According to the liberal cabal, the word ‘lynching’ came into existence only after the Modi Government came into power. But unfortunately, the liberals only use ‘lynching’ to taint the image of India and Hindus. The same cabal that comes out with banners and posters, on selective occasions keeps mum when the victim of an incident identifies as a ‘Hindu’. Why are we saying this, because what was feared has happened. Several cases of violence have been reported from districts of Karnataka associated with the Hijab Controversy.

Violence in Karantaka
The Hijab Controversy has travelled from Karnataka to Maharashtra. The Karnataka High Court is hearing a plea regarding the same. The court has directed the students to not wear any kind of religious clothes like saffron shawls or Hijab until further orders.
In between all of this violence broke out in Karnataka, where people from Hindu community were targeted over alleged WhatsApp status.

In the video Nagaraj was seen sitting in a corner of a street when the mob attacks him. He was mercilessly beaten and kiced by the group of youths.
Local Police’s Action
In order to control the widespread violence, the District Administration had issued prohibitory orders. The Police department had requested the residents to not take law in their hands otherwise strict actions can be taken against them. Not only the aforementioned people supporting Hijab Ban but the Police officials also sustained several injuries at the Degree College Protest, which had turned violent.
Police force has been deployed in all sensitive areas of the region to keep the situation in check.
The Hijab Controversy
The tussle over Hijab began in late December and Early January, where the demand to enter the educational institution premises with Hijab was not entertained by the authorities.

Later the gap widened that divided the Public opinion into two fractions. The first section is that who is sending solidarity to the girls who want to carry Hijab even in Educational Institutions . And this is done not in the name of any religion but in the name of ‘Freedom to choose what to wear’. The second section has opined that uniform should be followed in all institutions. Some of them also consider the practice opf coverage as ‘oppresive’. The issue is being heard by the Karnataka High Court.
In between of these arguments and demands, violent clashes broke out at several places in Karnataka. Also, in some places targeted attacks were carried out in which the aforementioned victims sustained the injuries.
