was wearing the shoes and BJP President Mr. Amit Shah also hoisted the flag at party office wearing the shoes. There is no such rule to remove the shoes while hoisting the flag. It was only a pretext to humiliate a Muslim Principal.
