The brawl seen in the video arose out of an argument between passengers and girl students who blocked the bus on the road, alleging that the bus did not stop at the stand in front of Kumbala Kansa Women’s College. There are no communal issues in the incident.
A video is going viral on social media claiming that people who don’t wear burqas have been stopped from boarding the bus. A Twitter user Harinder Sikka shared the video with the message, “NEW KERALA STORY Now Hindu women to be #Halal Certified? In Kerala, muslim women allegedly fought, demanded only BURQA clad women in bus. Why such precondition on #Hindus for using public Tpt? Because, 90% of #Hindus #Sikhs are eating #Halalcertifiedfood Veg-Non Veg foods for which Babas like Ramdev pay huge taxes to Halal boards. Over Rs 120,000 crores collected annually also fund terror operations,legal battles? Who’s behind heinous crimes? #CONgress? @RahulGandhi won’t even squeak. But why’s everyone else silent? ”
The video is going viral on Youtube as well. You can watch the video here.
On carefully watching the video, we didn't find anything in the video that suggests the women in the burqa were demanding only burqa clad women in the bus. We found that the woman wearing a burqa was saying, “Why did you call the dog Molle? Nayinte mole (daughter of dog). We then did a keyword search in Malayalam and found the same video posted on October 21, 2023, on the Third Eye Media Facebook page. According to the post, female students stopped the bus claiming that it had failed to make a stop at the designated bus stand. In response, the bus staff argued that the bus stand had been constructed without proper authorization. This incident occurred in Kumbala Sithangoli, located in Kasargod.
We also found an article by Reporter, buses would often leave without stopping at a newly constructed bus stop near Khansa Women’s College for Advanced Studies at Bhaskara Nagar on Kumbala-Mulleria KSTP road in Kerala’s Kasaragod. As a result, the students of Khansa Women’s College on October 22 stopped the bus on the road and protested.
We also found a detailed reportage of the incident on a YouTube channel called Public Kerala. In the video, the host reiterates what the girls said to the saree-clad woman. According to him, the girls said, “You are not supporting us; you are opposing us because you don’t fully comprehend our predicament. If your children were facing the same issue of buses not stopping day after day, you would stand by us as well.”
In conclusion, the brawl seen in the video arose out of an argument between passengers and girl students who blocked the bus on the road, alleging that the bus did not stop at the stand in front of Kumbala Kansa Women’s College. There are no communal issues in the incident.
