The teacher in the video tells the Muslim student that ‘you are like my son’, to which the young student says, ‘Will you talk to your son like this? Will you call your son a terrorist?” In response, the teacher says ‘no’, to which the student said, ‘How can you say this to me?’

“You are a professor, you are a teacher, you cannot call me like that,” the student said, to which the professor can be heard apologizing. The student can be heard saying, “Apologizing cannot change your thinking.”

The incident took place on Friday at the Manipal Institute of Technology in Udupi where the teacher has been suspended for declaring the student a terrorist. According to the report, the institute suspended the teacher and ordered an inquiry while the student is being counselled.

Ashok Swain, a professor at Upasala University, shared the video and wrote that in India a professor was calling a Muslim student a terrorist inside the classroom. He stated that it used to happen to minorities in India.

Journalist Swati Chaturvedi tweeted that this video was shameful and this was how it happened every day in Narendra Modi’s India.

Al Jazeera journalist Saif Khalid said it was not a joke to call the student a terrorist. He demanded that the teacher be fired from his job.

Actor Arifi Lamba said that hatred and communalism have reached learning places, a student should not have to defend himself against bigotry.
